But can't we have the last 7 days top picks or something?


Well the last 7 days would be a repat of the front page to a large degree.

Is "Most Popular" that important on the front page?

Dunno, but how are we going to index the articles, there's quite a lot in the pipeline.

Not sure I see the problem?

We could actually have a page dedicated to most popular of all time. That is not a problem.

New articles would continue to get front page space.

The Editor would once a week or so, rearrange the "Editors Picks" which would replace Most Popular.

The Forum would continue to show "Latest Articles".

We would help the editor by taking a snapshot once a week of the figures and hence if a picked article showed poorly the following week it would be a good candiadate for dropping etc.

That's one way. Isn't there a simple mechanism by which total hits could be replaced by, say, hits per month? So that an articles total hits is divided by how long it's been there to give it a score?

Or is that a bugger to do?

I am sure I could do this, and if this is the consensus I will get it done. But that in of itself would not solve the seasonailty issue which is quite important to the forum.
