When you create or edit a blog post, there's a panel on top of your tool bar where you can enter additional information for your post. Click to open it.
In order to keep a news item on top of all the others in the Corporate or Personal News Feed macro, check the "Sticky news" checkbox. It will automatically open a date picker field this field is mandatory, you cannot save your post without one. This date determines, when the post you are editing will lose its "sticky" status automatically. By default the date is set to two weeks in the future, but you can change it to any future date you like. If you want to make your post sticky forever, simply set a date in the next century
You can edit your post and uncheck the checkbox any time. The news will then lose its sticky status immediately upon saving.
The mandatory date makes sure, that you will not have dozens of sticky posts to clean up manually when they clutter up your feeds too much.
Time zone support
Wherever there's a date or a date and time, Linchpin Enterprise News will show it to you in your time zone. To find out, in which time zone you are located, we look at the settings in your browser, which in turn takes the info from the settings on your computer.
There is a separate setting in your confluence user profile settings for the time zone. If this setting differs from the time zone you have set on your computer, we will ignore the Confluence setting and go with your computer setting. We do that, because we know from experience that most people don't even know about this Confluence setting, let alone set it to the correct value. We assume that most people will have the time set to the correct time zone on their computers though.
