Let's learn how you can randomize the order of the images in the Elementor image carousel element.

We will also learn how to achieve this, even if you have multiple image carousels on your page.

To begin with, add this code right after your Elementor image carousel

Add this code in an HTML element, that is placed right after the image carousel element.

Super Easy Elementor Image Carousel Random Order! 1

<script>
(function(){
let parent = document.querySelector('.elementor-image-carousel');
let images = parent.children;
let frag = document.createDocumentFragment();
while (images.length) {
frag.appendChild(images[Math.floor(Math.random() * images.length)]);
}
parent.appendChild(frag);
}());
</script>

Keep reading only if you have more than one carousel element on your page. Otherwise, this should already work just fine!

If you have more than one Elementor image carousel element on your page, give it a class name.

Give it a class name of 'carousel1' , then change this line in the code:

document.querySelector('.elementor-image-carousel');

to this

document.querySelector('.carousel1 .elementor-image-carousel');

If you want other Elementor image carousels on the page to also be random, duplicate the code, and adjust the class names.

Give them the class names 'carousel2', 'carousel3', etc.

Then, duplicate the code, and add it in an html element that is right after each of the carousel elements that you want randomized.

Finally, simply adjust the same line of code, with the class name that matches the carousel that is right above the respective HTML element.

For example, you would have this line for the third carousel on your page.

document.querySelector('.carousel3 .elementor-image-carousel');

Finally, enjoy your random Elementor image carousel!

  1. This doesn't work for me despite the simple instructions. Only have one medai carousel.
    1. Place media carousel widget
    2. Place HTML widget after media carousel widget (have tried after both inside and outside)
    3. Add the code supplied on this side to HTML widget
    4. Add images
    Do I need to place HTML on each picture or what don't I understand?

    1. Hey Peter! Problem is that this article is for the image carousel element! Which is a different element than the media carousel element.

      Here is the code for the media carousel element :

      <script>
      let parent = document.querySelector('.elementor-widget-media-carousel .swiper-wrapper');
      let images = parent.children;
      let frag = document.createDocumentFragment();
      while (images.length) {
      frag.appendChild(images[Math.floor(Math.random() * images.length)]);
      }
      parent.appendChild(frag);
      </script>

    2. Maxime Desrosiers thank you so much 🙂 I have tried and tried and would never have found out by my self. Forever grateful

  2. if i have 3 carousels on my page and one of them doesnt require randomizing but due to the code the 3rd one is also getting randomized what should i do in that case ?

    1. Elementor doens't have a logo carousel element... Maybe you are using an addon? I suggest you use Element's image carousel element, and use the code I provide above!

  3. Hi.. when I try to combine this with the image carousel links per image code the links will still attach to the images in the random order... any way to fix the link to the correct image while still randomizing the display order of the images as per this script?

    1. Hey Stian!

      Yes this would be possible... however is not a common scenario so I won't be coding this.

      If you really need it I could work this out as custom work. Email me at maxime@element.how for this.

      Cheers!

  4. How can i do that with an Elementor Testimonial Carousel Widget?

    I try this, but it doesnt run

    let parent = document.querySelector('.elementor-testimonial');
    let images = parent.children;
    let frag = document.createDocumentFragment();
    while (images.length) {
    frag.appendChild(images[Math.floor(Math.random() * images.length)]);
    }
    parent.appendChild(frag);

    1. Try this:

      let parent = document.querySelector('.elementor-testimonial-carousel-wrapper .swiper-wrapper');
      let images = parent.children;
      let frag = document.createDocumentFragment();
      while (images.length) {
      frag.appendChild(images[Math.floor(Math.random() * images.length)]);
      }
      parent.appendChild(frag);
