This thread should be moved in the appropriate place…anyway!

What you need is a script often called Ad-rotator or image randomizer, theirs a few on the net, I never used it, but I hope someone will give you a good reference on it!

You can at least start searching here who knows?

You can accomplish this in many ways. In the most minimal way, you can have a series of HTML pages that are linked in succession and have the user click on each one. On the other end of the spectrum, you can use DHTML or Flash or a Dynamic Ad-Rotater.

I think you need to eloborate a bit on what it is you wish to accomplish, and what capabilities you have.

Or you can do it in php!

Read all files in a directory into an array and simply loop through them page by page. Keep it server side!

Here's an example of a very simple slide show I created:

http://www.naudusfamily.net/howgood/good1.html

To do this, just insert this code inside of the <head> tags:

Code: [ Select ]
<meta http-equiv="Page-Enter" content="blendTrans(Duration=4.0)">
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="TIME;url=NEXTPAGE">
  1. <meta http-equiv="Page-Enter" content="blendTrans(Duration=4.0)">
  2. <meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="TIME;url=NEXTPAGE">


Of course, make sure to replace "TIME" with how long you want that page to be displayed, and "NEXTPAGE" with the URL to the next page int he slide show.

Hope this helps.

I was going to say what cazpian said. you could use flash and what not but arrays are cool cause you can randomize the pictures, making them different each time...or perhaps a different set of pictures for the day of the week etc...

deerfly33....

Go to my main page... http://nunzioweb.com/index.shtml

Take a look at the "Killer Klowns" rotating photos in the top-left of the page there. Would you like something like that? That script uses arrays to randomize the images displayed, exactly as Vladdrac indicated above.

If not, and instead you want something like what CazpianXI posted above, but do not want it to completely change pages, and would rather have it positioned in a specific location on a particular page, then use CazpianXI's example, but within an iframe (inline frame).

Arrays are useful in other ways than randomizing the photo. You can actually skip through individual pictures as shown on http://www.gsv2.com in the gallery. The program is a bit shaggy and I plan on improving it in the future, but if you click on a thumbnail you should be able to see how the program works.

Also, in keeping with what Cazpian said above, and also to show you an example of inline frames using the same concept, visit this page at my site...

http://nunzioweb.com/jukebox.shtml

Click on the "Start the Automated Jukebox" button there. When the jukebox page opens, each song plays for a specific duration (entire length of song), and then advances to the next song, using the exact same method that Cazpian indicated above....

Code: [ Select ]
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="TIME;url=NEXTPAGE">

This is also true if the lyrics and song selection iframes. You can also apply the exact same concept with using photos, along with an iframe(s).

gsv2com's example above is very good too! :thumbsup:

As digitalMedia said above, you can can accomplish this in many ways.
