Maybe my SQL-knowledge is broken but is ordering by rand while selecting a primary key id senseless?

argh, forgive me: I mistook the comment_id with the post_id. :/

Note to myself: More coffee…

Note to myself: More coffee…

I never touch any code when I’ve just woken up and with 0 caffeine in my system! :)

wise decision. At least you don’t make yourself an idiot on your favourite design-blog. Congrats to the lucky cms-winner btw. :)

It’s my first win ever!

I always liked my comment_id… I guess 44770 is my lucky number.

BTW, I think I must’ve deleted the email containing the information??? Can you resend it to me please?

Thanks a lot!!!!

Anybody like CushyCMS? I have never used it. I usually use Joomla.

I think it is worth to check out. Looks like free and easy software.

I agree with Arris, it is worth checking out. Also, congratulations Alex on winning.
