  • Rotating banners

    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.

                      I believe (not sure) that you might still be able to outright buy CS6 directly from Adobe, but you had to physically call them and process it somehow over the phone (and they may discourage you every...

                      Thank you, I'm glad you like them.

                      I am considering using a different color for the portrait and the background, but I'm not sure yet how to manage it.

                      These will be produced on an offset printer with a spot resolution of 1200 lpi. The plan is one spot color on each card, with no tints.

                      I decided to give this a go. I think I prefer the original pattern, but the results are here for you to decide for yourself.

                      Unless you find a CS6 the answer would by no. You are at the mercy of your subscription to Adobe.
                      Also no telling how much longer they will support CS6.

                      The fee still works out to about...
