Single Random Post With Text

Description

You can bring on the first page or any other page, for the new visitors, the old content.It’s no need of the question why should I do this because you want that your visitors could have in their view your older articles.

What does this plugin bring new?

Other plug-ins are already doing a great job about random posts, but for me was not important to show just a list of a few links to my articles; not just a random generated list, with some titles. For some new visitors, the article’s content is more important than the title, actually, for anybody this statement is true .
So, I created this plugin to mark out even some text from the random article.
