what is "best" on the front page?

On the front page of Wizzley one can see wizzles sorted by "most comments" and "most read" which are self-explanatory, but what constitutes "best?" Just curious.

Also, I would love a "newest" button up there on the front page in addition to the other three sort features! I see there is a "newest" button on the subcategory pages, but there are a lot of subcategories I won't open often, so I won't see their newest stuff in the rotation.

Agreed - I like the idea of being able to quickly see Newest articles on the front page.

Best refers to the articles with the highest rankings maybe? Is it those that have the highest views, comments and clickthroughs etc? Just a guess.

In our help page is an explanation as to what "best" means. Look under "What does Wizzley page rank mean?"

I'm not sure I understand the request, though. For one thing, we don't want to display the newest pages on the front page, because they're not always the best. We'd rather shine right away with our top quality, right?

However, the newest articles can be easily seen from the drop-down menu on top.

I'm not sure what you mean with sub-categories. Are we talking about the same page? Am I dense? Undecided

I agree with chef, not everything that gets published may be suitable for our front page. Wink

I guess I meant Topic pages rather than subcategories, like Education. There are buttons there to see "new" "most popular" and "most comments" pages within that topic.

I wouldn't want "newest" to be the default view on the main page (keep that "best" to show off the good stuff) but still it would be nice to have it for an alternate choice. But now I see it IS a choice on the drop-down menu which I had not really noticed before, so you have anticipated my request, which is always nice!
