    Currently I'm using popular-contest plugin which can display the 10 most popular posts of my blog.

    Well, I wonder if there is any plugin to display the 10 LESS popular posts.

    I think it would be a good way to keep old posts alive. Is there any plugin?

    Why not just use the same plugin and change the SQL to pull out the bottom ten?

    if you post a link to teh plugin you're talking about, that's probably somehting that would take two seconds to change.

    Hi drmike, thanks for your response;

    "Why not just use the same plugin and change the SQL to pull out the bottom ten?"

    -> because I don't know how to do that, but it seems a very good idea.

    "if you post a link to teh plugin you're talking about, that's probably somehting that would take two seconds to change."

    -> here it is; http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/popularity-contest/

    Popularity Contest by Alex King. Perhaps the code is too complex for modifiying.

    Thnaks. URL grabbed. I'll see if I can come up with something this weekend. I'm on a locked down terminal today.

    You may want to check out that random post plugin that's overe there. Something to think about.

    -> Yes, I'll do, thanks drmike :) Another idea to keep old post alive is by including a one year ago post; one year ago we wrote; the post..."

    I tried time capsule plugin but it didn't work as I expected because it searches one year ago posts in a daily basis and I write posts weekly.

    I'm going to read the codex and perhaps I can do anything with query_posts function :)

    For displaying a one year ago post there is a very good plugin which is listed in the codex -> http://www.lamateporunyogur.net/wp-plugins/one-year-ago/#english
