Entry Lottoree allows you to display X random entries from your exp:channel:entries loop. For example, a random entry from your 10 most recent entries.

Let’s say you want to display a single random entry
from your 5 most recent blog articles. Using Entry Lottoree you
can do this by adding the ‘lottoree’ parameter to your
exp:channel:entries loop, like this:

{exp:channel:entries channel="blog" limit="5" lottoree="1"}
  {title}
{/exp:channel:entries}

This would select a single random article from your five most recent blog entries.

Want to select two random articles from your five most recent blog entries? Do this:

{exp:channel:entries channel="blog" limit="5" lottoree="2"}
  {title}
{/exp:channel:entries}

You can use any of the standard exp:channel:entries parameters to filter the ‘pool’ from which the lucky entry is pulled from. For example, if you want to display a random article from your Top 5 Most Commented Blog Articles, you could do this:

{exp:channel:entries channel="blog" limit="5" orderby="comment_total" lottoree="1"}
  {title}
{/exp:channel:entries}

A simple add-on that fulfills a simple need. It simply works.

Thanks for putting it out there so I didn’t have to make it myself.
