Hello,

I want a PHP function to return a 10 digit hash that only contains numbers.  I cannot use MD5 because it returns the letters a through d as well as numbers.

You can use crc32: http://php.net/manual/en/function.crc32.php
printf('%u', crc32($text));

have you tried:

$hash = rand(1000000000,9999999999);
