    Default Re: Random generation of id

    you could append a character to a Math.floor((Math.random() * [any number]) + [10000]);

    explanation:
    the 10000 will make sure that the number is always 5 digits.

    ex:
    Math.floor((Math.random() * 2323) + 10000);

    Happy coding!

    --- Update ---

    its better if you put the same number of digits to [any number], like if you want 5 digits you can do Math.floor((Math.random() * 12345) + 10000);
