Screenshot

Below is screenshot describing why it's called 4 in 1 plugin. The top is the quick notification feature which is recently added, and the bottom is random post, mp3 player + share button (the early 3 on 1). There are options to show quick notification only and the 3 in 1 separately, or you can activate both. The placement is customizable. SEE DEMO

Installation

  1. Download the plugin from following source:
  2. Activate plugin "Random Posts, Mp3 Player, Quick Notify + ShareButton" from Plugins menu » Installed Plugins.
  3. Go to the plugin options in your dashboard check "Display Random Featured Post", define number of posts to show, widget placement, background color and categories you would like posts to be randomly selected.
  4. Save changes and Done!.

Random Featured Post

This plugin will list random posts from a chosen category. You can exclude or include certain categories, select multi categories and display number of post up to 21 posts. The random post will slides every 3 seconds continueously. It floats at the top or bottom of page, so the random post will remain appears no matter user scroll the page.

AddThis Analytic Option

One of interesting stuff from this plugin is the share button. I like AddThis share button service, it has the share networks over 300 popular sites, and I guess this is the most complete so far. Besides, Addthis share button also comes with analytic option, so you can track how many shares have been made from your contents. Off course you'll have to be registered before you can use this service (It's totally free). If you are registered, find your publisher ID then insert it to the plugin option.

Flash Mp3 Player

The Flash Mp3 Player is originally my creation and is specially designed for this plugin. It can alse be used separately out of the plugin, you can embed it anywhere. See more detail about the player and how to use it here.

Quick Notification

Quick notification allows you to announce information to your visitor. Any html codes are allowed, you can also use javascript. For example you can use the following js from DynamicDrive to let you notification content scroll smoothly:

<script type="text/javascript">

var memorywidth="810px" //scroller width
var memoryheight="30px" //scroller height
var memorybgcolor="transparent" //scroller background
var memorypadding="0px" //padding applied to the scroller. 0 for non.
var borderCSS="border:none;" //Border CSS, applied to scroller to give border.
var memoryspeed=2 //Scroller speed (larger is faster 1-10)
var pauseit=1 //Pause scroller onMousever (0=no. 1=yes)?
var persistlastviewedmsg=1 //should scroller's position persist after users navigate away (1=yes, 0=no)?
var persistmsgbehavior="onload" //set to "onload" or "onclick".
//Specify the scroller's content (don't delete <nobr> tag)
//Keep all content on ONE line, and backslash any single quotations (ie: that\'s great):
