There are many practical and frequently used methods requiring a random record to be called. For instance, when you see “featured profiles” or random customer comments on a website, they are most likely using a function to call a random record.
In addition, this function can allow you to display data in a random order.
Here’s how it works:
SELECT field_1, field_2, field_3, field_4 FROM table_name WHERE parameter = 1 ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 1
It’s that simple. Please post your feedback!
