    Randomize a list of Children (DynamicNodeList)

    Hi,

    I want a list of items (nodes) to display on a page in a random order. Is there any way to do that?

    I tried

    node.ChildrenAsList.Where("show").Random()
    

    But that only returns 1 item.

    I've also tried something like this:

    node.ChildrenAsList.Where("show").OrderBy(x => Guid.NewGuid());
    

    But that results in an error too, because I can't use a lambda expression there.

    Any other ideas? I can't be the first that needs to shuffle a list of nodes, can I?

    It your node is CurrentPage you can use Model.Content instead:

    var random = Model.Content.Children.Where("show").OrderBy(x => Guid.NewGuid());

    easiest way is to use .Random(#) Replace # with the number of results or to display all - if there aren't too many - put in a number which will cover the lot.
