As requested from the Envato team (@matthew.cox @travis) where they’ve reorganized their forums into two main categories aimed at different users. When the
show subcategory list setting is enabled, then pinned topics in the parent category are shown below the subcategory list. They would like to be able to show the pinned topic(s) above the subcategory list. Using a global banner won’t work in this case.
The column headings (Topic, Category, Users, Replies) for the pinned topics list probably aren’t needed.
