What can this extension do?Edit

ofortuna allows you to display a random page from a specified category.


It works like the Special:Random feature of mediawiki, but whereas in Special:Random you type Special:Random/Wikipedia to see a random page from a namespace, in ofortuna you type Special:ofortuna/Countries to see a random page from a category.
