Implementing Site Pinning

We've added site pinning to several of our sites including Codeguru. In order to see the site pinning, you need to be using Internet Explorer 9 or later. This will allow you to drag and pin an icon to the taskbar. In Windows this pinned icon on the task bar will provide a menu when you click on it.

Clicking the icon will open the Codeguru site in a special browser window.
