    I just installed Random Redirect. It installed fine with plug installer, and now it is active, but I don't see any way to access it. It is nowhere in the dashboard. There are no directions at all with the plugin.

    The documentation is so basic, it's easy to miss. (I missed it at first too.)

    The randomizer works by just sticking "?random" at the end of your blog's URL. So if your URL is:

    http://www.example.com

    Your random URL would be:

    http://www.example.com/?random

    (Be sure the slash is in there after the domain name.)

    Just put this URL into a link in the template for your sidebar or wherever else you want the random link to appear.

    I had tried that originally. I got an error message so I thought there must be more to it.

    I now get this message-

    Not Found

    The requested URL /go.php was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Hey, http://www.example.com/?random works good for me.

    But, how do I use the new parameters?
    random_post_type or random_cat_id

    I'd love an example...

    I would like to see an example of the other parameters as well... I am COMPLETELY stumped as to how to use them!

    Thanks!

    Oh no, this topic is marked as [resolved]. I wonder if we should start a new one?
