What are pinned posts?

A pinned post is displayed at the top of your feed to highlight it. You can only pin one post at a time, so by pinning a post you are replacing the currently pinned post (if any).

Do I have a pinned post already? Well, in your dashboard your current pinned post will look like so:

How to pin a post?

There are two main methods to pin a post: from the editor (while ) or from the dashboard (the list of already created posts).

From the editor.

  1. While creating or editing a post, look for the category dropdown at the top right of that post’s editing screen.
  2. Look for the Pin to top of feed option and click on it. If the switch is green and to the right, the option is enabled (toggle_on).
  3. A modal window will appear asking to confirm what you’re about to do. Click on Accept.
  4. Don’t forget to save your changes.
  5. Your post is pinned! From now on, users will see it at the post of your feed.

From the dashboard.

  1. In your Beamer dashboard go to Notifications by clicking on the menu at your left.
  2. Look in the feed for the post you want to pin or highlight. In the top right corner of the post, click on the star icon (star_outline).
  3. A modal window will appear asking to confirm what you’re about to do. Click on Accept.
  4. Your post is pinned! From now on, users will see it at the post of your feed.
