    Hello out there!
    I had a feature request that I wonder if you would consider for a future update. I was hoping that there was a way to randomize the pins seen in my widget. I thought it would be a nice way to save on screen space and show visitors some variety as they view post.

    thank you so much for a great widget!
    cheers

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'm pretty sure there is a way to do this but I do not have plans to expand the plugin much further, simply because of lack of time. This was my first - and possibly last - plugin developed, and the amount of unpaid time it takes to support a free plugin is more than I can keep up with. I'm doing my best, and want to do whatever I can to give back to the WordPress community, but support could become a full-time job, and I already have one of those (that I get paid for).

    Hey man, I totally understand! Thanks for creating a great plugin, it really is the nicest option for Pinterest. Maybe someone smarter than I will step up and offer to help. Hint hint people!

    Don't know if you're still looking for this Jadan, but for you or anyone else finding this on Google, this is a pretty simple addin.

    Go to Plugins -> Pinterest RSS Widget [EDIT]

    The first page that should come up to edit is:
    pinterest-rss-widget/pinterest-rss-widget.php

    Find this line:
    foreach ( $rss_items as $item ) :

    right above that line, add:
    shuffle($rss_items);

    Click Update File and that's it!
    Check it out at KimJoyFox.com/blog in the sidebar.
