    Wink Random poll displayed

    This hack will change the poll that is displayed on your homepage from the most recent to a random one.


    OPEN modules/currentpoll.php

    FIND

    PHP Code:
    $query['pollquery'] = 'AND forumid IN(' $vba_option ['portal_poll_forumid'] . ') ORDER BY poll.pollid DESC'
    REPLACE WITH

    PHP Code:
    $query['pollquery'] = 'AND forumid IN(' $vba_option ['portal_poll_forumid'] . ') ORDER BY RAND()'
    SAVE AND UPLOAD

    That's it, you're done.

    Enjoy.


    EDIT - just did a search and found this already exists - doh! should have done that first :P

    Um.... how is this different from entering RAND as the "Polls Forum ID" value?

    it draws a random poll from your specified forum.

    entering RAND in forum id draws random poll from ALL forums.

    AH, OK, now that would make more sense.

    Default Re: Random poll displayed

    I'm getting polls pulled from years ago, is there a way to set this feature for only polls posted in the last x days? 30 or 60?

    I've got a 'real' time sort of site (auto racing related) and pulling a poll from 2002 at Daytona and who will win is silly...

    is there a way to make it show unanswered polls first?
    such as
    order by answered, RAND
    or something like that?
