Author: Converted to phpinclude by Anime-loo, Based off Lesanes hack for 2.0.3
Description: This modification will add two new stats to index.php. It will show the top poster/thread starter, link to their profile, show their amount of posts/threads.
Demo: N/A
Screenshot: In next post.
Warning: This will add 2 queries to index.php (the most bust page on your forum). Not recomended for large boards to install this.

This is two queries, so beware. I think it can be combined into one, though, investigating...

yea, i ran it on a board about 8 months ago and it seemed fine as the queries its running are small, but im adding a warning to the frist post.

I like it:)
If I wanted to add just top posters, I would add this to the phpinc code?

if (strpos($_SERVER['PHP_SELF'], 'index.php') != false)
$topposters=$DB_site->query_first("SELECT username,posts,userid FROM user ORDER BY posts desc LIMIT 1");

then add this to forumhome

<b>Top Poster:</b> <a href="member.php?&action=getinfo&userid=$topposters[userid]"><b>$topposters[username]</b></a>(with $topposters[posts] posts)

Right? :)

I keep getting parse errors when I use it with the one querie edit that ffdcsite posted above, and when I code it as the way it was written the mods are not shown on my forumhome :(

Ok I finally got this working, but now I have another problem.

My top thread starter is someone who we banned & deleted. How can I make it so that person isn't shown as the top thread starter, other than by deleting those threads? Can that be done?
