Hey I went through a few of the suggestions for having random images show up on the blog and I couldnt find anything that fit my needs. I found this really simple scrcipt you can use.


* Name your images 1.jpg, 2.jpg etc.
* Add this line to your page where you want the images to
* appear: <?php include "randomimage.php"; ?>
// Change this to the total number of images in the folder
$total = "11";
// Change to the type of files to use eg. .jpg or .gif
$file_type = ".jpg";
// Change to the location of the folder containing the images
$image_folder = "images/random";
// You do not need to edit below this line
$start = "1";
$random = mt_rand($start, $total);
$image_name = $random . $file_type;
echo "<img src=\"$image_folder/$image_name\" alt=\"$image_name\" />";

i am no php guru, just trying to give back a little.
