08-31-2006, 11:52 PM
My site doesn't get a ton a traffic but even still... I'd like to create a page on my web site called "Most Commented". I want it very similar to how it is in this site: http://www.kulayphotography.com/blog/
How do I do this? Please email me at email@example.com

You can also install the meta categories addon, that gives you most/last commented, most/last viewed and a tagcloud. :rolleyes:

I've downloaded the file and installed it into the addon file. I can see it when I log into the Site Administrator. Now what? Do I need to create a new html page? I know I need to use the <MOST_COMMENTED> tag but I don't fully understand what that means. I'm a total hack at web sites so forgive my ignorance.

Create another page (maybe copy your about page then mod to suit) and then insert the <most_commented> tag. Basically this just does a call from the database on most commented images.
You will also need to put a link to this new page unless you want to keep it to yourself.
You also need to copy the php file into the ..\addons folder on your server (you have already done this step)

Okay, thanks for the response. I've copied the about page and modified it to include the <most_commented> tag. Now I'm trying to create a link and I've done this:
<a href="index.php" title="Return to Homepage">Home</a> |
<a href="<SITE_BROWSELINK>" title="Browse">Browse</a> |
<a href="mostcomm" title="">Most Commented</a> |
<a href="index.php?x=about" title="About">About</a>
but it doesn't work. What do I put for "mostcomm" that will line to this page?

Also, I can't even load up the file I created called "mostcomm.html" ?? I don't even know if it works but I put it in the directory "simple" with all the other files like "about_template.html". Again, sorry for my extreme ignorance on ths stuff and thanks for your help(s)!!

rename the mostcomm.html to mostcomm_template.html

If you do what Vernon suggest change the link to:
<a href="index.php?x=mostcomm" title="">Most Commented</a>
