I’ve made a small tweak to the homepage so that it now shows the most popular (most visited) posts. I might extend this to appear on other pages, or it might just remain on the homepage only. (update – I’ve added it to all pages that show news posts too, in place of the three most recent news posts that previously displayed in that column. This should generally avoid repetition of the same news item on the same webpage).
At the same time as adding the new functionality to show popular posts, I’ve taken the time to make some cosmetic tweaks to the rest of the side column on the homepage to apply the same visual style to images/thumbs.
And I know it’s been a long time again… I must get around to adding some new stuff in the galleries!
