Popular Discussion Badge

MIT license Latest Stable Version Total Downloads Donate

Adds a "popular" badge to discussions based on custom criteria.

The extension can be used in two main "modes":

Frontend mode

This mode verifies the badge conditions client-side against the information the current user can see. The database column is not used at all.

In Frontend mode, the following criteria are available:

  • Number of comments
  • Number of views

The number of views is not computed by this extension. It requires either michaelbelgium/flarum-discussion-views or flarumite/simple-discussion-views.

Scheduler mode

This mode makes use of a CRON job to update the discussion status. See this thread on how to configure the Flarum scheduler in your crontab

You can configure the frequency of the update through the extension settings.

In Scheduler mode, the following criteria are available:

  • Number of comments
  • Timeframe for the number of comments (in n last hours, leave empty for the total)
  • Number of views
  • Timeframe for the number of views (in n last hours, leave empty for the total)

The number of views is not computed by this extension. It requires either michaelbelgium/flarum-discussion-views or flarumite/simple-discussion-views.

It's only possible to time-constraint the views of michaelbelgium/flarum-discussion-views. Setting a views timeframe while using the Flarumite views extensions will result in an error.

Installation

composer require clarkwinkelmann/flarum-ext-popular-discussion-badge

Support

This extension is under minimal maintenance.

It was developed for a client and released as open-source for the benefit of the community. I might publish simple bugfixes or compatibility updates for free.

You can contact me to sponsor additional features or updates.

Support is offered on a "best effort" basis through the Flarum community thread.
