    random content widget Link to this post

    I have a page taht take data from external database about product. This page show product's photo, some row of text adn a 'detail' button (when I ckick on this button I show all product characteristic).
    I need a widget to show randomly one of this product every week. (only product name and a link to that product page)

    Assuming your product class name is Product and the fields you want are Title and Link...

    Page_Controller extends Content_Controller
    function RandomContent()
    return DataObject::get_one("Product",null, false, "RAND()");

    and on any page

    <% control RandomContent %>
    $Title $Link
    <% end_control %>
