    Hi,

    Is there a way where I can extend the functionality of built in forum controls so it will be able to support and show the most popular threads?

    Follow up... Like blogpost and news there is view count where I can base the popularity rankings, how will I be able to apply this to forums, forums threads, etc.

    Hi Roland,

    Unfortunately the Forums module is limited when it comes to functionalities like this one. While the News and Blogs items has view count, which are metafields, the Forums module does not. It is not based on the Generic Content architecture, and the metafields approach would not work for it.

    We will provide this functionality in Sitefinity 4.0 though.

    Don't hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

    Kind regards,
    Georgi
