Have you ever been working on a SharePoint project and had one of those requirements for randomly choosing items from a list (or set of lists) and displaying them on a page? It’s usually for a “Featured Photos” or “Featured Articles” section or something along those lines.
If so, check out my latest article in SharePoint Pro Magazine: Randomizing SharePoint’s Content Query Web Part.
Along with the article, there’s a download link where you can grab a pre-built, fully functional version of the web part and use it in your own project. Enjoy!
