The Random In Category extension allows you to direct the user to a random page in a specified category.


Very similarly to Special:Random, you can specify a category name as a parameter to the page. Thus, "Special:RandomInCategory/Foo" or "Special:RandomPageInCategory/Foo" (MW ≥ MW 1.22) will get you a page from the "Foo" category.

Comparison to Core

MediaWiki versione: 1.22

In MediaWiki 1.22, a Special:RandomInCategory feature was added to core. The core version gives much more biased results than this extension (However, it has much less performance overhead). Versions of this extension for MediaWiki 1.22 and greater change the name that this extension provides from "Special:RandomInCategory" to Special:RandomPageInCategory to prevent conflict with the core feature.


  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called RandomInCategory in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/RandomInCategory/RandomInCategory.php";
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
