Among other features, you can also @import Randomiser stacks into non-stack pages using the PlusKit plugin (not included), or embed randomised content into other parts of a page like the theme header, banner, sidebar or an ExtraContent container. This is a stack with lots of possible uses.

For users seeking to introduce some basic advertisement banners on a webpage without the need for third-party advertising agencies, the Randomiser stack offers a great entry-level solution. You can use standard HTML image tags to pull advertisement banners in from a central folder on your web server. Then setup Urchin campaign monitoring for each advert image, so that your clients can accurately record their advertisement campaigns and keep track of click-throughs in Google Analytics, Piwik or Gosquared Livestats. The Randomiser stack is compatible with all major web browsers, including IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, Safari, Opera, Chrome and Firefox. It works with most RapidWeaver themes, and a free demo version is provided for you to download and tryout before purchase.

Randomiser is a simple stack and does not use PHP code; so it is compatible with many different web server configurations and is easy to setup and test locally. Because all pooled content is displayed in the page source code, Randomiser is very search-engine optimised. This increased level of search engine optimisation means that search engine spiders won't encounter any problems accessing and indexing randomised content. In web browsers without Javascript support, Randomiser safely switches off automatically and all pooled content will be displayed.


Press F5 or CMD + R to reload the page and see different content displayed at random.

Warehoused Images

In this example a Randomiser stack was added to the page and the Item Pool was set to 8. Then a folder of 8 images were uploaded to the web server. Each of the items has an HTML code stack added, which pulls in one of the 8 images. When the page gets refreshed, one of the 8 images is displayed at random.

Random Quotes

In this example the Item Pool was set to 10 and a text stack containing a random quote was dropped into each placeholder.


  1. Once installed, drag and drop a Randomiser stack into your page.
  2. In the settings panel on the right, control how many items of content you want the randomiser to choose from.
  3. Into each placeholder created, drag and drop your content. Content can comprise of text, HTML code, images or styled text.
  4. Once done, preview your page to see one of the random items displayed.
To setup campaign tracking, go to the Google Analytics website (or another website of your choice) and create a new UTM tag. This is the link you would then apply to each randomiser item (such as a banner image), to monitor its performance. This UTM tag works great with Google Analytics and GoSqaured Live Stats, both of which are supported by RapidWeaver. Typically this is the sort of HTML code you could use for each advertisement image:

<a href="">
<img src="" alt="Alt text goes here" title="Title goes here" />
The anchor tags allow the entire image to act as a link through to a unique website. The image tag specifies the location of the stored advertising image, and other attributes. If you want to apply the same link to all randomised content within the same randomiser stack, tick the link option in the stack settings and setup your link via RapidWeaver.
