Most read/emailed articles

Postby akhi003 » Wed Nov 30, 2005 3:07 pm

Does anyone know if there is a way to implement a Top 10 list of the most read or most emailed articles? I think as more articles/newsletters are on the site then this would be nice to see what most people are checking out.

Please let me know if there is something that is already available similar to this.

Hi Nabeel,

Article view counts are being stored in the database, but there's currently nothing included in OJS to display a top-10 type list using those counts. Feel free to submit patches to the development forum if you write something on your own, and it may be incorporated into the next release.

Note that one of the major changes to the forthcoming OJS 2.1 release is a plugin infrastructure; this will make it easier to customize your installation without modifying the core codebase, and will allow easy distribution of community contributions to OJS. If you're curious, take a look at the OJS CVS repository. (Directions are available in the distribution in docs/README-CVS.)
