Hi!

Only with a minor modification to the code, there is not other way unfortunately.

If you open up the wp-content/plugins/ajax-search-pro/includes/search/search_content.class.php file and scroll down to line 607, where you should see this:

ORDER BY priority DESC, relevance DESC, " . $wpdb->posts . "." . $orderby . "

change that line to:

ORDER BY RAND()

That should do it.

Please not that this solution is not update-proof, so once you update, you need to do this again. Also, make sure to do tests with a few phrases, random ordering might be a resource-heavy operation in some cases.

Best,
