1. WHAT THIS PLUGIN DOES:
EVR Random Links allows you to create a list of URLs and to randomly display links to any number of them in your posts, pages, and widgets.
2. HOW TO USE:
a. After activating the plugin, go to the plugin settings and create/paste links inside the text area one line at a time. You can load the link examples to see how you should do it.
b. You don't have to fill in the other settings since they will get populated automatically with the default values if left empty. However, you can also customize these at will.
c. To display the links on your site, you have to paste the plugin's shortcode handle inside your page, post, or text widget of choice:
That shortcode will be replaced automatically by the necessary code to display the links.
The shortcode also takes parameters which, if provided, will override the default settings set in the plugin's option page. These parameters are:
text --> the link text to display
number --> the number of links to generate
[evr-random-links text="Click here" number="1"]
The code above will display one link with the text "click here".
d. IMPORTANT: If either:
i. The link list on the plugin settings is empty,
ii. The link list is broken or not inputted correctly, OR
iii. The "number of links to display" option exceeds the number of links on your list
The plugin will throw an error and let you know what the problem is.
3. ADDITIONAL CUSTOMIZATION:
You can customize the look and feel of the links by tweaking the frontend stylesheet that is added to your site automatically when the plugin is active. The stylesheet in question is called
style.css and it is located inside
