[resolved] Random thumbnails grid in home page (6 posts)

    Hello everybody,
    I'm using WordPress 3.5.1 and Nextgen Gallery 1.9.12 with NGG Powertags for images filtering and everything's fine so far.
    My only concern is: how on earth to set thumbnails to show on random order on page refreshing?

    The website is: http://www.emanuelebastoni.com/mobile

    I've found lots of hints over the internet, and yet looking for a comprehensive tutorial/guide/whatever.
    Please, if you think you're going to help by supplying code chunks, would you please be so kind to also clearly specify where these chunks should be putted?
    I'm a newbie and learning WP the hard way... :)

    I use short code [Random Max=12] number could be anything you want it to be and it selects 12 different photos on refresh assuming you are using nextgen galleries

    This is shortcode I'm currently using, in order to benefit from tags filtering by NextGen Gallery Powertags plugin:
    [nggpowertags gallery=3 tagmenu_format=empty all_word=PORTFOLIO]

    I have tried to include your code outside and within square brackets, with no success... :O

    I did reverse way, and finally proved that NextGen Gallery Powertags plugin somehow interferes with correct NGG behaviour, so I'll further investigate to find a solution out.

    Thank you,
    Stefano

    I like that power tag shortcode.... looks good. But for me the random short code is what I was looking for
