I have looked around the forums before posting. I want to display a random post from a single category say “life”. How to achieve it? I am a zero at php. currently i am using the following lines of code.
<div id="content"> <!--Get the last post from Life category. --> <?php query_posts('category_name=Life&showposts=1'); ?> <!-- Start Stylyzing Prdoduct --> <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <h1><?php the_category(' '); ?></h1> <?php the_title('<h2>', '</h2>'); ?> <?php the_excerpt(); ?> <?php endwhile;?>
this code shows the latest from the life category. how to get a random post from life category?
Thanks in advance
