Extended Random Number Generator
By default, the original Random Number Generator plugin short code works within widgets, posts, and pages. We have extended the core capability of the plugin so that it also works within text/html fields, such as those used for advertising purposes.
One primary use: It can be used to defeat browser caching by inserting a random number. The most common implementation of this is within Google DoubleClick ads where they require an ‘ord=’ within the script to ensure that ad creative is not cached by the browers.
Use Example 1: input: http://my_url?ord=[random-number]” output: http://my_url?ord=134548.
Use Example 2: input: [random-number from=”2″ to=”72″ format=”%b”]%d minutes[/random-number] output: an integer value between 2 & 72 followed by the word ‘minutes’
