Support » Plugin: Showdown » TOP 10 widget with rating instead of points?

    Hello everyone,

    I am using the plugin hot-or-not on my website and I display the top 10 of competitors via the widget.

    Actually, It displays the competitors by their overall score (cumulative points) and I would find more convenient to have this top ordered by rating (1. xxx 9.5 / 2. xxx 9.3 etc.)

    I tried to change the meta_key from ‘points’ to ‘hot’ but it didn’t work. Do you know if it’s possible to change it?

    Thanks!

    Hi Gruny,

    You can compute the rating by dividing meta_key ‘points’ by meta_key ‘shown’ .. this will give you the rating.

    Hope you’re enjoying the plugin!

    Hi Owen,

    I tried to change that through the showdown_engine.php and showdown_widgets.php but I’m just designer without coding knowledge :/
    Can you give me a boost by saying how can I proceed?

    Thanks!

    Hi Gruny,

    Unfortunately it’s not a trivial thing to accomplish, because the ordering criteria is defined by a single field. I’ve done some research and it seems like we’d have to add another custom field to make it happen:

    How important is this for you? If it is, I’ll see if I can build it into the next version of the plugin.

    Hi Owen,

    Thanks for the link, unfortunally I spent my evening on it without success.
    I will wait for your next release. I really think the top10 based on the rating will be interesting in order to have a more realistic vision. Actually, The first competitors are in top of the ladder (due to the points factor) and it seems impossible for new ones to appear on it.

    Have you an idea when you will have time to implement that?

    Thank you Owen! Have a nice weekend 😉
