[SOLVED] Select "popular" topics only


Recommended Posts

I need to do soemthing like this.


SELECT * FROM topics ORDER BY replies/date LIMIT 10;


I want to get the top 10 "popular" topics from my forums. I define popular as the total number of replies divided by time elapsed since the topic was created.



date (date) (date topic was posted)

replies (mediumint) (total number of replies)



Will I have to do math in PHP to get the number of days (or minutes or seconds) passed since the date? That could get bad if I actually ever get a lot of forums.
