I was just reading this article about adding a banner topic, but in the Admin settings I do not have the setting ‘banner topic’ as described in the article. Is there a setting I have to activate first?
That article is old. Now it is under Admin settings on the topic, pin topic, and at the bottom there is the option to make it a banner topic.
Awesome, thanks Owen both for the answer and the quick reply!
I was going to bump it, but I saw that it was closed. @codinghorror my suggestion is that you make some of the essential tutorials into wikis so that users can edit them as soon as they change.
OK, I edited that topic to bring it up to date.
I found that in order to make a banner topic, you had to select a topic, press a hamburger button, choose
Un-pin topic... and then press a button to make it a banner topic.
You need to Un-pin only if a topic is already Pinned (on its category) or Pinned globally (on the topics list). If it’s a normal topic you do need to Un-pin.
