Advanced Random Posts Widget displays your posts by selecting randomly with thumbnail images (optional). It gets posts from selected categories or current category or all posts. When your visitors are at home, it gets posts from all posts or selected category. If you set ‘Get posts from current category’, when visitors see single post, widget lists posts in the same category of single post or when visitors click a category link, it gets posts from current category.
Notice: Version 2.2+ requires at least 2.8.

Thumbnail Custom Field Name
If you want to display the thumbnail of your posts via a custom field, write its name.
Height – Width
Get first image of post
If you don’t want to use custom field, plugin will get first image from your post content.
Get first attached image of post
Plugin gets first attached image of post.
If post has no image, plugin display this image. Ex: http://www.yakupgovler.com/default-image.png
Notice: If you use three options, plugin uses custom field image firstly. If the post has no custom field, it gets first image from content. At last it gets first attached image. I suggest not to use “Get first image of post” for performance. It queries much more.
Plugin gets posts in these categories. (Category IDs, separated by commas.)
Get posts from current category:
Posts will be get from current category (single post’s category or current category).
