What the new [numbers] mean
I added code that displays the number of times each message has been read. I also added a "Most Popular Messages" list to the main page, which lists the top ten messages in order of how many times they have been read.
Only drawback is that the numbers only increment when someone posts a new message, posting a new messages causes MessageBase to regenerate the static HTML pages (Which are the main page and the topic list pages). I put in the static HTML code to get the search engine spiders to index the site. I could not find a way to get the spiders to index .asp pages, they seem to like only html pages.
If someone knows of a way to get spiders from google, etc, to index .asp pages, please let me know!
