"Random" image sorting question

Jesper Wille created the topic: "Random" image sorting question

Hi there -

I was under the impression that setting a feed to "Random" sorting would fetch 8 (in my case) random images from the Instagram account in question - but it looks like it fetches the 8 most recent images, then only randomizes the order of them?

Unless you choose to load a lot of pictures, isn't that a bit reduntant?

Anyway, if I would like to pull images from the whole Instagram account, and not just the most recently posted, is that possible with IFWD?
For reference, I'm talking about this website: karstenk.com

Thank you very much in advance!!
Jesper W.

Hello Jesper!

Thank you for posting about this. The randomized display of Instagram Feed WD works the following way. Each time the plugin sends a request to Instagram, it responds with 20 images.

Then the plugin randomizes the first 8 images (which corresponds to the value of Number of Images Per Page option), and displays on your feed. Therefore, you can try setting a larger image for this option, and have a larger number of images randomized on the first page.

Would this work for you?
Cheers! Have a great day!

Kind regards,
