I am using the plugin Top Contributors. That's very helpful for all blogs. But the problem with this plugin is: it is not integrated with custom post types.

How could I extend the plugin to do that?


This plugin hasn't been updated in almost two years, so you should consider finding a new one.

That said, in this cases you have to open1 the plugin files and search for some string related to your issue, e.g., post_type.

You'll find that in the file functions.inc.php, it has two occurrences of:

AND a.post_type = 'post'

Change that to:

AND ( a.post_type = 'post' OR a.post_type = 'YOUR_CPT_SLUG' )

Not sure if that's the only thing that needs to be changed, but now you should be able to further inspect it and locate other parts that need modification.
