    Is there a way to implement a random display of items in the Showcase settings. Options currently are Create Date, Last Update, Rating, Reaction Score, Comments, Views and Title. When display a bunch of members items, it would be nice to have it rotate around randomly.

    Index Pages like Showcase Index, Category Index pages, Author Index pages etc are paginated, so you can't fetch content randomly as there has to be some kind of structured sort order.

    Showcase Index page and Category page have Widget locations that you can add any widget to, so if you wanted to, you could create a showcase latest items width, full width, sort order random and add that to Showcase Home page above the Items index.

    Better yet would be to use the Modular Index instead of Standard Index for Showcase home (which is a blank slate that you add widgets to). You can make a Portal Style Showcase Home page that way (which is what A LOT of site that use Showcase do).
