random link with image
Hi Andy,
for random links I normally use your ultra globals.

But is there a global to show random links from defined categories and their subcategories?
AND
only links which have an image uploaded by your thumb image plugin!

Thanks

Untested, but something like this should work:

get_random_link_with_image
Code:
sub {

my $cat = shift;
my $all_ids = $DB->table('Category')->children($cat);
push @$all_ids, $cat;

my $db_obj = $DB->table('Links','CatLinks','Category');
$db_obj->select_options ('ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 1');

my $cond = GT::SQL::Condition->new('CategoryID', 'IN', $all_ids);
my $cond2 = GT::SQL::Condition->new('isValidated','=','Yes','LENGTH(Field_Name)','>',0);

my $link = $db_obj->select (['Links.*'], $cond, $cond2 )->fetchrow_hashref;
$link = Links::SiteHTML::tags('link', $link);

return { 'random_link_with_image' => $link }

}

Call with:

Code:
<%get_random_link_with_image(CAT_ID)%>
Title is: <%random_link_with_image.Title%>
URL is: <%random_link_with_image.URL%>
..etc

Be sure to change the part in red above to the actual field name :)

Cheers

Hi Andy,
thanks that's close to what I need!
I'm calling the global with this code

Code:
<%get_random_link_with_image(693)%>
<small><a href="<%random_link_with_image.detailed_url%>" target="_blank">
<%random_link_with_image.Title%></a><br />
<a href="<%random_link_with_image.detailed_url%>" target="_blank">
<img border="0" src="<%random_link_with_image.Bilder%>" <%if random_link_with_image.Width%>width="<%random_link_with_image.Width%>"<%endif%> <%if random_link_with_image.Height%>height="<%random_link_with_image.Height%>"<%endif%> title="<%random_link_with_image.Title%>" /></a></small>
There are only two problems
I need the full url to the thumbnails from your plugin.
At the moment <%random_link_with_image.Bilder%> does print out only the image title?

Thanks

Hi,

You would want to use it like you do with Thumb_Images elsewhere, but instead of passing along $ID, you would use $random_link_with_image.ID Smile
