WordPress: Display 3 Random Images Attached to a Different Page

  • # April 5, 2011 at 6:06 pm

    Question is in the title! For the life of me I cannot figure this out.

    On a page (not post) I want to include three thumbnails from a gallery that is on another page (not post), but I can’t see how to do it.

    I feel like I’m sort of on the right path with this, but I really have no idea where to begin.

    My only gripe with WordPress, their silly media/asset management.

    Try the following link:

    Though it has post to post/page you can edit the code so it references from another pageID instead of a postID.

    Hope that helps!

    Actually got it solved with this:

    < ?php
    $args = array( 'post_type' => 'attachment', 'numberposts' => 3, 'orderby' => 'rand', 'post_status' => null, 'post_parent' => 12 );
    $attachments = get_posts( $args );
    if ($attachments) {
    foreach ( $attachments as $post ) {
    the_attachment_link($post->ID, false);

    Love figuring things out!
