timed header image rotation

Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

I have a joomla site and I was trying to setup a rotating image based on timing NOT just refreshing the page.

I found this code (i didn't write it) which works to load images but does not switch them with timing. Can someone help me so that it will rotate a new image from the folder every 8 seconds?

*/// Make this the relative path to the images, like "../img" or "random/images/".
// If the images are in the same directory, leave it blank.
$folder = '';

// Space seperated list of extensions, you probably won't have to change this.
$exts = 'jpg jpeg png gif';

$files = array(); $i = -1; // Initialize some variables
if ('' == $folder) $folder = './';

$handle = opendir($folder);
$exts = explode(' ', $exts);
while (false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
foreach($exts as $ext) { // for each extension check the extension
if (preg_match('/.'.$ext.'$/i', $file, $test)) { // faster than ereg, case insensitive
$files[] = $file; // it’s good
closedir($handle); // We’re not using it anymore
mt_srand((double)microtime()*1000000); // seed for PHP < 4.2
$rand = mt_rand(0, $i); // $i was incremented as we went along

header('Location: '.$folder.$files[$rand]); // Voila!
