In a nutshell, Best Posts makes your forum useful to a wider audience by making your best content more easily accessible.

One of the largest issues with the standard forum format compared to Reddit-like upvoting is that posts that aren't on the first and last pages of a thread tend to get overlooked. Not an issue for your regular users who are primarily interested in the latest posts, but what about new users?

Best Posts has you covered: the global and per-forum modes allow users to see at a glance the most interesting posts your site has to offer, while the per-thread mode injects new life into your megathreads, release threads, build log threads, etc., where the content readers want is hidden among pages of comments.



  • View the most liked posts across all of your site and filtered by subforum.
  • View the most liked posts in a thread (similar to the feature in vBSEO)
  • Integrates with either standard XF likes, or positive ratings if Post Ratings is installed.
  • Fully integrated with XF - Best Posts pages appear as if they were a normal thread and all standard post controls are available.
  • Context sensitive navbar link (links to best posts of current thread if viewing a thread, etc.)
  • Variety of other links: next to 'Watch Thread/Forum' and as a button next to 'Post New Thread' (all optional)
  • Configurable minimum number of positive ratings/likes for a post to be included.
  • Option to prevent search engine indexing if you would prefer not to expose duplicate content.
  • Built with performance in mind - highly responsive even when sorting against very large numbers of posts and ratings.


The addon can be seen in action on my live forum:


Installation instructions:

  2. Install new addon using addon-BestPosts.xml.


This addon along with lifetime* updates and support can be yours for just £10 GBP:

Instant payment via PayPal:

For Bitcoin or Skrill/Moneybookers alternative payment, please PM me.

The addon zip file and all future updates will be delivered automatically via email immediately after payment.
Please ensure you can receive email to your PayPal registered email address; private message me here if you have any billing-related queries.

*Lifetime updates refers to a single XF major version (e.g. 1.x.x) - a small fee may be payable to continue receiving updates if a new XF major version is released more than 6 months after your purchase. This is due to the fact that major XF version releases may require a complete addon rewrite. If this is not the case, the fee may be waived at my discretion. Please consider that this is still a generous policy compared to other addons (which typically offer a 1 year renewal cycle), given that XF 1.x has been going for nearly 5 years now.

You may not redistribute this addon. Anyone caught doing so will no longer receive updates and will be permanently banned from purchasing any of my addons. Your details will also be passed on to other addon developers.

As with XenForo itself, you may use this addon on one live and one private test forum - any additional usage will require extra license(s).

Works exactly as advertised. Worth the money. Maybe the developer would consider adding a feature (or another add-on) for best threads in a forum.....
We run a forum based on attachment image uploading, divided into categories, so it's great to be able to pull up listings of the most liked content, all in the one place. Well done Luke.
A really excellent method of quickly allowing members to find member voted content of relevance, often buried deep due to age of the content. Excellent feature appreciated already by my members.
