    It took me a few seconds of looking before I saw the SB in the logo. Instead, I focused right in on the white shape, which, to me, looks sort of like the ghost of Mickey Mouse or, maybe, the torso of...

    Location can make a huge difference, where are you located?

    Are you okay with off-shoring?

    Hi,

    I am looking to have the banners on this website at the top of the page change every-time the page is refreshed,

    http://www.jhooakley.com/

    Is there an easy way to do this... Bearing in mind web coding is not my fortay.



    Thanks!

    You can do it with PHP or Javascript. The dead easiest way to do it is to number your images, like banner1.jpg banner2.jpg banner3.jpg and have JS or PHP choose a random number between 1 and 3.

    PHP I'd favor because it'll work before the page is loaded and if JS is turned off.

    Code:
    <img src="/img/banner<?php echo rand(1,3); ?>.jpg" alt="">

            Broke or just cheap? Read my list of free open source alternatives to Adobe Creative Suite software.

                  Code:
                  <?php 
                  
                  /* files to rotate */
                  $files = array('aaa.gif','bbb.gif','ccc.gif','ddd.swf','fgtr.swf');
                  
                  /* current file */
                  $file = isset($_COOKIE['file']) && in_array($_COOKIE['file'],$files)?$_COOKIE['file']:null;
                  
                  /* remove previous file shown */
                  if($file !== null) {
                  	$filesIndex = array_search($file,$files);
                  	array_splice($files,$filesIndex,1);
                  }
                  
                  /* choose a new file to show */
                  $filesIndex = array_rand($files,1);
                  $file = $files[$filesIndex];
                  
                  // save file to cookie
                  setcookie('file',$file);
                  
                  // get the files extension to determine how to show it
                  $filesExtension = strrpos($file,'.') === false?'':substr($file,(strrpos($file,'.')+1));
                  
                  // alternate display implementation for an image and swf
                  switch($filesExtension) {
                  	case 'swf':
                  		echo "<p>Showing Flash: $file</p>";
                  		break;
                  	
                  	default:
                  		echo "<p>Showing Image: $file</p>";
                  }
                  ?>
                  Test it out to see what it does and let me know if that is what your after.

                  If it is then I'll show you next step once your code is posted.
