Random Product


This widget will select a random product from the WP e-Commerce (part of WP-Shopping-cart) list of products and display in a given sidebar. This plugin will
only work with the WP e-Commerce plugin. It requires that permalinks be enabled so that the link from the widget will work properly.


After downloading:

  1. Upload the random-product directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Set the products page permalink – without the slashes. The default permalink is ‘products-page’, as is with the plugin. No editing should be needed unless the deafault permalink is changed.
  4. Set the widget title according to how you want it to display in the sidebar.
