If you go to my profile, you can see it in action:
DEV now allows you to pin up to five posts at the top of your profile feed, in case you want to show off your best writing to any visitors.
In order to pin a post, click on the
Manage button on your posts and then click
Pin to Profile. We will also probably add this to more quickly accessible area in the future.
Currently the five posts display chronologically but I think we could follow up with giving more control here. This is also a precursor to a possible design adjustment which would highlight your pins in a different format.
