I need some help working out this MySQL query:
I need it to pull a random quote, that hasn't been used before (that's the 'checked' part of the query), and it needs to find it based on a specific category. I am using this alongside PHP with MySQLI Prepared method.
This query yields an error stating that the id column is ambiguous.
SELECT `id`, `word`, `def` FROM `dictionary` AS `r1` JOIN (SELECT (RAND() * (SELECT MAX(`id`) FROM `dictionary`)) AS `id`) AS `r2` WHERE `r1`.`id` >= `r2`.`id` AND `category`=? AND `checked`=0 ORDER BY `r1`.`id` ASC LIMIT 1
I'm trying to base this on this: ~jk - ORDER BY RAND()
