floating of blog posts

I cannot find how to float a single blog post in order to have the three Community Challenge teasers displayed in the contrary order on the Community page: I want to have the first challenge on top as the big one (now there is number 3 on top because it was uploaded last).


Two questions:

1. Is floating of single posts generally possible in the blogs?

2. If yes, does this have an effect on the teaser feature on the Community Challenge or does this teaser feature only react on the uploading date? If the latter is the case I would need to upload the posts all again in the contrary order.

Hi Hitsch,


It's not possible to "float" a blog post the same way you would a forum topic. However, you can "feature" a blog post. This will display in the designated component for featured content.

This may be a bug in our site only perhaps but we found that if a Forum post is moved into the Blog, if the post was floated prior to being moved to the blog it will remain floated, with no option to unfloat.

For some, this might be their desired state over using Featured Articles. 

To unfloat if desired however, you must move it back to a Forum area, unfloat, then move it back into the Blog. My guess is since the content type changes the menus being shown are different., and since floating isn't common to Blogs, the option isnt' shown in the menu. 

Bandwidth permitting I'll submit a ticket - there should be a warning in place to inform the user moving the forum post that it needs to be unfloated first.
