Random Blogroll Links for footer/sidebar? (4 posts)

    Is there a plugin that would display a random set of a certain amount of links? The only one I found that was similar to what I was looking for is the Better Blogroll plugin ( http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/better-blogroll/ ), but there's only instructions for the sidebar widget, and I'm not advanced enough with PHP to figure out a code for it to embed it in my files.

    Here's what I'm trying to do. If you look at my site ( http://www.shiny.nu ), you can see my list of affiliates and dailies I have on the footer. I only have room for 9 links (other than the "view more links" link) down there, and I have more than 9 affiliates. I would like to have a plugin that I can put there to randomize 9 links from my blogroll.

    Any suggestions? :)

    I'd like to know, too.

    This should work:

    <?php wp_list_bookmarks('categorize=0&limit=3&orderby=rand'); ?>

    If you want a widget, consider downloading and installing Otto's php code widget.

    Then put that code in the widget.

    How would I adjust that so that <li> and </li> appear before and after each random link?
