    Hey, Alex...

    I know folks have been asking for this for a couple of years...Is it possible to randomize a shortcode slideshow? Would also love to be able to pull from multiple galleries instead of having to make a gallery containing all photos.

    Anyone made any headway on this?

    Any ideas on this? I also need to figure out how to do this, or find an alternative plugin that does this?

    Thanks

    I know it is possible to randomise the SLideshow, but i did not find anything for the random gallery pictures. Good question!

    Hey Frank, how is it possible to randomise the slideshow? I have been banging my head for a few days with this!

    I wish it was that simple, that doesn't work for me, I was under the impression the shuffle mode only works when you have the slideshow flash based. I am looking for something that isn't flash based. Thanks

    Yes. I must have a random slideshow without Flash. If I install JJ NextGen JQuery Cycle I can have random, but I lose the ability to change the background color. I still can't figure out image alignment either - won't align to middle. Only to top. Anybody recommend a slideshow plugin that allows for full CSS changes and has random?

    There is a way, although it is REALLY hacky.

    If you've messed around with this before, you'll notice there is a random slideshow option in widget form. All I did was put that into the sidebar, load my page, and copy the code and used that where I needed to. The code can be found here: http://pastebin.com/k0d9gBJN

    Hope that helps!

    Cheers!

    Thanks dmglouis, but unless I can use it universally (one fix for all slideshows), it's pretty hopeless. Seems like this should be an easy thing....
