Is there a way to create a "Digg" like site in Drupal. Basically I want to create a site based in "social voting". The users should be able to vote on specific items and based on this "democratic" behaviour the popularity of that particular item would be determined. I did come across a module "drigg" but was not too impressed with it. Any other alternatives ?

You should check on the voting api and maybe fivestar if you need a rating system. As MPD suggested, Flag could be helpful too for this. But for a digg like site,... I think your safest bet might be Vote Up/Down. Then of course, you'd need to create views to display the front page, or each different category based on how many votes your users submit.

  • We make a Digg like site that we use to have our employees vote on the next features of our product. We use both the Vote UP/Down module and the voting api module.

  • Have you tried the D7 version of Vote Up/Down? I have been turend off by the fact that it doesn't have a public dev version yet.

An easy solution is to use the Flag module to create your votes. Then you can make a View, sorted by flags and potentially with other criteria (like date windows). You may also be able fold in criteria based on Radioactivity.


For historical reason I'd like to mention the Drigg module and the now defunct Drigg site aimed to build Digg in Drupal.
