random images

  • # August 24, 2009 at 4:34 pm

    is there a way of adding a script to randomly pick images from a folder. What i need is a new image everytime someone visits the homepage.

    At the moment its setup to output images using a custom field in wordpress but i can not find somthing to get it to pick random photo’s on each visit.

    Any help would be great.

    I use

    < ?php function randomImage ( $array ) { $total = count($array); $call = rand(0,$total-1); return $array[$call]; } $my_images = array ( "com.jpg", "image.jpg", "etc.jpg" ); $img = randomImage($my_images); ?>

    < ?php echo '‘; ?>
