Distinguish "information" posts from questions

Andrew Neil

There's a lot of "information" posts appearing; eg,

https://community.st.com/t5/stm32-mcus/how-to-obtain-and-use-the-stm32-96-bit-uid/ta-p/621443

This is all very good & useful but, in the activity listing, they are indistinguishable from user questions:

It would be useful if these were clearly differentiated.

Hi @Andrew Neil 

We released an update today that marks articles on the front page activity feed with a little "book" logo. 
When hovering over the logo, it states "Knowledge base article." 

This should help distinguish articles from posts, see example below:

Hello @Andrew Neil , 

Thanks for your feedback here. It is a very good point indeed. I will take it to discuss internally how we could distinguish Knowledgebase articles from regular posts. 

If you have any preferences, please share!

Hi @Tesla DeLorean , 

Yes, there is a separate section for it, but on the general activity feed, you can not tell weather a post is a questions or an article.

Really hard to tell that "How to add your spi flash into the STM32CubeProgrammer's External Loader" isn't a question.

Hi @Andrew Neil

These titles are given to be more attractive to search engines. We are working on creating a solution that visually marks the post as an article, just like how a post with a solution has the green checkmark.

Best regards,
