Creates a widget that takes randomly a number of excerpts from a category of your choice and fades them in and out.
This plugin was developed to display excerpts from random posts in a category. jQuery is used for fading the plugin in and out. It's a great way for displaying testimonials of clients or just giving a snapshot of content from your site.
Shortcode added as of version 1.4
The most basic use is:
[reFader] this will use the default options.
Here is an example of all the options in use
[reFader title="Random Excerpts" cat="23" amount="5" length="50" duration="5000" linked="no" url="http://www.jackreichert.com/plugins/random-excerpts-fader/"]
This will show 5 (amount) posts from category #23 (cat). It will show 50 (length) words from each post and fade out/in every 5 seconds (duration). It will not link each title to the corresponding post, but it will link all the titles to this plugins page (url).
