This is probably too small to qualify has a hack but i've seen one or two posts looking for it. This finds the most popular thread on the board.

Open index.php and before

then below that add the following

save index.php and upload.

Then within the control panel click add templates.

Template name is popular_thread
and the code should be this

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Then in either of your forumhome templates place $popularthread and the text "Most populat thread is THREADTITLE"
the threadtitle will be a link to the title.

Are you getting any error messages at all?

i've installed it twice on other boards and it worked fine. Another person pasted in both lines for getting most popular. Ie the one for popular by reply and the popular by views. Make sure you only paste one of them in.

Not a bad idea but I think I'll skip this one. The one weakness to the linear style bulletin board is that once you go beyond one page it's much harder to read and manage than threaded bbs'es or some other style bbs'es (it does exist). On my board this would just encourage people to make those monster threads even more unmanageable.

or are you wishing to call it via SSI.

I would prefer a ssi call, but I can make the page php if I need to.

simpliest way is if the page is php


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

then just place $popular somewhere on your page and it will say like
Most popular thread is Some Title Here and the title will be a link to the thread.

That did it.

Now, how could I have it include the top 5 most popular??

I want to have a box on my front page with the top 5 threads.

thanks
