Admin Refresh Options on a Post

If you are logged is as admin and are viewing a post, you will see a "Refresh" button beneath where the random posts are displayed. You can click this "Refresh" button and automatically refresh your random posts.

If you use WP Super Cache, clicking "Refresh" also clears the cache so your users can see the new random posts immediately.

The "Refresh" feature is useful for those who have long refresh times, but want to tweak the output a bit.
