Use the PHP shuffle() function

You can use the PHP shuffle() function to randomly shuffle the order of the elements or values in an array. The shuffle() function returns FALSE on failure.

Let's try out the following example to understand how this function basically works:

<?php
// Creating an array containing a range of elements
$numbers = range(1, 10);
 
// Randomize the order of array items
shuffle($numbers);
foreach ($numbers as $value){
    echo "$value" . "<br>";
}
?>
