Well it all started when I first thought of modifying the updown voting plugin to suit my needs. I wrote the script perfectly, but when I tested it, it literally did nothing. So my question here is: if the updown voting and voting plugins are disabled, how are the posts classified as latest, upcoming and popular? i.e: the updown voting plugin sends the post to the popular page if a certain number of +votes is attended. 2- I managed to find out that post_status variable is responsible of the posts location(latest, upcoming, popular) where popular is used as "top". what are the other alias for latest, upcoming...? 3- After submitting the post, which plugin is responsible(if updown voting is disabled) of sending the post to upcoming and then to popular? Thank you very much in advance and please care to answer my questions ASAP.
