    the home page image at the top of the page changes each time you enter the page, how is this done?

    I don’t see a Javascript being called, so perhaps a PHP image rotator? It certainly seems to be a random selection, several refreshes doesn’t seem to be revealing any particular order…

    Matt Mullenweg developed the code for a method to achieve this here: (it’s been improved upon since, but you’ll get all the detail from the site anyhow).

    EDIT – you might try this with the buffs in the Javascript or PHP forums, you’ll certainly get a better answer! ;)

    It will automatically change because of the links on it.

    I’m a huge fan of PHP for this. So much so that I’m moving this topic to the PHP section!

    You can simply use the rand() function to achieve the results. Here’s a really simple explanation: … banner.htm

    Essentially, it’ll be something like this:

    $num = rand(1, 5);

    <img class="classname" alt="" src="images/banner-<?php echo $num; ?>.jpg" />

    I like that a lot – look waaaaaay simpler than any other method I’ve seen. Nice one.
