You can promote articles in a section to draw attention to them. When you promote an article, it moves to the top of the articles list within its section and is usually given a special visual treatment (for example, a star icon).
Promoted articles always appear at the top of the section, regardless of the sorting option chosen. Promoted articles might also appear by default on the home page, depending on your chosen theme.
To promote an article
Navigate to the article, then click Edit article in the top menu bar.
Click Promote article in the article’s sidebar.
