    Sweet code. I used this on my multisite install in a different way. I created a page template with this in it, then created a page with that template as the page template. I then added a “Random Post” button to the theme that all my multisites use that links to that page. So the result is a button that users can continually click to get to a random post on a random blog on the network. fyi this requires that you use the sitewide tags plugin to repost any posts from sub blogs onto the main blog. It sounds complicated maybe but it works great!

      Sweet sounds cool Paul, you could do something similar with this if you created a new template and page called random or something with the above. Hey you should submit a snippet or two we just recently add a contribute option – http://wpsnipp.com/index.php/contribute/
