I have an Arduino UNO r3 and am putting a shield on it (motor driver) that uses around 5 pins but obstructs access to all of them. I have noticed that there are holes in front of each pin with a conductive ring around them. Can I solder a wire into a hole and have it act as it is in the pin (Solder a wire to the hole in front of pin 6 to use pin 6)? Has anyone tried it? Thank you for the help!
I have attached a picture to show what I am talking about
