How to I stop topics automatically un-pinning when a user reaches the bottom?

Team,

It is my belief that thread pinning is at the user level. Once you’ve seen a pinned thread it unpins at the user level? In reading it looks like I can force pin a topic so it’s always on top.

How the hell do I do that?

Thanks friends,
Mike

Hello there @P2W!

You can ensure pinned topics stay at the top of a page by changing these settings as an admin:


However, on a user level thry can go to preferences -> Interface and change this setting

Hope this helps :blush:

This setting is confusing. It’s not clear that one of these settings is to let the user have the choice in terms of the behavior (“by default”), while the other setting removes the option from the user. It’s a pretty subtle difference.

Maybe I’m a dunderhead, but I wasted some time before I realized what was going on.

Oh no, sorry to hear that! I agree that it can be confusing. Do you have a recommended setting description that would make that distinction clearer?

So in some sections it appears to be working while in others pinned topics are plummeting down the section. I have both check boxes unchecked.

Valorant - P2W.GG for example.

Have you unchecked it on your profile ?

It’s actually pinning in the subcategory. Is there a way to make a post from a subcategory pin to it’s main category?

Another question can I disable the ability to unpin at the user level? I plan to monetize that feature and user disabling defeats that purpose

This is not possible yet.

Perhaps you can hide the option from the user preferences with some clever CSS?
