Should trust level 4 be able to pin a sitewide banner?

I see the banner feature as a Staff only feature, since it basically highlights sitewide a message.
Can pin topic as banner be disabled for anyone other than staff? Thank you.

They are level 4 because I need them to be able to “moderate” their own boards, but I would not want them to post a sitewide banner.

I’m ok with them pinning posts under their own assigned boards, but not pin globally or set banners.

Per category moderation is coming, but it isn’t here yet.

You’re using TL4 for something outside its purpose, so it’s not going to behave the way you want it to.

Thank you sir. I Look forward for this feature.

I actually support the request that TL4 not be able to do a sitewide banner pin. Can you add that to your list low-pri @techAPJ?


I experimented a bit with hiding some actions from Trust Level 4 back in Dec 2017. Not perfect but it might be good enough as a temporary approach. eg. Choose selectors as per need.

/* personal messages display none wrench leaders */
  body:not(.staff):not(.archetype-regular) .toggle-admin-menu { 
    display: none;
/* personal messages display none individual buttons leaders */ 
/* pin and archive are n/a */
  body:not(.staff):not(.archetype-regular) .topic-admin-multi-select 
, body:not(.staff):not(.archetype-regular) .topic-admin-close 
, body:not(.staff):not(.archetype-regular) .topic-admin-visible {
    display: none; 
/* topics display none individual buttons leaders */ 
/* topic-admin-close and topic-admin-visible not in this example set */
  body:not(.staff):not(.archetype-private_message) .topic-admin-multi-select 
, body:not(.staff):not(.archetype-private_message) .topic-admin-pin 
, body:not(.staff):not(.archetype-private_message) .topic-admin-archive {
    display: none; 

Done via:

Only staff users will now be able to add or remove banner.


Thank you so much, I believe it’s gonna be available in the upcoming beta?

Sure, it will be. If you’re on tests-passed branch the fix should be available as soon as you update your Discourse instance.
