Help:Random page

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If you are new to Wikipedia and just want to explore, or if you don't know where you want to go, the Simple English Wikipedia has a random page feature that takes you to any one of the pages on this wiki. In most cases, you would want to see any article. This is easily done: just type "Special:Random" in the box at the top of the page where you normally type an article name. You will be taken directly to a random article page without having to do anything else.

Sometimes, you may want to go to a random talk page, user page, or MediaWiki page. Wikipedia lets you do this, too. Just add the type of page you want to see after Special:Random, with a slash in between. For example, Special:Random/Help will take you to a random page in the Help namespace; Special:Random/Category will show the contents of a random category, and so on.
