    I would love to have a box at the bottom of each page of a thread, recommending other threads on my site. Doesn't need to be similar, in fact, outbrain just has to be compelling. So, maybe a thread that's becoming more popular, or maybe a popular thread in another forum/node.

    Does something like this exist, or are people interested in having this made?

    Actually not looking for similar threads, just popular threads in other forum nodes, not in the same forum node.

    You can do this with widget framework

    Alright, so I used [bd] Widget Framework to pull this off.

    1. Used the Threads Renderer
    2. Set the limit to 6
    3. Cutoff I left default
    4. Selected the forums I wanted to include
    5. Changed Layout to List (similar to forum_view)
    6. Changed Title to "Trending Now on _____ (use your forum name here)
    7. position was set to: hook:thread_view_qr_after (This puts the list after the Quick Reply in the thread view)
    8. Set display order to -10
    9. Also disabled this for mobile.
