Replicating CNN's "Hot Topics" (Not Popular Posts) (2 posts)

    So I've found a plethora of "popular posts" plugins, but what about those of us who want to display popular categories? CNN calls it "hot topics". I'd love for it to be dynamic instead of a manual change. Any ideas or plugins out there that we can tweak to get this to work?

    I think you'd first need to define what criteria would be needed to grade categories as "hot", "warm" or "not so hot". Would it be based on the number of posts in each category? Or the total number of comments across all posts in a category? Or something completely different?
