    Hi, i’ve used for a while this little code in the text widget for displaying five random posts of “consigliato” category:

    [display-posts category="consigliato" orderby="rand" posts_per_page="5"]

    Now for some reason it displays always the same five posts (on over 60 of this category), not even the lasts. What can i do to have again the widget showing the random posts as before? Maybe i’ve modified something by mistake but i don’t think it’s the case…

    The blog I need help with is wesablog.com.

    Hi,
    The code looks good. I think it might be a glitch. Will add a tag to the sidebar of this topic to call for staff attention.

    Hi @rickywesa , the five posts are chosen randomly, but the result is cached for performance — if they weren’t before, this was an issue that was fixed. Every time the cache clears, you’ll get five different posts. Will that work for you?
