What I think would be a good change for the Hottest Threads box is to display the threads with the most posts recently (in the past day or week or something.)
interesting idea... and probably possible to do.

Wow, I wish I had known about SuperView a lot earlier. How can I get to that without coming to this thread to find the link? This is definitely not a feature that should be hard to access.
long story. Super Thread View is not a normal part of the PHP-Fusion software, it's something that i wrote to fulfill a selfish need. in the beginning i was worried about how much Database load the page would create, and how hard it might be to explain how to use the page. (now i think it's probably the 'easiest on the Database' page on the whole site.
it also still has a major bug... (see the Help
page for terminology.), because of the way that PHP-Fusion handles your "Last Visit" time, the second/third/etc. pages do not work for the since last visit
function of the page. but they do work for the since # hours/days/weeks/months
it was also my very first large chunk of PHP code, and i'm sorta scared to go back and look at it again, i'm sure it's horrible.
anyway... i've just been too busy for the past 9 months or so to do anything constructive for TJP. my work has had me move about 1000 people and hundreds of machines from one building to another building, building an entirely new network along the way.... but the year long project is finally coming to an end and i should have time to do some more heavy TJP stuff... i've said it a hundred of times or so, but i want to move over to better written and easier to modify software. so i'm in bug fix mode, i'll try and fix problems, and maybe make some easy changes (like Newest/Hottest Thread stuff), but i loathe trying to fix things that would take a lot of time and would rather spend the time moving to software that doesn't need to be fixed. (end ranting
there are some more Undocumented Features
on the wiki.
