Hello, I'm just starting to learn PHP and I figured out how to retrieve 9 random posts in single.php, before the main loop :
<?php $my_query = new WP_Query('showposts=9&orderby=rand'); ?> <?php while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?> <?php the_title(); ?> <?php the_excerpt(); ?> <?php endwhile; ?>
I'm getting beautifully several random posts, but not always the 9 posts I specified. Sometimes is giving me just 4 or 5 posts.
Do you know how to fix that behaviour ?
