    1 little feature missing —–> Order by: Random

    i really hope you guys can add a “random” order instead of just Old-New New-Old a-z z-a,
    i currently have this plugin running my homepage, but in time i will change it because i dont want my posts to be static.

    since my website is about gadgets, every post is dictated to its own gadget, so it really doesnt look good when every time you visit my site you see the same gadgets/posts, so the option of Random order is infact mandatory in my case.

    2nd issue is if you have 2 columns, every new row will be at the same height, some some rows have gaps upwards because some posts on the same row have bigger features images, i think the term is masonry layout?

    im not sure if “is equal height” option supposes to fix this, but in my case checked or unchecked it makes 0 difference to the visual, so im not even sure what that option is suppose to do.

    thank you for your time and i will not close this page until i get a reply lol, because i really like this plugin but the fact that i cant set the post order to “random” really disturbs me.. i hope we can get a fix, plus if masonry layout would be an option this plugin would literally be perfect.

    Hey @kingschild2016,

    Many thanks for your valuable suggestion to improve this plugin to the next level.

    We are always happy to listen to our plugin users first and make those features available.

    1) Random order option, we will sure happy to add it ASAP.
    2) Does that mean you eager to see new layout option – ‘Masonry’ with same design style?

    Let us know your reply to make the next action possible from our end.

    Regards

    yes those are the 2 basic features that i would say this pluggin is “missing” and i cant wait for them to be added 🙂

    as somebody who has tried ALOT of plugins for the homepage layout i can say this plugin is easy to use and delivers a good visual overall,

    apart from those 2 basic features i would also suggest having a “lazy load” feature, which is actually highly demanded(for faster web speed load) i mean people are creating plugins just for it. I dont think it should be hard to incorporate into a plugin such as this one(maybe it is, i dont know, i dont know how to code :D)

    i dont know if its worth the time to invest to add the lazy load feature but i would surely try it since jetpack’s lazy load and other dedicated plugins to lazy load wount work on my site. its probably due to other plugins or my theme, i dont know and cant do anything about since all the plugins i use i need and im definitely not changing my theme, so im stuck with no lazy load to improve my website speed for now 😀

    but thats just another suggestion, i wouldnt know if its worth the time to add such a feature or even if its possible.

    also ive just noticed you have “number of items” but there is no option to “load more” or “next page” which i think is pretty essential 🙂

    Hey @kingschild2016,

    Thanks for your detailed explanation.

    Actually, this is a feature request with the existing plugin.

    We will surely implement it whenever we have free time. Right now, we are busy with other stuff.

    I hope you can understand it.

    Thanks
