    Can you provide the shortcode that you are using?

    I have now tried both the shortcode and the php code. Here is what I am currently using.

    echo dfads( ‘groups=257&limit=1&orderby=random&container_id=spotlight&return_javascript=0’ );

    I have now also found that if I ad “&order=DESC” to the code even though the order by is random I get the last ad posted for every reload instead of the first ad that was posted.

    Hi,

    Do you have more than 1 add associated with the group ID 257?

    That’s a fair question, I have three test ads associated with group ID 257. I found that there may be a cache program installed. Plugin name object-cache.php – Description External Object Cache, Version 2.02 – WPEngine mods. Any chance this is creating some of the problem? If so any ideas about the work around?

    Yes, that could definitely be causing the problem. Try setting return_javascript=1 and clearing all of your caches.

    That I have tried, Here is the current setting:
    echo dfads( ‘groups=257&limit=1&orderby=random&container_id=spotlight&return_javascript=1’ );

    I have cleared the caches.

    I’m also having this issue.

    [dfads params='groups=1048&limit=1&orderby=random&return_javascript=1']

    If I show two items, both my ads show up. If I order it differently so the other ad is first, it will only show that single ad.

    Any ideas?

    What version of MySQL are both of you running?
