  1. Hi, does anyone know how a post becomes a "popular post". Is it the number of replies or the number of views? And how many of either replies and/or views are required for a post to be labelled "popular"?

    Thanks

  3. Think it might have something to do with the wee stars at the top of the page next to the post title; where it says rate this post. This would explain why some posts which have no replies have been rated, obviously the poster wanted to alert people to their "importance" (ahem!)

  4. Hi
    I can answer that. The settings are as follows:
    Popular Post Replies 200 (how many posts required)
    Popular Posts Views 1000 (how many views required)
    Popular Posts Age (In Days) 7 (days posts must be active within)
    With the above criteria, a thread is deemed popular.
