Ever wondered you could display images randomly inside a blogger slider? So far we have shared dynamic recent posts slider and a static slider, today for the first time online, we are releasing a Random Post Slider for BlogSpot blogs which is built using Blogger JSON Feeds API, FlexSlider and jQuery. A fully responsive image slider that will automatically display your random posts on your homepage or sidebar, almost anywhere you want. Lets learn how to create a random slider for blogspot in simple steps but before that lets see a live demo!
What is Blogger Random Post Slider Widget?
Due to the natural structure of blogging platforms such as blogspot, articles end up being buried down once they get old. New users often avoid navigating through all your labels/categories, as a result most of your best content receives no attention at all. A random post slider is the best way to showcase your oldest posts to your visitors. The slider widget will pick your old posts randomly and automatically display the thumbnails either on homepage or sidebar depending on what location best suits you. The slider rotates in a clockwise direction where each slide is both responsive and dynamic.
