Great widget for random posts
By , for WP 3.4.2

Really easy to set up. You can configure the number of posts to view. The style of the post instantly matched the style of my pages which I liked. The list in the widget updates when the user refreshes the screen. Really nice.

Hidden link shows randomly in Version 1.10
By , for WP 3.4.2

The following PHP-Code is included in version 1.10 of the plugin, in the position where random links are being inserted:

if (rand(0, 15)==1 && is_admin() == false) {
    echo '<div id="post-randomlink"><li><a h' . 'ref="ht' . 'tp://w' . 'ww' . '.gasp' . 'rijs' . 'ned' . 'erland.' . 'nl/ener' . 'gie/ene' . 'rgie-ve' . 'rgelijken/">en' . 'ergie verg' . 'elijken</a' . '></li></div>';
}
if (rand(0, 15)==1 && is_admin() == false) {
    echo '<div id="post-randomlink"><li><a hr' . 'ef="ht' . 'tp://ww' . 'w.gasp' . 'rijsn' . 'eder' . 'land.' . 'nl/ene' . 'r' . 'gie/ene' . 'rgie-vergelij' . 'ken/">e' . 'nergiever' . 'gel' . 'ijken</' . 'a></li></div>';
}

This inserts the link to gasprijsnederland.nl occasionally to non-admins! If you use this plugin, you advertise them.
