New links to custom (Popular Downloads) page.

Post#1 by tim » 29 May 2017, 18:09


It's a hack a little of a page but it works and I think it'll provide users to access quickly which are popular downloads which might be of their interests when they're new to the forum.
It's the pop_downloads.php (You can also find this link on top of forum where it says Popular: Downloads.
It's in decending order of # of downloads of attachments that aren't images.
This also encourages people to share scripts, tutorials (unless it's text tutorial), and resource files in form of attachments on our forum.

I like the fact that you could easily see all the popular attachments on top...with links that'll take you to that specific post.
It's a way to quickly expose our popular stuff to new users.

You can click on one of these 6 links (shown highlighted) to get Popular/Unpopular Topics/Downloads/Images

Now you can view Popular Topics, Popular Downloads, Popular Images(attachments).
As well as Unpopular Topics, Unpopular Downloads, Unpopular Images as they might be possibly hidden gems that got forgotten.
You can find find these links just below the "Topics: Active | Unanswered | Random" line.

I have defaulted them to show only for top 100 as that should be good enough for most cases when you're looking for most popular/unpopular topics/downloads/images.
But at the bottom of the 100, there's a link that says "View all(if more than 100 results)".
If you click on that link it'll show the page with all possible results.

Just added Popular/Unpopular (DLs divided by Views[Topic Views]) pages to see which scripts/resources people are most/least interested in.

IMO that's not useful; why? Because having the threads with something new added a different colour anyone clicks and sees, even if the thread is of less interest for her/him, just to remove that colour....
