• Resolved pwred


    I would like to sort users randomly on the Member Directory. Unfortunately, I noticed, that when users are sorted “randomly”, the sorting is saved and will never be changed again. I would prefer to sort users randomly each time again when a user reloads the page because it is pretty useless for me like it is right now because a user would see just the same users the whole time. I saw a post like mine a year ago, but nothing has changed since then. Is it that difficult to add this option? Or can I do this via some changes in the code?

    Thank you very much!

    Or is it possible to just reset it manually? So like I click a button on admin and all users get shuffled again?

    Hi @pwred

    You can try this code snippet to re-shuffle the member directory results randomly on page load:

        if( ! function_exists("um_is_session_started") ) return;
        if ( um_is_session_started() === false ) {
        unset( $_SESSION['um_member_directory_seed'] );

    You can add the above code snippets to your theme’s functions.php file or use the Code Snippets plugin to run your code.
