I am in the process of building a custom theme with a custom menu. I have just about all of the menu items that I need working except for setting and removing Sticky tags on forum posts.

I have tried two different menu macros, these:

{menuitem}{menuicon:pin_blue}{menulink:forum-sticky}Add Sticky...{menulink}{menuitem}

{compound-menuitem:set-sticky|caption=Set sticky topic}

that I found by searching here. Neither one is working. Whether I am just viewing or editing a topic, the Sticky menu items do not appear on the menu.

Anyone know what I can do to get this to work?

      Yes, the forum features are enabled.

        What privileges do you have in the space? In Space Admin there's a setting that determines who can set sticky topics.

        Also, did you add the aliases (set-sticky, forum-sticky) in Theme Builder admin Menulink Aliases Tab?

          When I click on that tab, there are no plugins in the drop-down. We have several dozen plugins isntalled but none show.

    I have the pinning option working as described above, but I cannot get the icons to work. Any suggestions? Here is what I have:

    {compound-menuitem:remove-sticky|icon=pin_gray|tooltip=remove sticky

      You might try spelling the second one "pin_grey". That's the way I have it and I don't know if both spellings work.

      1. Yep, it's always worth using the correct spelling of a word! See: wikipedia
