Creating a Pinned Page

You can permanently pin any blog post to your blog's navigation bar (like an “About” or “Contact” page) by following these steps:

  1. Publish a post to your blog
  2. Go to your blog home page by clicking your blog name in the top-left corner
  3. Hover over the post
  4. Click Pin

That's it! You'll see a link to that post from every page on your blog.
