I guess its been a while since i did a wordpress.com fanboy post!

I wanted to rearrange the widgets for mozey.wordpress.com. Then i saw a little drop down menu that has only one option, “sidebar”. Customizing the dashboard was promised, and believe coming very soon. It will look something like his.

Random post redirect to a given category by mozey

Okay, so matt’s plugin Random Redirect is really cool if you have a photo/coolstuff type blog and you want people to click on a button and be redirected to a random post. But what if, you have also a bunch of “side note” type posts that you do not want to consume your lunch time reader’s attention with? like updates, how good the last movie was?.

Here is a REALLY quick hack that will alter Random Redirect to show only the content of ONE category. Then, all you need to do is to make sure you create an “umbrella” category which contains all of your pictures/whatever and Random Redirect will look only in there.

- Edit -> random-redirect.php

- Set the variable, $random_id as such: ( Replace the wp_term_relationships.term_taxonomy_id is equal to your category id that you want the search to be done against).

$random_id = $wpdb->get_var( "SELECT wp_posts.ID FROM $wpdb->posts, wp_term_relationships WHERE wp_posts.post_type = 'post' AND wp_posts.post_password = '' AND wp_posts.post_status = 'publish' AND wp_posts.ID = wp_term_relationships.object_id AND wp_term_relationships.term_taxonomy_id = 1 ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 1");

Save and DONE!

********************
update:
here is the full code part of the plugin, i tried copying and pasting the whole thing, but wordpress kept on chopping off some stuff!. I’ll put it for download somewhere if its really not working!.
********************

function matt_random_redirect() {
global $wpdb;
$random_id = $wpdb->get_var( "SELECT wp_posts.ID FROM $wpdb->posts, wp_term_relationships WHERE wp_posts.post_type = 'post' AND wp_posts.post_password = '' AND wp_posts.post_status = 'publish' AND wp_posts.ID = wp_term_relationships.object_id AND wp_term_relationships.term_taxonomy_id = 1 ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 1");
wp_redirect( get_permalink( $random_id ) );
exit;
}

if ( isset( $_GET['random'] ) )
add_action( ‘template_redirect’, ‘matt_random_redirect’ );

Adsense on wordpress.com revisited by mozey

Okay, first of all. Like many, my favorite blog on wordpress.com is icanhascheezburger.com. WICKED, LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE.

But if you notice, right on the header of this blog, there exist adsense!. I thought we cant use adsense on a wordpress.com hosted blog!. What gives? does wordpress allow adsense only on higher profile blogs?, if so, how is that defined? Can someone please shed some light on this.
