Anyone here have any good ideas for how to go about a page-ranking
recipe in PmWiki?
We've opened up all kinds of new and wonderful datastoring
techniques. I'm wondering if there are any good techniques for page-
popularity votes and coming up with a "favorite" page?
There are a couple voting/ranking recipes, but they don't quite
fulfill my desires. They may also be outdated if their data storage
techniques can be updated.
We have a new invisible page data format:
(:Xyz: some value:) # directive form
We have PM coming up with an "I can append but I can't edit"
We could require people to be logged in and do something like:
-- only to store the data. How it looks on the voting end is far
more arbitrary. A simple wiki form of any type with action=ranking
hidden variable could do it. I can customize the code to get the
data stored on the page. I'm just wondering how to best handle it.
Every time the page updates it calculates an "average rank" page
Formula can be something like
total (each Rank * 1000) / number of votes (comes up with a whole
number rather than floating point, and makes it a bit easer to sort)
Then it's a matter of a pagelist that figures out which page is most
The form can be easily made unavailable if the user has already voted
on a particular page, since their $Author name is in the variable
name. Or it can be arranged that they can change their vote, but
only one vote per login name.
Should the vote data be on the actual page, on the same page in
another group? It could get long. The (:AverageRank: #### :) could
be on the same page, easing pagerank calculations considerably.
Inquiring minds want to know.

What is your religion? Where are your faithful?
If you are against God, you are against man.
Sade tell me why blood for pleasure?
Pleasure without love?
Is there no longer any feeling in man's Faith?
Sade are you diabolical or divine?
