How to get different images to show every reload

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by WonderingCoder, Nov 13, 2013.

    My website: www.101baseballnews.com is currently in work, and I thought it'd be fun to make it so every time a user reloads the page or switches to a different page on the website, a picture on the header would change. The "101 Baseball News" would remain the same, but just an extra picture..

    How would I do that?

    The only example of this i can think of is from 4chan.org/b (warning: NSFW)

    See how whenever you load the page, the logo up top changes to something different every time? Obviously they made each and every one of those images, but I'd like to do the same for my website.

    i will look into it, thanks a lot.

    one more thing, would you mind looking through my HTML on my header and see why my layout looks like the file below.

    its suppose to be side to side. the 'add gadget' button should be on the right side, directly to the right off the header, not above it. please help

    @WonderingCoder consider moving to cms/wordpress if you are really serious on involving yourself on sites & stuff online. the feature you need is quite common, plenty of options to pick from if you get out of the restrictions blogger offers

    Exactly! Move on to WordPress. Far more easy + bigger user community. 17% of the web it is :D

    I've always leaned towards Wordpress, but I have a couple questions:

    1. I hear blogger has a better ranking with Google, as Google runs the platform. Wordpress isn't as good. True?
    2. Wordpress is ridiculously hard to edit. True?
    3. It's hundreds of dollars to run a website professionally through wordpress.

    Are all of those true?

    1) Obviously they want to sustain their blogger platform, so they will be slightly inclined towards it. It is easier for them to put into Search Index.

    2) Not true at all. You just need to learn basic editing skills. Well there are lots of plugins that will help you.

    3) You will never know professionalism until you move to WordPress :D You just need to get a domain + shared hosting(For small sites) + free template(There are in abundance).

    WordPress! Go for it!!

    Okay, I think I'm leaning towards it more. However, I'm currently studying python, and my brother is a master at it. He does crazy stuff, and can whip out a website with ease. He worked for agilent inc over the summer and wants me to learn python soo I am. Would it be beneficial to wait and just build off of my own server and do everything myself, or will it be hard to get a good SEO ranking and page ranks.

    I've put a lot of work into the blogger platform though, I feel like I shouldn't change. When you went to my website, could you even tell it was a blogger website?

    What is your favorite part about Wordpress? What would be your underlying statement to convince me to move over :)
