I would like to create a new page that orders the posts by popularity. All of the algorithms currently available only order the posts by comments or by wordpress stats. Rather than order the posts by views, I would like to order my posts based on "likes."
I currently have the I like this plugin installed and I would like to use this data in order to create a popular posts page. Unfortunately I am not very versed in php so I am having trouble writing a function to use the "I like this" data to display the posts on a new popular.php page.
Has anyone already done this? Or if not can anyone give me any pointers?
Also the I like this plugin does have a widget to display the most "liked" posts in the sidebar but it only displays the title and not an excerpt. My posts dont have titles so its inneffective. If anyone knows a solution to this problem, it would be an alternative to creating a whole new page.
