>                 Key: ROL-1786
>                 URL:
>             Project: Roller
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Database Access & Data Model, Page Rendering & Management,
Planet Aggregator, Theme specific, Weblog Editor
>    Affects Versions: 4.0.1
>            Reporter: Manos Batsis

> Currently roller includes basic "Pin to Main" functionality. We did a project that required
the ability to create named pins, without disrupting the existing "Pin to Main" stuff.  This
allows us to:
> 1) pin posts to specific places in the main (or any other) page that has access to the
site model.
> 2) preserve compatibility with the existing "Pin to Main" for generic bulletin board
style pins.
> I'm attaching a rough patch for review. If you are interested in eventually adding this
to the trunk, I would be happy to make any corrections/additions etc and help with this. Our
implementation only covers JPA/MySQL. Bellow you can find an example of how we use this in
our main page (i.e. a modified version of main's Weblog.vm), I'm adding this cause the patch
does not include modifications to main, as this requires some effort from my part right now:
> #set($pinMap = $site.getNamedPinEntryMap(5))
> <tr>
>   <td class="named-pin" id="named-pin1" colspan="6">
>     #set($namedPinEntry = $pinMap.namedPin1)
>     <h2>
>       <a class="named-pin-title" href="$utils.escapeHTML($namedPinEntry.permalink)">
>         $utils.truncateNicely($utils.removeHTML($namedPinEntry.title), 50, 50, "...")
>       </a>
>     </h2>
>     <p class="named-pin-content">                    
>       $utils.escapeHTML($namedPinEntry.summary)
>       <a class="named-pin-more" href="$utils.escapeHTML($namedPinEntry.permalink)">
>        
>       </a>
>     </p>
>   </td>
> </tr>
