    I hope to see some BD Widget Framework renderers for this.

    Especially :
    - Current Rankings
    - Biggest improvers
    - Biggest sliders
    - graphical format as per the following suggestion?

    I am going to need A LOT more information (details) on each render.

    I'm going to give this some thought @Bob and give some details on what I can think of (might take a few days)

    I will say that renders would be beneficial for exposing the rankings throughout the forums/site where there are sidebars (or some other hook location).

    a sidebar widget that display power ranking (with article text stripped)

    example:
    will this display "this week" power ranking from a defined user/category

    Still thinking about this but know more than ever a widget or 2 is needed for exposure :)

    Thinking out loud:

    • Widget that shows latest ranking published (select a power ranking in widget options) perhaps filtered to show only the first 5 (CLICK HERE TO VIEW COMPLETE RANKINGS)
    • Shows rank, icon, name, and increase/decrease #

    Are you asking about a RENDERER for the [bd] Widget Framework (since you used the term widget)

    OR

    Are you asking for a Sidebar BLOCK for a specific action of a specific controller eg, The FORUM controller so that a Sidebar BLOCK can be displayed on FORUM HOME page. BLOCKS are specific to a single action in a single controller. When requesting them, you HAVE to be specific to the exact page (action/controller).

    Ranking = A specific AUTHOR's collection of Power Rankings for a Specific Sport in a Specific Season.

    Power Ranking = a specific week of an Author's RANKING for a Specific Sport in a Specific Season.

    This is for REGS to respond to, nobody else... I am asking the OP to respond to my QUESTION...
    Are you wanting to display a specific individuals most recent power ranking for a specific season in a specific sport? If so, that should be doable (in theory).

    The [bd] Widget Framework controls the placement of the widgets (there are built in common locations or you can use many advanced functions of the BWF to add custom hook locations in a specific template to place a widget exactly where you want it).

    Widget Framework is def the way to go:

    This isn't where I want specific PR renderers to go but adding a sidebar to the PR pages to target other renderers is pretty simple.

    Cheers,

    Regs.

    Bob,
    Would love to see the following widget renderers:
    1) Biggest Movers that looks something like this
    upload_2015-10-23_12-54-11.png

    2) Biggest Improvers, Shows all the teams that have moved up places in the past week, sorted by the (new position, or biggest increases).
    Display should be :
    [New Position] - {Up/Down} [Positions changed] Team Name + Logo [(last weeks position)]

    or something similiar

    3) Biggest Sliders(not sure what its called in american sports)...as in biggest decreases in power rankings.
    As above in 2), for for teams that have gone down.

    4) As in 2) but display all teams, irrespective of positional changes, sorted by current position.

    5) Widget to show the latest ranking titles [as in this page http://xenaddons.com/powerrankings/]

    Sortable if possible.

    Option to display how many teams/items user wants to show in the widget from renderers 2) 3) and 5).

    Not sure how "doable" this is, but THIS is a good example of details... I will say tho that for something like this, in a MULTI USE addon, things like UserID, SportID and SeasonID are going to have to come into play.
