I have question : why did you change the signature of getRandomImagesAlbum() function on 1.4.2?
With 220.127.116.11, the function signature was getRandomImagesAlbum ($rootAlbum = NULL, $daily = false, $showunpublished = false) and allows to display a random image, even if it is unpublished.
With 1.4.2, the function signature is now getRandomImagesAlbum ($rootAlbum = NULL, $daily = false) and I can't display an unpublished image.
this signature was useful: I was doing a random banner with pictures "hidden" in an unpublished album with unpublished images.
for now, publish some picture is not enough : I need to publish the album too, and it is really not practical
