In the Oxygen's Facebook group a user asked:
Hi, How do i have Easy Posts post 1 category in a random order?
Making the above work involves
- getting a list of all categories
- looping through the above list and storing the IDs of all the categories in an array
- writing a custom query + loop where in we pass a random ID from the above array as the value of "cat" and ask WP to pull just 1 random post from that category.
As can be seen from the logic, there are a few moving or dynamic parts to achieve our end goal and as such, this is not possible using Oxygen's Easy Posts component.
This members-only tutorial provides the steps to use a Code Block component to pull one random post from a random category using a custom WordPress query with the loop part taken from one of the Easy Posts' presets.
In the Oxygen editor, add a Section.
Add a Code Block inside.
