i am using the slider in a text widget and coded the following
[promoslider width="100%" height="100%" category="rooms" numberposts="1" start_on="random"]
The Slider options are also set to random but the display is always the first promotion; I've tested this by changing the sequence. Even more bizarrely, its the first promotion in just that category that gets displayed i.e. if I make a promotion the most recent and its in more than one category it doesn't get displayed!
Is there something strange happening because its just one promotion being selected?
