    Is there a way to display a random post from within a category? For example: If i have a category “Random Post” and I assign 10 posts to that category, I would like to have one of those 10 show up at random on the home page, when a user accesses the page.

    Try this: on the Filters tab for Waver Posts & Slider Options, under Define Content Selection Filter Options, put 1 in box for Number of Post to Show. Then just down below that, in the drop down menu for “Display posts ordered by” select “Random Order”.

    You would also want to enter random-post in the category filter box if you want the random posts limited to just that category.
