Re: [Piers1] Show random paid link
Hi,

Ok, try this:

Ok, you need 2 globals:

1) random_paid_in_category

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 Add_Date DESC LIMIT 1');

my $time = time;
my $cond = GT::SQL::Condition->new('CategoryID', 'IN', $all_ids);
my $cond2 = GT::SQL::Condition->new('isNew','=','Yes','isValidated','=','Yes','ExpiryDate','>', $time, 'ExpiryDate', '<', 2147483647);
my $sth = $db_obj->select (['Links.*'], $cond, $cond2 ) || die $GT::SQL::error;

my @links;
while (my $hit = $sth->fetchrow_hashref) {

if ($CFG->{build_detailed}) { $hit->{detailed_url} = $CFG->{build_root_url} . "/" . $DB->table('Links')->detailed_url( $hit->{ID} ); }

if ($hit->{isNew} eq "Yes") { $hit->{isNew} = 1; } else { $hit->{isNew} = 0; }
if ($hit->{isPopular} eq "Yes") { $hit->{isPopular} = 1; } else { $hit->{isPopular} = 0; }
if ($hit->{isChanged} eq "Yes") { $hit->{isChanged} = 1; } else { $hit->{isChanged} = 0; }

push @links, $hit;
}

return { random_link => \@links }

}


2) check_if_paid_exists

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 Add_Date DESC LIMIT 1');

my $time = time;
my $cond = GT::SQL::Condition->new('CategoryID', 'IN', $all_ids);
my $cond2 = GT::SQL::Condition->new('isNew','=','Yes','isValidated','=','Yes','ExpiryDate','>', $time, 'ExpiryDate', '<', 2147483647);
my $count = $db_obj->count ( $cond, $cond2 ) || die $GT::SQL::error;

return { num_paid_found => $count }

}

..then use this:

Code:
<%num_paid_found($category_id)%>
<%if num_paid_found > 0%>
. ..
<%endif%>


Then, call with:

Code:
<%check_if_paid_exists($category_id)%>
<%if num_paid_found > 0%>
<%random_paid_in_category($category_id)%>
<%if random_link.length%>
<%loop random_link%>
<%include nclude_paid_link.html%>
<%endif%>
<%endif%>
<%endif%>


Again, untested - but thats how I would use it (from the 2 globals above)
