Quotes Collection
[resolved] Random function not working (9 posts)

    My instance of the plugin is not responding to the randomize requirement when selected. The quotes are showing in numerical order when random is selected, and in something like alpha order when random is turned off. Would so appreciate guidance on this. The site is http://www.patientvisitredesign.com on the subpages. Thanks!

    If you have just two quotes, what else can you expect?

    Actually Srini there are 20 quotes in the collection, all marked public. Can you provide some help so I can get them to show up widget and randomize? Thank you.

    Do you have a value for the 'character limit' option? Just remove the value and see if all quotes show up. If the problem still persists, contact me directly and we'll see what we can do to sort it out.

    Thanks! I removed the character limit and purged caches but am still only seeing those two quotes. What's the best way to contact you? My email is jonathan@bionicsquid.com

    If I assign the tag of "all" to a quote and then tell the widget to only show that tag it seems to work, but assigning a tag to all quotes and setting the widget to show those doesn't seem like it solves the underlying problem. Any thoughts on this?

    Apparently, this has to do with some MySQL configurations using the same seed value for RAND(). It's same as the situation described at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8077828/order-by-rand-not-working

    I will update the plugin shortly so that the plugin handles this situation.

    Thanks for bringing up this issue!

    Just tried to donate via PayPal but apparently accounts in India are blocked from receiving payments from PayPal. If that changes please let me know as I'd like to donate to keep you going.
