Seems like “No Order” is not what I thought it is.
I know this is getting a little out of hand, but is there a way to randomize shown posts based on the current post ID or something? So one page has a static random selection of posts that meet the criteria mentioned above and the selection is the same even after reload.
So it would do this
- Check current post for Primarycat > Subcat (Category with a parent) > Parentcat (In this order and work with the first that’s available)
- Show posts that are randomly selected based on a static but unique value, such as current post ID and
- are in the same category selected above
- have the “new” tag and are randomly selected based on a static value, such as current post ID.
Thanks for all your help Tom!
