Display an item at random
How do I display a random item from a multiple-item region?
You have a multiple-item region and would like to display one item at random from it, perhaps on your homepage.
You can select from content used elsewhere on your site with
perch_content_custom. To display the content randomly use a sort-order of
RAND, to display only one item set count to 1.
<?php perch_content_custom('Testimonials',array( 'page' => '/testimonials.php', 'template' => '_home_testimonial.html', 'sort' => 'familyname', 'sort-order' => 'RAND', 'count' => 2 ));
You can also see this solution in our video tutorial on using perch_content_custom.
