I am totally new to PHP, but have been actively hosting or creating blogs and HTML based websites for the past 2 to 3 years.
Besides having a few requests (which I'll start a discussion separately for each), how would one create a "vote-it-to-the-front-page" extension or add-on similiar to Digg.com
? For those unfamiliar with Digg, users are contiually submitting news and information and other users can vote "yay" or "nay" for the posting. Those postings that reach the minumum threshold limit and a beat-out all the other posts make it to the frontpage.
I am looking for something like this, where the admin can control the number of top-voted discussions to appear on the mainpage that loads when you go to the forum. As well, the admin would have to be able to set the threshold (i.e. when you have 15 votes you get thrown in the pool to make it on the frontpage).
I think this method of displaying top discussions would be powerful and make the site more interactive.
Does anyone out think they can help a beginner or even program an extension to meet these requirements?
Thank you in advance for any help.
