Display random projects using short code block in WordPress


We have seen how to use short code to play with portfolio projects, I have few more posts in this category.

How about a random wise project list , in a page or post, which changes the order each time load. A customization of short code will make it possible

portfolio showposts=3 orderby=rand

You can specify number columns using columns parameter and number of posts using showposts parameter

  • display_types: display Project Types – displayed by default. (true/false)
  • display_tags: display Project Tag – displayed by default. (true/false)
  • display_content: display project content – displayed by default. (true/false)
  • display_author: display project author name – hidden by default. (true/false)
  • include_type: display specific Project Types. Defaults to all. (comma-separated list of Project Type slugs)
  • include_tag: display specific Project Tags. Defaults to all. (comma-separated list of Project Tag slugs)
  • columns: number of columns in shortcode. Defaults to 2. (number, 1-6)
  • showposts: number of projects to display. Defaults to all. (number)
  • order: display projects in ascending or descending order. Defaults to ASC for sorting in ascending order, but you can reverse the order by using DESC to display projects in descending order instead. (ASC/DESC)
  • orderby: sort projects by different criteria, including author name, project title, and even rand to display in a random order. Defaults to sorting by date. (author, date, title, rand)

How to add to post/page

  • Add a short code block
  • Add the customized portfolio code [Above]
  • Preview and Publish changes
