As you can see on my website http://www.kieshetsnel.nl/emma-watson-natalie-portman/ I currently have an Arrow left and right on the screen. But when i click next post (volgende keuze in Dutch) I Always have the same order.

Is it possible to make these 'next post' go to a random post (www.kieshetsnel.nl/random/) and Always be a loop, so there is no end on clicking that Arrow. Also an option that on a category page it selects a post from the current category?

The arrows are now part of the plugin WP Post Navigation, but when i have a code for something similar like this the plugin can be removed ofcourse.


  • Then why don't you hard code it to http://www.kieshetsnel.nl/random/?

In wordpress for get random post you have a option with 'orderby' => 'rand'

  • Sorry about the question I still got and thanks for the answer in advance. But where can I find that exactly? And does it work with that plugin in that case? Or by coding itself?
