RapidTabs Popular Calculation

Recommended Posts


As a follow up to this comment thread, I'd like to suggest an enhancement to RapidTabs Popular tab. Currently, Popular is calculated using Comment count. And it seems to be using total comment count since the beginning of time.  It would be very nice to have two options added:


  • Choose Page Views or Comments as the metric
  • Add a function to choose recency, e.g., Yesterday, Last Week, All Time ... or ... [#] Days

      Am upgrading a site made in DMS2 to Pl5. Have run into several snags I didn't anticipate from DMS sections the client liked and was used to in DMS not being available in Pl5.
      Currently trying to recreate the "Columnizer" I used for the footer in cassClayton.com. Using the "sitemap footer" section, however that gives options for 3 menus plus a text ares (plus some socials and copyright text). Well I need the second 2 columns to NOT be menus, but rather the latest Posts and Comments.
      Will appreciate some leads how to make this happen. Perhaps there is a different footer section that's ideal for this? Or should I simply drag a couple Container sections and Text sections to do this?  Also, kindly point me to a reference for shortcodes for "recent posts" and "comments".
      Also, I loved the "RapidTabs" section for sidebars. Is there a replacement for that? Again, I need to find shortcodes for posts/comments, so any leads are much appreciated.
      Oh, you can check out the new (PL5 version) of the site underdevelopment at https://cassclayton.com/upgrade/

      My client is asking how does DMS rate what post is most popular? She says that several others have been liked more. I understand that social media likes probably won't count of course. But does DMS just count the views somehow?

      I would like to tweak the rapidtabs section and I don't really know where to begin.
      Currently rapid tabs defaults to 4 views/tabs: popular posts, recent, comments and tags.
      I would like to hide/eliminate the popular posts tab so there are only 3 left.
      Can someone tell me how to code that and where to put it? Thanks :-)

      I'm trying to remove RapidTabs from my Sidebar.   I've removed it from the my Primary Sidebar under Widgets, and also from the main page sidebar but it seems to appear in every single post.  Isn't there a way to just remove it from all sidebars in all posts?

      Do you know if it's possible to hide the tags in rapidtabs ?
