Add some descriptive text – how?

    Hi,

    When I created my forum menu, I used the permalink i.e /forum

    Now I find I would like to add some preface instructions to give my users (especially casual posters) some informative instructions on how to post. How to do this is often lost on people wanting to post first time questions.

    Is there a way to do this? Can I convert from the permalink to an actual Page with a shortcode and still keep the same URLs / permalink setup I have now?

    Clues?

    You can write a post and pin it to the top, like JJJ does on these forums (and is generally the accepted norm on most forums)

    If you want the instructions to be upfront (and if they are short enough), you might want to try putting them in the description of a forum.

    I actually would prefer to add some placeholder test between the Forum Title and the breadcrumbs.

    Any ideas where this stuff is output?

    The unfortunate part is it’s likely to be overwritten on any and all plugin updates though.
