Topic "On Fire"

Hi all,

I'd love to see a plugin that marks topics by views or discussions as "on fire" displaying a icon next to the title of the thread or somewhere else. Settings could just allow the amount of views or postings in a thread to display the icon.

Shouldn't be too difficult, maybe some plugin-developer picks it up.

    While reading through my old started discussions i came across this thread.

    Does anyone know a "On Fire" plugin like this. I just searched again to the plugin repository to see if i have overseen a plugin like this in recent years.

    It would be interesting to load a specific CSS or a picture on basis of a certain rule to a disucssion in the discussion list.

      Rules could be like:
    • Discussion has X comments > show image/add css
    • Discussion has X participants > show image/add css
    • Discussion has not been updated for X days > show image/add css

    You might have better ideas.

    Hot threads by business dad might be extended to support that.

    it would be rather simple to implement

    just copy the view over to your theme and put two statements in the helper functions.php probably.

    if countComment add a span.

    add a css rule to put a background image.

    or

    you could most likely change the rolbadge plugin pretty simply or even indexphotos/

    I haven't looked at this but it probably has tons of useful features with settings options.

    modify the helper functions or your own custom plugin - would just be the self-help way.

    There is discussion image plugin puts image from discussion in index,

    The stats box plugin could be modified to show image, by putting the last commenters avatar up.

    I do not really care if a discussion has not been updated , I can see the date and know since when, and if someone updates it it simply rises to the top again. :)

    A more "interesting topic on fire" plugin would be for the an animated gif of a fire replacing the discussion box followed by gray and black ashes descending like snowflakes on discussions below and scorch marks on discussions above followed by discussion deletion after the fire consumed it all.

    skills needed: javascript, php, css, animated gif creation.

    However I have a more creative use for pyro , how about using snowstorm and making a firestorm or even an explosion storm !!

    I used this as a hover over effect on links, looks pretty cool

    Firestorm
