How're "hottest topics" determined?

Hey folks,

I think I've asked this before but couldn't seem to find the original post (it was long ago, and I don't think I got an answer, so bear with me).

Anyway, I was wondering what classifies a topic as 'hot'? Is it determined by the number of replies, or the number of visits, or a combination of both?

Thanks for any help!
- Jay

This is defined by the TopicModel.selectHottestTopicsByLimit query. This defaults to the topics with the most views.

FWIW, you can redefine this by changing the query definition in your <database type>.sql file.
