Top posts in Wordpress sidebar via embed vanilla?

edited July 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Here is what I would like to do:

Have a sidebar list in a wordpress blog of vanilla forum posts that I (the forum mod) deem as a top post.

How would I do this?

(1) I could use embed vanilla and create a special category called "top posts", but that means moving the post out of its proper category and into the "top posts" category. Is it possible to have a post in two categories at the same time?

(2) Is it possible to add a tag and search on it?

I've already modded the embed vanilla plugin and added an ability to do a search on text in a post . An example can be seen here: . The link at the bottom that says "Click here to comment on this story in the forum" is actually a wordpress shortcode [vf_get_link search="pidwwwnerds4caincom418"], so I could probably do the mod. But I'm not sure how to do the search via the API on a tag.

If so, is it possible to restrict the usage of a specific tag to only the moderator?

(3) Any other suggestions on how to get this list?

    search on tag and owner...

    oops, scratch that, I was thinking this was a wp plugin... not vanilla api. Sorry, too many hours in wp.

    Maybe its time for a quick, "How to write an API" article?
