WP Photo Album Plus
[resolved] Random Photo (5 posts)

    I use the potd widget but would also like to see a way to put a random pic that is different from potd on a page or in a post or widget. Seems like it should be easy enough. Hope you think it's worth doing.

    Set Display method on the potd admin page to Change every .. pageview.
    Use this script: %%wppa%% %%photo=#potd%% (optional: %%size=..%% %%align=..%%) You may have more than one on a page, they all are different.

    Is it possible to set the album for #potd within the shortcode / script?
    eg. %%wppa%% %%album=album1%% %%photo=#potd%%
    or can #potd only get the album from the potd setup page? I should probably just try it. Worst that could happen is I have to revert. :)

    No, you can have either %%album= or %%photo=

    What do you expect to see in your suggested script?

    What I was hoping for was to be able to call wppa in a shortcode or script or widget and in different locations specify different albums to use depending on where. Like, on my about page a photo from the "back in the day" album, while on my home page my most recent photos, etc. I want to display one photo at a time that changes to keep the site dynamic. It would be even better if I could make 2 or more calls on the same page that would place photos from different albums.
