    Howto Display most Popular posts?

    hello guys,

    i want to create macro that display the most commented posts (the most popular, only the top 5).

    i know how to count comments for posts:

     <xsl:variable name="numberofcomments" select="count(BlogLibrary:GetCommentsForPost($post/@id)//comment)"/>

    i know how to loop on 5 posts:

    <ul id="popular-posts">
         <xsl:for-each select="$currentPage/ancestor-or-self::node//node [string(data [@alias='umbracoNaviHide']) != '1' and @nodeTypeAlias='BlogPost']">
            <xsl:sort select="@createDate" order="descending" />
            <xsl:if test="position()&lt;= 5">
                      <li>
                    <xsl:variable name="text" select="umbraco.library:StripHtml(./data[@alias='bodyHeader'])" />           
                    <a href="{umbraco.library:NiceUrl(@id)}"><xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:TruncateString($text,50,'...')" disable-output-escaping="yes"/></a>
                </li>                            
                </xsl:if>          
        </xsl:for-each>
    </ul>

    but i dont know how to connect the dots..

    Thanks!

    Hi eran,

    You should be able to just use the number of comments as the sort option:

    <xsl:sort select="count(BlogLibrary:GetCommentsForPost(@id)//comment)" data-type="number" order="descending" />

    EDIT 2013-10-04: Added the data-type attribute which is needed to get the sorting correct.

    Can you please share your final solution to this? I am also trying to get this to work on my blog.

    @Alexandru I've updated my answer to include the missing data-type attribute
