How to Pin


Pinning now works on both a Stream (Viewer Window) and a Wall (LiveContentWall). Up to three pieces of content can be pinned.


  • To Pin a Post - Mouseover the existing item in EventStudio and click Pin. Pin any published or unpublished post; including comments, images, videos, Tweets, or any media source. Pin up to three items at once. (Note: Polls, Newsflashes and Scoreboards appear in the Notification Center and can't currently be "Pinned".)
  • Create a New Pin - Write a new Pinned post by using the Pinning textbox (available from the Pinning menu). Simply click in the textbox to open. The Pinning textbox includes a RichText editor and supports HTML. Use the "Add Event Media" link to upload images (with or without captions) or videos.
  • Manage Pins - The Pinning menu (accessible by clicking the Pin icon above the Live Event viewer) lets you customize the order of the items and add/remove Pins at anytime.

Pin Appearance (Stream)

The layout and appearance of items pinned to a Stream is dependent on the Pinboard Appearance setting you choose when you create the event Embed Code (using the EventDesigner).

  • If Pinboard is turned ON then Pinned items will appear highlighted in a dedicated "Pinboard" area above the Viewer Window.
  • If Pinboard is turned OFF then Pins will appear at the top of the event, within the Viewer Window.
  • The Pinboard is an effective tool to draw attention to featured content. However if you have height restrictions we recommend turning Pinboard 'Off'.
  • To customize the style of your Pinboard you can override the default CSS. To learn more please email support.

Pin Appearance (LiveContentWall)

When a post is pinned to a LiveContentWall it will persistently appear at the Top + Left column; ensuring it is seen by all Readers. This is a great feature for highlighting a post or featuring an Ad or sponsorship. Showing Pinned items is optional and can be turned on/off from the EventDesigner as needed.

  • If Pinboard is turned ON then Pinned items will appear at the top left. The number of columns your Wall has will impact the position.
  • If Pinboard is turned OFF then Pins will NOT appear on the Wall.
  • The Pinboard is an effective tool to draw attention to featured content. However if you have strict height restrictions and are using a single or double column then we recommend turning Pinboard 'Off' or limiting the number of pins to ensure that the regular published items can still be seen by your Readers.
