Thank you for creating such a great plugin! It is very helpful!
For my current project, I would like to have an area on the home page that features or previews a rotating, random set of directory members’ profiles.
Is there a solution that you recommend for accomplishing this?
The easiest way to do this would be the List widget included in the Widget Pack. You can set up the List widget to display a list to display as randomized. You can then placed in the theme’s sidebar or placed on a page with a shortcode.
Now, you can also use the Connections shortcode with the order_by shortcode option. There is an example on how to display a randomized list. This setup will be a little more complicated so I highly recommend setting the home_id shortcode option with tht epage ID of the page set as your directory home page. So, your shortcode on the home page would look something like this:
[connections home_id=X order_by='id|RANDOM']
Hope this answers your question thoroughly!
