Awesome...I can add another item to my signature :lol:

Well just to let those interested know, I'm working on another version that will also allow registered users to set this up for themselves as well.

Well you could make it hard coded for registered users but I don't know that all of your users would be very appreciative of it if you did that.

Make a backup of includes/functions.php in case this doesn't work:

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------
#
			if ( $theme = setup_style($userdata['user_style']) )
			{
				return;
			}

#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]------------------------------------------
#
	//BEGIN Random Styles for Guests MOD
	if (isset($HTTP_COOKIE_VARS[$board_config['cookie_name'].'_rand_style']))
	{
		$rand_style = $HTTP_COOKIE_VARS[$board_config['cookie_name'].'_rand_style'];
		$theme = setup_style($rand_style);
	}
	else
	{
		global $db;
		$sql = "SELECT *
			FROM " . THEMES_TABLE . "
			ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 1";
		
		if ( !($result = $db->sql_query($sql)) )
		{
			message_die(CRITICAL_ERROR, 'Could not query database for theme info');
		}
		
		if ( !($row = $db->sql_fetchrow($result)) )
		{
			message_die(CRITICAL_ERROR, "Could not get theme data for themes_id [$style]");
		}
		$rand_style = $row['themes_id'];
		$theme = setup_style($rand_style);
		setcookie($board_config['cookie_name'].'_rand_style', $rand_style, (time()+900), $board_config['cookie_path'], $board_config['cookie_domain'], $board_config['cookie_secure']); 
	}
        return;
	//END Random Styles for Guests MOD

The phpBB software itself uses cookies so I didn't see anything wrong with using a cookie to set this up. I didn't want to have to edit the database for this mod is the main reason I have this like that. If I was to use the sessions table I would have had to add a new column to it.

I've just this minute installed it and I love it!

How would I do it so that it doesn't randomise all skins? I have two skins I don't want to be included.

If you know the theme id's you could probably do something like (replacing 1 and 2 with the theme id's):

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------
#
		$sql = "SELECT *
			FROM " . THEMES_TABLE . "
			ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 1";

#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]----------------------------------
#
		$sql = "SELECT *
			FROM " . THEMES_TABLE . "
			WHERE themes_id != 1 AND themes_id != 2
			ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 1";

Exactly as -SV- graciously answered 8) Thanks by the way.

You'll need to look at the phpbb_themes table in the database to find out the theme's ID.

P.S. Glad you liked it :D
