The random sorting feature allows users to arbitrarily shuffle the order of displayed text and media files. It increases the chance of every image being viewed equally by eliminating biases that could come from the order created by any specific parameter.
In addition to random sorting, the Contest Gallery WordPress plugin has several other sorting options: date, rating, and comments. Date orders images by the ones that have been submitted first. Rating and comments help find out the most popular and discussed files.
But the random sorting option can add a flavor of surprise and excitement for gallery visitors. It will enable visitors to find some media files they may have missed due to using any of the three sorting options described above. This can lead to increased engagement and participation in the contest.
