Hey,

Here is the only way to generate a random (anything) from an SQL database. All other ways would require additional PHP functionality

mysql_query("SELECT * FROM ".$table_prefix."postmeta LEFT OUTER JOIN ".$table_prefix."posts ON ".$table_prefix."postmeta.post_id = ".$table_prefix."posts.id WHERE ".$table_prefix."postmeta.meta_key='featured' ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 4");
