In the ever-evolving landscape of website design, creating an engaging and dynamic user experience is key to capturing and retaining your audience’s attention. One way to achieve this on your Wix website is by implementing a random slideshow using Velo Code. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process of adding a touch of randomness to your slideshows, ensuring that each visitor is greeted with a unique visual experience every time they refresh the page.

Getting Started:
Before diving into the Velo Code, make sure you have a Wix website with a slideshow element in place. Once you’ve added a slideshow to your page, note down its ID. You can find this in the Properties panel on the right side of the Wix Editor.

The Velo Code:
Now, let’s write the Velo Code that will make your slideshow display random slides upon each page refresh. Copy and paste the following code into the “Page Code” or “Site Code” section in the Wix Editor:

$w.onReady(function () {
    // Get the slideshow element by its ID
    const slideshow = $w('#yourSlideshowID');

    // Get the number of slides in the slideshow
    const totalSlides = slideshow.slides.length;

    // Generate a random index to select a slide
    const randomIndex = Math.floor(Math.random() * totalSlides);

    // Set the current slide of the slideshow to the randomly selected slide

Don’t forget to replace ‘yourSlideshowID’ with the actual ID of your slideshow element.

Save your changes, and voila! Your slideshow will now showcase a different slide each time someone visits or refreshes the page.

Why Random Slideshows?
Implementing a random slideshow adds an element of surprise and freshness to your website. It prevents monotony, making each visit a unique experience for your users. Whether you’re showcasing products, portfolio items, or creative content, a random slideshow can keep your audience engaged and curious about what comes next.

Feel free to customize the code further based on your specific requirements. You can add transitions, adjust timing, or combine this feature with other dynamic elements on your site to create a truly immersive experience.

Incorporating a random slideshow using Velo Code on your Wix website is a simple yet effective way to enhance user engagement. By embracing this element of unpredictability, you can make your site more memorable and encourage visitors to explore further. Experiment with different customization options and watch as your website comes to life with a touch of randomness.
