The Random Root Page extension allows to display of a random root page. The regular Special:Random is not suitable for wikis (such as Wikibooks) which use a subpage hierarchy. This extension can be used as a substitute (so, for example, it can be used to show "random books" in Wikibooks, instead of random pages).
Starting with MediaWiki version 1.27, this functionality is moved into MediaWiki core and this extension must be removed.
Download the extension and save the files in a folder named Randomrootpage under your extensions folder. Then add a line to LocalSettings.php like:
|This extension is being used on one or more Wikimedia projects. This probably means that the extension is stable and works well enough to be used by such high-traffic websites. Look for this extension's name in Wikimedia's CommonSettings.php and InitialiseSettings.php configuration files to see where it's installed. A full list of the extensions installed on a particular wiki can be seen on the wiki's Special:Version page.|
