Random Content

Omschrijving

This plugin allows you to display random content anywhere on your site using a shortcode or widget. You can group your random content together, allowing you to display different content in multiple locations throughout your site.

The content is added via a custom post type, so you have full access to the tinyMCE editor. This allows you to easily add images, text, and links to your random content.

Using a widget

  1. Navigate to Appearance->Widgets and add the Random Content widget to a sidebar.
  2. Select a group from the dropdown. If you don’t create a group, the widget will use all entries.

Using a shortcode

Place the shortcode [random_content] anywhere on a post or page.

To choose entries from a specific group, add the group_id parameter. For example, [random_content group_id="64"].

To specify the number of posts to show, add the num_posts parameter. For example, [random_content group_id="13" num_posts="3"].

Installatie

  1. Upload random-content.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Create an entry in the Random Content post type.
  4. Categorize your content using Groups.

Only content within the content editor will be displayed.

FAQ

Can I group certain entries together?

Yes. Create a group, and assign specific entries to the group. It works just like categories.

How do I find the group id?

Click on Random Content > Group in the WordPress admin. Look for the number in the ID column.

How do I display more than one post?

In the shortcode, use the num_posts parameter. In the widget, enter a number in the “Number of Posts to Show at Once” input.

I wish I could give this plugin more than 5 stars! It creates the right conditions to execute my ideas beautifully without onerous tutorials and steps. Random Content is still THE ONLY plugin that delivers exactly what I need in order to bring my vision for an "Idea-Making Gizmo" to life! Additionally, I found myself in need of support on a compatibility issue and Jeremy Green himself not only updated the amazing plugin but guided me patiently until it was up and running again. I unreservedly recommend this plugin and any product offered by Jeremy Green and Endo Creative.

I was looking for a solution for randomly displaying specific content in two sections of the same page. The Random Content plugin does exactly what I need. And it allows me to quickly edit the random content I've already created. Thanks for creating this plugin!
