My first attempt at doing some PHP was less successful than i had hoped…this should be an easy problem to diagnose.
i wanted to add to an existing HTML page a dynamic element, specifically a random photo from a folder of twelve identically sized .gif files. After uploading those files to a /random/ folder, i used a .PHP script located at http://hiveware.com/imagerotator.php which looked amazingly simple.
All i needed to do is change the “random image” folder path in the rotate.php file to read $folder = “/random/”;
(instead of the default), and then add a line of code to the original HTML page to include:
But it doesn’t work…the height, width and alt tags all work but the random image does not load. i even renamed the .HTML file being modified as a .PHP file - still no dice.
Any idea what i am doing wrong? If the 12 images are in a folder called www.bignoize.net/random/, is the path listed above for the random.php file correct?
Any help greatly appreciated =)
