Random Redirect
Not all categories work? (5 posts)

    Ok, so I wanted to customize the random redirect features on my site to be more category-specific. Unfortunately I'm hitting an odd snag.

    These categories work:
    http://squackle.com/?random&random_cat_id=7
    http://squackle.com/?random&random_cat_id=3
    http://squackle.com/?random&random_cat_id=14

    Yet, this one doesn't:
    http://squackle.com/?random&random_cat_id=10840

    The one that doesn't work always goes to the latest post on my site, and not the category I wanted it to go to. Is there a reason why this happens?

    Sorry, that is the correct category that exists that isn't working. The other one was for one that i was testing.

    We recently put out a refresh of the original Random Redirect, appropriately called "Random Redirect 2" :)

    It fixes any of the category issues as well as adds some new parameters like tags, keywords, and dates into the random URL string.

    On WordPress: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/random-redirect-2/

    With all the examples: http://showappeal.com/random-redirect-2/

    sorry to say it, but your plug-in didn't seem to fix the issue. i will make a new thread on your plugin page, hopefully it can be worked out there
