MarkFL submitted a new resource:

Top Thread Starters Per Forum - Allows you to display a ranked list of thread starters in the forums you set as active.

Overview:

This product will allow you to display a collapsible block containing a ranked list of thread starters in the forums you set as active. The block header displays how many users have started thread in each forum, and then displays those users sorted in descending order by the number of threads they have started in that forum. In the event of a tie, those users are then sorted in ascending order by userid. You can choose to display this block directly below...

Very nice Mark! I sort of wish I could control the width of each column, but regardless, works great!

Oh great St Augustine, is there a way to make this only viewable by specific usergroups? (thinking to start it as a staff only type thing(I know I could probably add the check myself but thought I'd ask in case others like the idea)(if you don't think it's worth doing, that's fine(I understand))))

Mark, what I'm seeing is that I can adjust the 'width' of the module, but the individual columns stay the same width. I.e...increasing the width of the entire module doesn't spread the columns out for me, it just results in the same relative column width with a bunch of blank unused space to the right. I can do some images if that's helpful.

I will add that as an option soon. It sounds like it would be useful. :)

All of the columns except for the rightmost are only as wide as they need to be, with the remaining space taken by the rightmost column. I will see what I can so to get them to spread out. :)

Don't go to any major trouble - it works great! I'd like to be able to show more of the thread title. I thought when I widened the module, it would expand the area allowed for the thread title, but it's not set up that way. At first I thought the allowable width was cutting off the last column header (which I thought would be 'Total Threads'), but looks like you decided just to have one header for the two right most columns ('Percentage of Total Threads').

If you want to take a crack at making the thread title characters allowed modifiable, that's great, but don't feel obligated!

I agree the CSS isn't ideal, and giving support includes implementing good suggestions. :)

Hey St Aug., sorry to be a pain in the sainthood but would it be possible to allow a manual insertion option ? I have a customised style (probably broke some things) and the locations interfere rather than sit nicely in the positions that they take up.

Tanx! :)

That won't be hard to do...I will look into that tonight. :)
