Random Featured Post

The Random Featured Post plugin allows you to display a random post from a designated category as a "featured" post.

Additional Notes

  • The show_featured_post($PreFeature = '', $PostFeature = '', $AlwaysShow = false, $categoryID = 0, $NumberOfPosts = 0) function has five optional arguments. The first two are for any HTML you would like to display before and after the featured post. The third argument is a boolean (true/false) argument which will override the \'Show Featured Post\' option and always display the featured post when true. The fourth option allows you to specify a single category to display from, overriding the selections in settings page. The fifth option allows you to show more than one post at a time, overriding the settings page option.
  • All output is contained in a DIV class named "featuredpost" and can be adjusted via your stylesheet.
