Support » Plugins » WP-MostCommentedPosts – hack

  • Hi, I’d like to adapt the WP-MostCommentedPosts plugin (
    This plugin counts the number of comments per post and displays the top ranking posts.

    I’d like to adapt that so I can grab the most commented posts per any category ID specified.

    The plugin code:

    function get_mostcommented($limit = 10) {
    global $wpdb, $post;
    $mostcommenteds = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT $wpdb->posts.ID, post_title, post_name, post_date, COUNT($wpdb->comments.comment_post_ID) AS 'comment_total' FROM $wpdb->posts LEFT JOIN $wpdb->comments ON $wpdb->posts.ID = $wpdb->comments.comment_post_ID WHERE comment_approved = '1' AND post_date_gmt < '".gmdate("Y-m-d H:i:s")."' AND post_status = 'publish' AND post_password = '' GROUP BY $wpdb->comments.comment_post_ID ORDER BY comment_total DESC LIMIT $limit");
    foreach ($mostcommenteds as $post) {
    $post_title = htmlspecialchars(stripslashes($post->post_title));
    $comment_total = (int) $post->comment_total;
    echo "<li>&raquo <a href=\"".get_permalink()."\">$post_title</a> - $comment_total </li>";

    Can anyone help?
