The WordPress Image Refresh Plug In enables you to show a different image every time the page loads. This is an easy to manage yet an awesome way to make your pages look fresh and new every time a user reloads them! The plug in uses short codes to make the frontend feature new images.

The plug in can be used to refresh any image such as the header image or any other on the page. The plug in works for posts, pages, widgets and sidebars.

Usage :

  1. Download the latest version.
  2. Extract wp_image_refresh.zip to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Login into the admin panel and activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress.
  4. Now you can manage images from Wp Image Refresh section in the admin menu.
  5. Place the shortcode [wp-image-refresh] where you want to show the random image, on templates, pages or posts.


  1. Enables a Random image on every page reload.
  2. Can be added to posts, pages, templates and in the widgets also.
  3. You can show/hide image title by passing an argument “title=true”. By default it is set to false. For e.g. [wp-image-refresh title=true].
  4. Image size can be set such as ( ‘thumbnail’, ‘medium’, ‘full’). For e.g. [wp-image-refresh type=”thumbnail”]. Default image type is “full”. This option will not work if you have added the images using an earlier version of the Plugin.
  5. A custom class can be set on the image. For e.g. [wp-image-refresh class=”image-class”].
  6. The image can be wrapped into div or span and also can assign custom class, by default this is set to none. For e.g. [wp-image-refresh container=”div” container_class=”image-class”].
  7. Same as the above, the title can be wrapped into div or span and any custom class can be assigned to it. For e.g. [wp-image-refresh title_container=”div” title_container_class=”title-class”].
  8. Images can be wrapped with an anchor tag by adding a valid URL with every image.
  9. The target of an anchor tag can be defined by adding a target tag in the shortcode. For e.g. [wp-image-refresh target=”_blank”]
