Creating a ranking of forum posts/topics by popularity

Post by guitarplayer »

This forum a goldmine of information and high quality insights! When I find something of such sort, I can sometimes become a bit obsessed in wanting to go through it all. But there is just too much! I have go no time left to read books anymore.

Is there/could there be a ranking of forum posts/topics by views/day (popularity)? I know, the most popular does not have to be the most insightful. But I think on this particular forum it just might be a lot of the time!

Or maybe such function could be added in the search engine? Sort by views/day.

This forum uses a software called phpbb, which is an open-source system written in php. Jacob, the owner, just uses it, he does not produces it nor changes it. If you are interested enough, you should head over to phpbb.org and try to convince people there. They will probably tell you to program this feature yourself and submit the code for review, or to pay someone else to do so.
