version 0.3 works with MW 1.17.0, --Erkan Yilmaz 15:51, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Shuffled results[edit]

As of PHP version 5.2.10, "The resulting array of keys is no longer shuffled." by array_rand(). Thus, items will be randomly selected, but will remain in the order they start in. Add

shuffle($items) just above $keys = array_rand( $items, $count );


shuffle($args) above $keys = array_rand( $args, $count );

to restore the original behavior. 20:49, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Not work with 1.22 - 1.23[edit]

With this error: Exception from line 316 of /includes/MagicWord.php: Error: invalid magic word 'random'. --UksusoFF (talk) 10:47, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

I have the same problem with 1.23.0. --2A01:E35:2F06:89B0:224:54FF:FE65:19AE 19:55, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
All 4 examples worked for me on a fresh Mediawiki 1.23.2. Can you try again? --Erkan Yilmaz (talk) 10:46, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

My guess you have to map the magic word. --Subfader (talk) 16:10, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Database exception / error with MW 1.26.2[edit]

Installed this with 1.26.2 and got a Database error. Fixed (as far as I can tell) by following the "map magic word" instruction linked below.

Specifically, add this line to Random.php : $wgExtensionMessagesFiles['Random'] = dirname(__FILE__) . '/Random.i18n.magic.php';

Then, create a file called Random.i18n.magic.php and insert the following in:


$magicWords = array();

$magicWords['en'] = array( 'random' => array( 0, 'random' ), );
