Random Posts Widget Extended

Provides flexible and advanced random posts. Display it via shortcode or widget with thumbnails, post excerpt, and much more!

No image/thumbnail options?

Your theme needs to support Post Thumbnail, please go to http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Thumbnails to read more info and how to activate it in your theme.

Thumbnail Size

By default it uses arpw-thumbnail which have 50x50 size. If you want to use custom image size, you can install http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-image-sizes/ then create new image size, it will appear in the Thumbnail Size selectbox in the widget option.

Thumbnail Size Not Working Properly

I have mentioned it in the plugin description. If you use images that were uploaded to the media library before you installed this plugin and/or you have your own custom image sizes, please install Regenerate Thumbnails plugin to fix the image size.

How to add custom style?

The plugin comes with a very basic style, if you want to add custom style please do wp_dequeue_style to remove the default stylesheet. Place the code below in your theme functions.php.

function prefix_remove_arpw_style() {
    wp_dequeue_style( 'arpw-style' );
}
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'prefix_remove_arpw_style', 10 );

Then you can add your custom style using Custom CSS plugin or in your theme style.css. Here's the plugin selector

/* ul */
.arpw-ul {}

/* li */
.arpw-li {}

/* title */
.arpw-title {}

/* thumbnail */
.arpw-thumbnail {}

/* date */
.arpw-time {}

/* excerpt */
.arpw-summary {}
