Hi list,

I've been trying to figure out the following: I have a SysFolder with  
a handfull of FCE's in it (gifbuilder objects that Content managers  
can create using TemplaVoila). The homepage of my site should show  
one of these FCE objects at random. I tried using a CONTENT object  
and I found a lot of pointers on how to do this, but for some reason  
this script will only select 'regular' content elements such as 'text  
only' - but not FCE's. Any idea why?




			<field_content type="array">
				<tx_templavoila type="array">
					<sample_data type="array">
						<numIndex index="0"></numIndex>
	5 {

		table = tt_content

		select {
			# ID of the page where your content elements are stored
			pidInList = 36

			# Number of content elements to show
			max = 1

			# select a random element
			orderBy = rand()

		renderObj = USER
		renderObj.userFunc = tx_templavoila_pi1->main
