Pinning not working? ( 18:22:13 FriApr 19 2002 )

I made a birthday board, with every month being a new thread and pinned them in order. They were ok for a while, now they're out of order. What happened?? :eek:

Pinning a thread makes it stick to the top of the forum, above none-pinned threads. :smile: If you have more than one pinned thread in a forum, they will still follow the regular guidelines to moving when they are replied to, but within the batch of pinned threads. :smile: (And I believe they go the other way up too).

Pinning isn't designed to keep all threads in a forum in the same order, just to stick one or two threads to the top... :smile:

Here's an idea - you can just change the default order on that forum. Click on "Edit Forums", then "Edit Settings", then in "Forum display name", put this:

Code:

</a><a class=forumlistlink href="http://bb.bbboy.net/support-viewforum?forum=1&order=datestarted">
Forum Name</a><a href="javascript:;">


Change "support" to your BoardID, and change the forum number (1 in there) to the number of the forum, and change "Forum Name" to the text.... And it'll order them by time of first starting when people click on it. :smile:

With pinned topics you can allways reorder them by selecting whichever one you want and using mod options to move the thread to another forum but selecting the same forum it is allready in and that will move the selected thread back to the top of the forum....

Hope that made sense....:thumb:

That is to say if you have 8 pinned topics it will move it back to the top of the pinned topics.....
