Pligg Support - Where can I find the algorithm that calculates what news item gets to be on the frontpage? http://pligg.com/support/question/where-can-i-find-the-algorithm-that-calculates-what-news-item-gets-to-be-on-the-frontpage/ Where can I find the code that is responsible for the calculations of what news items get to be on the frontpage according to the number of upvotes, submission time and comments? How does it work exactly? Does it reset every 24 hours? Or will a link submitted 3 months ago with the highest number of upvotes still get to be on the frontpage with new link?

If a story get 5 upvotes after 11 days or so, it will not go to the frontpage anymore. The frontpage displays the Published stories by newest submission, meaning the topmost stories are the newest one. However, you can do the filtering by clicking the "Sort" dropdown.]]> Thu, 25 Jul 2013 02:53:32 PDT OxyThemes 2 60
