Default Random Featured Properties on Front Page Layout

Is there an option (or hack) to randomize the Featured Properties on the "Front Page Layout"?

I want HP to randomly select 4 to 8 properties for display on the front page.

Good question. This would be a great modification to the featured property module. Have you emailed support?

Thinking about this, Im pretty sure you could modify the 'Random Property' module to do this.

I haven't contacted support. There were some hacks on the old version and I was hoping someone would drop some hints about how to do it.

Is that HP 1.0 beta 5?

Im running beta 4 but I could take a look for you if you want to email the module files to me.

Hey Jay.

I ended up just making my own component that queries the database by itself. I found this easier than trying to get the HP module to do it.

If your still struggling with it pm me.

Thanks,

Not sure why the PM is not working but I have the same problem trying to send you one.

I sent you an email a few minutes ago.

Wink Random featured properties in module solved

For HP 1.0.0 - Open mod_hotproperty_properties folder, and than file mod_hotproperty_properties.php,

in the line 59:
'order' => array('Featured.ordering' => 'ASC')

replace with:
'order' => array('RAND()')

and that is all.

Its working for me.
But be aware, that if you use multiple featured properties modules, in all of them properties will be displayed randomly. Latest and random modules are not affected with this.

Ciao
