    I want one post to be chosen for each page.
    Get Posts by - testimonials (post_type)
    Number of Posts to show: 1
    Order Posts by: Random
    Order: when I choose ascending I get my first testimonial post
    when I choose descending, I get my last testimonial post

    I never get any posts in between.

    Hi MTWK,

    Sorry for the trouble. Just for kicks, have you tried showing more than just 1 post and seeing if you get more than just the first or last post and that they are in a different order after a few page refreshes?

    I have seen situations where the SQL random function is disabled by the hosting company, server settings, or by different caching plugins.

    Hi MTWK,

    Since I haven't heard back in 4 weeks, I'm going to close this thread. If you continue to have trouble feel free to respond back again. Thanks!
