[resolved] This isn't random? (8 posts)

    This plugin doesn't make my text random, it just spits them out in their ID order? IS this supposed to happen?

    You have to check the box for random order.

    Are you using a shortcode in a page? If so, add random="1" within it.

    Example:
    [randomtext category="testimonials" random="1"]

    Otherwise, it will rotate through all of them in ID order, as you suspected.

    <?php randomtext('category','1'); ?>
