A Random Number

Description

The shortcode [arandomnumber] can be added to any post, page, or widget as many times as needed to display a random number. The number has a default range of 1 – 100, but can be changed using the min and max attributes, like so:

[arandomnumber min=1 max=10000]: This will output a random number between 1 and 10,000. (Like this: 8,014)
[arandomnumber min=-500 max=-1]: This will output a random number between -500 and -1. (Like this: -232)
[arandomnumber min=50000000 max=60000000]: This will output a random number between 50,000,000 and 60,000,000. (Like this: 56,449,060)

etc.

If you wish to disable commas, use the comma=no attribute, like so: [arandomnumber min=100000 max=999999 comma=no]. This will output a random number within the range without the commas, like this: 456245.

FAQ

Why does this plugin exist? It seems kind of pointless?

How dare you. It outputs a random number, so if you need a random number, there is nothing better. This is also useful to check if a page is being cached or if your server is properly loading since the number will change on every page load. Use it to add random parameters to forms, urls, etc.

See? That’s practical.

Useful And Easy To Use

This plugin is awesome, it's useful and so easy to use (you just have to insert a shortcode anywhere you want and baaaaam).

Works great.

I needed a way to force a link to reload and not use the cached version. This tool allowed me to insert a random number in the URL.

Works well

It does what it says it does. Simple yet works, used it to help me with testing page caching.
