Display random posts plug-in in WP theme, NOT sidebar? (2 posts)

    Is there a plug-in that I can use to display about 10 random posts in the WP theme (in a list format). And if possible with the option to add/change the posts you want to display on that list and add to sidebar.

    I display on the main page 6 new posts and the rest goes to Archives or you can access them via a category. Therefore would like to have a list of posts in the sidebar that would list some of the older posts.

    I have the most popular, commented plugins but it is not want I want to list.

    PS: If I want it to be displayed I think I will need to add a code to the theme ?

    You mean in the main content area where the posts go? This plugin seems like it would do what you want. But a caveat: It doesn't say specifically that it's compatible with 2.5.x so beware of that.

    Oh, here's one more that you might check out:

    Seems like you could play around with the loop and come up with something. :)
