    Lightbulb Displaying Random Posts

    Hi!

    Sometimes your visitors may just want to read a random post on your blog.

    This is a good thing to implement on your blog.

    All you have to do is make such a url:

    http://www.thedollardiary.com/?random

    I have seen many big bloggers using this and I have been asked many a times how to do so, thus I decided to make this thread.

    Cheers!

    EDIT: My sleepy head cannot understand what I am missing out on and why this is not working, but you can try this.

    And I really stress on using this, as this is a way even your old posts that have been buried can get a few visits.

    Am I missing something, or I'm just too dumb? *confused*

    Yes, exactly what are you supposed to put in the URL? The /?random at the end of your site? I refreshed your link above and nothing happens - no random article. I think we need more clarification, because it sounds like an interesting concept!

    Damn! Sorry guys, I should have checked, but it did work on my other blog this way. Just will see what I missed out.

    EDIT: I edited my opening post, have a look.

    Oh OK, sorry, didn't see the link. Maybe changing the colour of links is a good idea after all then? lol
