012 - Create a module listing the most popular articles.

Postby Kevin8020 » Fri Dec 14, 2007 1:25 am

Kevin back again, taking on task #12

Quoting the Original GHOP Issue,

Create a module listing the most popular articles.
Describe the task.

Create a module modeled after mod_mostread that displays the top N articles
from a specific set of sections and categories with the highest rating.


Not much to say... should be done with this one quickly!

Google Task

Task claimed: Dec 12 Due: Jan 2

[me=AmyStephen]Changed subject slightly for sorting all threads to match against Google resource  :)[/me]

Alright, this one was a bit easier... because I could do an installer instead of a zip-thing...

Package attached. If someone could confirm that the installer works and the articles show up, that would be great :)

Kevin - works perfectly - looks great - it's a great social networking piece - it's going to see some action.

I'll get a second judge's opinion on this and see if we can cut you loose.

Now, if you choose to take another task, I hope your eyes fall towards the bottom of the list where you will notice the word "Advanced." ;)

Let's see what you got, hmm?

You do good work. I accept this task as complete. Thanks for your contributions to the Joomla! community!

Amy :)

I'm going to go scan the list for my next task... haha. Thanks :)

Also, I went ahead and registered this as a JoomlaCode project just for fun.

Oh, by the way, I've been meaning to ask you: exactly what is "extra credit?"

A factor in determining the overall winner. Going beyond expectation. That kind of thing.  :pop
