Title: Request: Top topics by number of views
Post by: jernatety on September 03, 2018, 10:20:14 AM
I currently have my top topics list block on the right side bar, but it's html I wrote. Is there a code I could use instead that allows me to select the number of top topics by number of views? And it automatically updates when a newer one with a lot of views shows up?

Thanks!

You could use SSI.  Stick this in a php block, though you might want to try and style it as necessary

Code: [Select]
ssi_topTopicsViews();

Hi Mick, what is SSI? And is there any way to limit the number of top topics? That is what I want though, I just tested it.

Hi Mick, what is SSI?

They are functions built right into SMF for you to use. ;) https://www.simplemachines.org/community/ssi_examples.php

Click throught the menu on the left of that page and it will show examples of the output.

Change the 5 to whatever amount of top topic you want.
Code: [Select]
ssi_topTopicsViews(5);
