Single Random Post


This plugin will allow you to display a single post selected at random from your post database

There are no bells and no whistles.


  1. Upload wp-single-random-post.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place <?php single_random_post(); ?> in your templates


Why does this even exist?

Because I had a use for it, and nobody else had made it yet

Why doesn’t it do more?

Because there are plenty of plugins that do a lot more, but none that do this little without editing
