Joomla1.5 extension mod_MostReadByCategoryOrSection download
Joomla1.5 module --mod_MostReadByCategoryOrSection
Written by Li   
If the current menu is using com_content(or com_contentex), this mod will display most read articles of the category or section selected by the menu.
For frontpage and some other cases(the active is not using com_content or com_contentex), it will display the most read contents,just as mod_mostRead does.It works properly in Joomla 1.5 version natively
