So i found the code below from another question on here, it displays a list of titles from a custom post type, my question is, How do i get the list to randomize?

      <?php
 $queryObject = new WP_Query( 'post_type=announcements&posts_per_page=5' );
 // The Loop!if ($queryObject->have_posts()) {
?>
<ul>
<?php
while ($queryObject->have_posts()) {
    $queryObject->the_post();
    ?>

    <li><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li>
<?php
}
?>
</ul>
<?php
 }
 ?>

WP_Query has an orderby property which can be set to rand. If you change your query string to 'post_type=announcements&posts_per_page=5&orderby=rand' you should be good to go. You might want to take the time to read through the whole documentation for WP_Query, just so you're familiar with its capabilities.
