You can configure how TinyPortal shows content on your frontpage in the form of articles and forum posts using the setting Frontpage settings (see What to display on frontpage)

It is also possible to give articles or posts extra attention by 'Featuring' them, meaning that these will remain on top of the front page at all time...

Promoting articles
It you want to get an article to stay on the frontpage like a sticky, you need to set it as a "Featured article", or switch it to "Show on frontpage".
To do that go to: "TinyPortal > Articles and Categories",
Then in the TP Admin menu choose the option "Articles"

To make an article featured set it to "Set As Featured".

To make an article show on frontpage set the correct setting.

Promoting posts
You can also choose for a frontpage that shows specific topics from your forum: this way you have a dynamic frontpage reflecting featured discussions on your forum.

To do this you must choose one of these options in the Frontpage settings:
Promoted topics only or Promoted topics + articles - sorted on date
The button "Promote to frontpage"  on the topic will only be available if one of these frontpage settings is set!

To set a topic to be moved to the frontpage you can simple press "Promote to frontpage"

This button will only be available for users that have the permissions to manage TinyPortal settings: you regular visitors will not have this option, so they cannot promote their own topics to the frontpage..
