Table of Contents

Let's learn how to easily randomize the order of the slides in the Elementor Slider element!

Let's also make this work if you have more than one Elementor slider element on your page!

First, add this code right after your Elementor Slider

Add this code in an HTML element, that is placed right after the Elementor slider element.

Elementor Slider Random Slides Order Easily! 1

<script>
let parent = document.querySelector('.elementor-slides');
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 slider on your page. Otherwise, this should already work just fine!

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

Give it a class name of 'slider1' , then change this line in the code:

document.querySelector('.elementor-slides');

to this

document.querySelector('.slider1 .elementor-slides');

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

Give them the class names 'slider2', 'slider3', etc.

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

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

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

document.querySelector('.slider3 .elementor-slides');

Finally, enjoy your random Elementor Slider!

Let me know if everything works for you!

    1. Benjamin Fielden yes it's possible, with this code :

      <script>
      let parent = document.querySelector('.elementor-widget-testimonial-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>

      1. Thanks really helpful.

        Can you please guide me, how to show only 6 random testimonials out of 20? Your script is showing all testimonials randomly.

  1. Hi It work well 🙂

    (Important note: HTML elements needs to be positioning right after each sliders)

    Is this also possible on a backgrund-slideshow on a Column ?

    If yes ... How ?

    Thanks from Copenhagen

      1. Hi Maxime. I can’t seem to get it to work on background slider… help?

      2. Hi Maxime, I would love to be able to do this with the background slideshow on sections. But I can't get it to work no matter what selector I use.

      3. Hey Nick! Try this code :

        <script>
        let parent = document.querySelector('.elementor-background-slideshow .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>

    1. Luca Mantovani This seems to work just fine:

  2. I tried this but just got a 500 server error.

    I pasted the above code in an html widget right under my slider.

    I did not use the "multiple sliders on the page" info because there is only one.

    When I click "update" in elementor I just get a little popup that says "500 Server Error."

    Is this solution outdated maybe?

    Or am I not understanding something?

    1. That kind of server error is unrelated to what I show in this tutorial... Maybe your host has very low resources? Or maybe you aren't an admin user, and you can't add JavaScript to pages?

  3. This is almost what I was looking for... maybe it can still work I hope!
    How could I get this result random slides when using section background slider?

  4. Hello, as a beginner I have to ask you for help. Problem description:

    My goal is to connect 2 things that were pointed out to me in the Elementor FB group:

    Add individual URLs to an image-slider:
    https://element.how/elementor-image-carousel-links/

    Since the images are advertising banners for a small social site (the following link is test space only), I want the images/banners to appear in random order:
    https://element.how/elementor-slider-random/

    It works fine, 6 images, 6 URLs.
    Only unfortunately, due to the random sorting, the image and URL do not match.

    Can this be combined somehow?
    It would be really great if you or someone else could help me!

    Best regards
