    I'm a "n00b" when it comes to wordpress.

    I am running the theme 2012 and need to create a static home page, already done with that, that displays a random post every time the page is refreshed. Simple Enough, but none of the tuts on google have helped.

    message here that you have PMed me and then in your PM tell me what I have to do, if it works! YOU WIN! 15$ to your paypal. Thanks :)

    What is it you want to display? A state homepage display or blog type?

    Have you tried this:

    Code:
    [COLOR=#000000][FONT=Consolas]<?php[/FONT][/COLOR]query_posts(array('orderby' => 'rand', 'showposts' => 1));
    if (have_posts()) :
    while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    
    <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
    
    <?php the_content(); ?>
    
    <?php endwhile; [COLOR=#000000][FONT=Consolas]endif; ?>
    [/FONT][/COLOR]

    Hi there

    I would advise that you take a look at http://wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-random-posts-widget/

    Simply download it and upload via the Wordpress standard installer or you can manually upload via ftp, your choice. Its a widget so its pretty easy to configure.

    Your mailbox is full but if you need any help, PM me.

    That will only display random links to the post, so does half the job, the coding needs to be altered to pull the full post.

    Oh sorry, I misunderstood.

    PM me a pastebin with the PHP of the page you want it in. Or Skype me...

    This isn't a $15 problem.

    I think you can go to settings>reading and there is an option if you want to show latest posts or static page to come up each time you go to the site.Correct me if im wrong, but this is what i see on my WP settings
