Thanks

Did you check the extensions database?

^^ Displays only the Top Poster Of The Month for the current month
in its Hall Of Fame instead displays the Top Posters Ever (since the board's start date).

Yes I did, and I only found that one which only has the monthly top poster.

Pls ask for support where support for the extension itself has been made for. :)

I am not really asking for support.

Just if there is an extension or a way to have the top posters of the week, month and year for example.

It seems there is no way and the guys in here will tell me to request an extension that no one will do :)

Take a look at the extension: if it gives you the top poster of the month, then it should be a piece of cake to copy the extension, change the month-part to week, even year. Use different fields to store the data.
I'm fairly certain even I could do it (if I had the time).

Added: actually, I will have a go at it, but probably only after next week.

If what you're asking for doesn't exist the next obvious thing is to make an extension request or, if you're willing to pay someone to do it, then you can post in the wanted forum.

Thank you.

Please let me know if you did it, or I will look into hiring someone, but I can't believe this does not exist already...

By the way, I love Belgium and Leonidas and Godiva :D So cheap in there and so expensive in Spain...

So I had a go at at it: and it's a bit more complicated than I thought.
Changing the the month part to a week or to a year is (as I thought) just a question of changing the period, and that calculated OK, but then duplicating that code for week/month/year, defining new fields and adding the new top-x table (perhaps it's easier with adding new fields) + the extra template parts is still way above my head and not something I envisage being able to do in the near future.

I tried but this extension is too complicated for me so you should go ahead and request this in the Wanted! forum. Perhaps 3Di himself can accept the offer.

On a side note: I'm in full agreement with the concept of extensions (and the objective to avoid having to modify core files) but even having been quite comfortable in making modifications for phpBB2 and 3.0, it's like starting all over again and I've kind of lost the energy and motivation :( (perhaps it's the nearing autumn blues).

If it was that simple, I'd have provided the changes to the code by now. Instead, this "simple request" requires a considerable effort in terms of time and code to write, not only to modify. Almost rewrite the extension itself. For what? No one has lived of glory only.
