I just was thinking maybe a page with the top rated mod or the mods that are the most downloaded.

$request = my_db_query("
SELECT ms.ID_MOD, ms.modName, ms.modifiedTime, ms.short_desc, COUNT(lm.ID_MOD) AS recentDownloads, ms.submitTime,
(COUNT(lm.ID_MOD)/$popDays) + ms.rating AS score

the only problem with most popular is that it always seems to be the same ones :/ that female avatar hasn't budged from first place, and neither has the ad mod for months..

JayBachatero

Umm I'll see what I can do then.  But how would you show these mods?  Maybe have a stats page for most downloaded, highest rating and so on like stats page?  Also mod developer with most mods.

If they are constantly being downloaded or have a high positive feedback doesn't that make them the most popular?

*shurgs* you are right.

I just find it boring.. i hardly look at the top5 anymore cause it doesn't change

Maybe we should have another listing for the last few mods downloaded?

I would say 5 latest and 5 top is the way to go. Although you might have to juggle the page a bit for both to go in. I suggest moving "Getting started" under below and put  5 top and 5 latest boxes on the right.

This could really be good for Themes site as well. If you implement it, i would love to see the same there.

JayBachatero

Umm about about latest 5 mods and put it right next to the featured mod and move the "Mod developers" down.

What do you guys think of adding something like this.

Não seria interessante links com os mods separados por versões?

MODIFICAÇÕES PARA:
1.0.x | 1.1 RC1 | 1.1 RC2 | 1.1 RC3

Would not be interesting links with mods separate for versions?

MODIFICATIONS FOR:
1.0.x | 1.1 RC1 | 1.1 RC2 | 1.1 RC3

(english provided by google... kkkkk sorry!)

It's easy to do too.
SMF 1.1 RC3 | SMF 1.1 RC2 | SMF 1.0.8

That can work too. Might be better as then the importance of top 5 seems greater.

Version quick-links looks great.

JayBachatero

Um where would be the best place to add the Version quick-links?

Well on the details page for sure ;)

JayBachatero

Details page?  If they in the mod they can see the version there :P.  I was thinking somewhere in the list page (main page).

Ok added the "Latest Mods" section.  I stored it to cache also.

Also I added a cache time setting.  I set that to a day 86400 secs.


// Get the latest 5 mods but only if the cache is older than 24 hours
if (isset($modSettings['latest_mods_cache']) && (time() - $modSettings['latest_mods_cache_time'] < $mod_site['cache_time']))
{
$context['latest_mods'] = @unserialize($modSettings['latest_mods_cache']);
}
else
{
$context['latest_mods'] = array();

// Select the info from the db
$latestModsSelect = db_query("
SELECT ID_MOD, modName, short_desc, downloads
FROM {$db_prefix}mods
WHERE approved = 1
ORDER BY ID_MOD DESC
LIMIT 5", __FILE__, __LINE__);

while ($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($latestModsSelect))
{
$context['latest_mods'][$row['ID_MOD']] = array(
'id' => $row['ID_MOD'],
'name' => $row['modName'],
'short_name' => $func['strlen']($row['modName']) <= 20 ? $row['modName'] : $func['substr']($row['modName'], 0, 20) . '...',
'short_desc' => $row['short_desc'],
'href' => $context['script'] . '?mod=' . $row['ID_MOD'],
);
}
mysql_free_result($latestModsSelect);

// Store in the cache
updateSettings(
array(
'latest_mods_cache_time' => time(),
'latest_mods_cache' => addslashes(serialize($context['latest_mods'])),
)
);
}
