Randomly Show Drupal Content or Users in Views

One of our members wanted to randomly sort their Views results.

Fortunately, because random sorting is a core Views feature, it is very easy to do

  • Go Structure > Views > Add new view. In this example, I'm going to randomly sort my site's user profiles:
Creating a Drupal view with a random sort criteria
  • Click "Add" next to "Sort Criteria":
Adding a random sort criteria to Drupal views
  • Search for the setting, "Global: Random".
  • Click "Apply (All displays)" twice.
Global: Random as a Drupal sort criteria in Views
  • Save your view.
  • Every time you see the view in action, it will now sort randomly from all the available users or content.
