We’ve had a hard time configuring the ‘Top’ view of our discourse site due to this setting:
Basically, it defines how many topics are displayed under /top - which works fine if your default top timeframe is a year or month. But if you, like us, want to display top posts this week - it is very difficult to actually tweak this number.
If there are not 15 topics created within the last week - the top view will automatically switch from top topics this week to top topics this month to populate the /top list with 15 items. This is problematic for us, since we want the top page to be our landing page, and we don’t want users to suddenly land on a monthly view - especially not if there are 14 great topics created this week.
In addition, it only shows 15 topics in that view - no less - no more. It is impossible for us to tell if we will have 10 topics one week or 15 another.
Please change the above setting and break it out into these two settings
This will enable admins to specify and min. number of topics for the selected top timeframe, but also be able to define if the list should be limited to a max number of topics or simply contain all the topics created in the specified timeframe.
