Thread: How can I get HTML/CSS to display a randomly selected image?

  1. #1

    How can I get HTML/CSS to display a randomly selected image?

    Hi guys,

    I'm using Dreamweaver MX 2004 to create an HTML website.

    I have a series of header images in a folder all with the same dimensions. What I want to be able to do is have one of these images, selected at random, to appear in a certain place everytime a new page is loaded.

    From what I know, I believe this may be possible using CSS?

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you very much and I hope to hear from you.

    All the best,

    you need to either use something server-side like php or asp, or something client-side like javascript. css and html alone won't do it.

    using javascript I would place the images in an array and then randomly select one from the array

    try here for help

    but it can't be done with just CSS, using Javascript though does make it DHTML so if you know HTML & CSS, learn javascript and it means you can add DHTML to your CV...2 for 1
