Previously, repository admins could pin up to four important discussions above the list of discussions for the repository or organization. Now, they can also pin discussions to a specific discussion category to provide context relevant to that category. These pins appear above the list of discussions in that category and are not affected by pagination or search.
More enhancements to Discussions available today:
- Category titles and descriptions are surfaced on a discussion category page, to help guide your community.
- If your GitHub organization is renamed, and you use organization discussions, links to the old discussions will now redirect appropriately.
- As an organization admin, when blocking a user from your organization via a discussion or discussion comment, you now have the option to also hide their existing comments in the organization.
