Question about order by RAND() alternative

Recommended Posts

Here is fenway's code

 

SELECT * FROM tablename
WHERE id >= FLOOR( RAND( ) * ( SELECT MAX( id ) FROM tablename ) )
ORDER BY id ASC
LIMIT 1

 

My original code was

 

SELECT * FROM tablename WHERE (hello='1' OR hello2='1')

 

But how do I add the second where query to the first code? I tried simply pasting it into the query and it didn't work.

 

Please help.

Heres the whole code so you guys can see if I typed something in wrong

 

$buddyquery = mysql_query(SELECT * FROM buddies 
WHERE (requester='$user' OR requestee='$user') AND id >= FLOOR( RAND( ) * ( SELECT MAX( id ) FROM buddies ) ) 
ORDER BY id ASC 
LIMIT 6);
