Is this possible? I'd like to have a "Get Lucky" link in a block, so readers can go to a random story.

Thanks!

As a block, this should be pretty easy. A good opportunity to learn some PHP and (My)SQL if you don't know it already

bye, Dirk

Well, that's the problem, isn't it. I'm new to all this - I learned CSS while setting up my Geeklog site (though I did know a bit of HTML). I don't have time to start learning PHP...

Hi! About 3 years late, but I've been digging about: looking for the answer to this question Smile

I'll be pulling tons of stories from OLDer blogs and putting them in my new awesomo-5000 Geeklog (/love), and would like a lil block showing about 3 random story titles.

I do a lil css, but previously did hardcoding html only. I've already borked my lib_common.php once lol. Anyone willing to help me build this (or point me to one prebuilt!) will be surely appreciated and verbally worshipped.

Thankee Sai!!

If you do a site search for 'random' you'll find an older 'Random photo from articles' plugin in the Downloads section, should that help you (don't know if it works with a newer GL version)?

'Random photo from articles' plugin is working with Geeklog1.4.1.

You can see it in action here in the blocks call "Matériel".
