Content Randomizer

Description

Content Randomizer plugin allows you to create sets of short texts, images or even video and to show them on any widgetized area. You can make sets of quotes, phrases, jokes and other short texts separate from the other website content. Content Randomizer plugin uses its own custom type posts for the full control over the website content. Same custom type posts are used to add images or videos (embedded).

The plugin is user-friendly and easy to use. Just install the plugin and activate it. Now you’ll be able to create categories for random content, each category will represent an individual set of content. Create random content posts and assign them to the preferred category. Now when you have at least one content set you can go to the Widget Manager (Appearance → Widgets) and add one of the two available Content Randomizer plugin widgets.

The main Content Randomizer widget reacts only when you browse from one page to another on your website, it will change content every time on load or refresh action. Second widget available with Content Randomizer plugin shows random content as slides, so there is no need to browse to another page or refresh the current page to see all content that was assigned to the active content set. The active content set is determined by random content category selection in widget settings (just a simple dropdown).

There are shortcodes available for more advanced users. You can use these shortcodes to render random content at any selected location of your website. We hope you will enjoy this plugin.

Really good

Hi,
I´m using the plugin since 2015 on some of my homepages. It runs really good with choices from 60,85 and 108 randomized pages.
For details see (german language):
www.astro-healing.info (108) – page “Tageenergie”
www.universal-healing.info (85) – page: “Tagesenergie”
www.licht-essenzen.info (60) – page: “Essenz wählen”

good work.

Großartig!

Ich benutze das Plugin für meine Webseite: Universal Healing Info um dort eine “Tagesenergie” anzubieten. Dahinter stecken 78 komplette Seiten mit Informationen, die zufällig gewählt werden.
Das Plugin händelt das alles absolut einwandfrei – keine Probleme.
Super! Danke!
