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

Yup

Code: [Select]
$request = my_db_query("
SELECT ms.ID_MOD, ms.modName, ms.modifiedTime, ms.short_desc, COUNT(lm.ID_MOD) AS recentDownloads, ms.submitTime,
(COUNT(lm.ID_MOD)/$popDays) + ms.rating AS score
FROM {$mod_prefix}mods AS ms
        LEFT JOIN {$mod_prefix}log_mods AS lm ON (lm.ID_MOD = ms.ID_MOD)
WHERE ms.approved = 1
AND ms.downloads > 0
GROUP BY ID_MOD
ORDER BY score DESC
LIMIT 5", __FILE__, __LINE__);

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..

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?

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.

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.

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.

Code: [Select]
// 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'])),
)
);
}

EDIT:  Forgot link
http://mods.simplemachines.org/area51/jaybachatero/index.php

Bloc I can update the theme site files and hand them over to Mike.

Can you show a screenshot?

Also I was thinking of maybe changing the PM on new Review and make it show you the actual review instead of a link to the review.  This is the current PM

RBH has left a review for Global Announcements mod.  Click here to see the review.

Sure, why not? Maybe show the review and link to it aswell. I would suggest even doing a preview of the review, except reviews aren't normally very long!
