Display the most commented posts of one year

January 4, 2009 · Print This Article

To get started with new year, what about displaying a list of the 10 most commented posts of 2008 to your readers?

That’s obviously a great way to give a second life to your old posts.

To display a list of your 10 most commented posts from 2008, simply paste the following code on your blog sidebar, or anywhere on your theme:


<h2>Most commented posts from 2008</h2>
$result = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT comment_count,ID,post_title, post_date FROM $wpdb->posts WHERE post_date BETWEEN '2008-01-01' AND '2008-12-31' ORDER BY comment_count DESC LIMIT 0 , 10");

foreach ($result as $topten) {
$postid = $topten->ID;
$title = $topten->post_title;
$commentcount = $topten->comment_count;
if ($commentcount != 0) {
<li><a href="<?php echo get_permalink($postid); ?>"><?php echo $title ?></a></li>
<?php }
