Filtering/ searching in forum topics?

  • Again, not sure why. This seems like either a personal project or a way to extract some data value.

    I could see some wider value in showing popular items in a particular area, or highly popular, but scripts are often copy/pasted, so we don't really have a download count.

  • We need a reference value to see which scripts has a high popularity because we didnt want to search in more than

    thousand scripts.

    We only want the scripts with highly popularity to see if this important for our company.

    All I can say is... be really, REALLY careful with that.  Some of the most highly "visited" articles on the internet are flat out wrong in a whole lot of areas.  Even supposed "holy grail" articles complete with test data, performance testing, and a shedload of graphs are frequently incorrect because of the use of things like extremely low cardinality test data and more.  Be especially careful when you see the "Comments are Closed" markers and when people use GO N and other forms of RBAR to create their test data.

    If you're truly have issues with some things, remember the following...

    ... and there are a whole lot of amateurs that publish professional looking solutions that are totally wrong.  Even the MS documentation has some serious issues in that area.

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.
    "Change is inevitable... change for the better is not".
