Random Tagline


Replaces the tagline on your blog with a random tagline selected from a taglines file you provide.

Version 1.2 adds diagnostic information to the settings page.
Version 1.1 makes the random tagline consistent throughout a single page display.

The Tagline File

The tagline file should contain all of the taglines you want to randomly select from. It is return-delimited, ie. there is one tagline per line.


  1. Drop the file random_tagline.php into /wp-content/plugins
  2. Activate the plugin in the Plugin Management page
  3. On your Settings page, select Random Tagline
  4. Enter the path to your tagline file, and click Save Changes

All occurrences of your tagline throughout your blog (except the General Settings page) should now randomly select from the file you specified.
