    Very simple rotate text?

    hi

    I've been searching the horribly-constructed script sites around for literally an hour and found nothing.

    All I'm after is a small piece of code that randomly displays a piece of text (only need 2) each time the user reloads/visits my site.

    So e.g. "text 1" and "text 2" are displayed randomly each time the website is visited.

    Anyone kind enough to point me to some code?

    cheers

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Random text</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    #ran1,#ran2{display:none;}
    </style>
    <script type="text/javascript" >
    window.onload=function(){
    var wch=(Math.floor(Math.random()*2)+1);
    document.getElementById('ran'+wch).style.display='inline';
    }
    </script>
    </head>

    <body>
    <p id="randomP">
    <span id="ran1">First Random Selection</span>
    <span id="ran2">Second Random Selection</span>
    </p>
    </body>

    If you are only interested in displaying 1 of 2 pieces of text, then simply:

    obj.innerHTML = Math.random() > .5 ? text1 : text2;

    should do the trick

    if you need more than two, then have a look at this:

    Thumbs up

    I found the code for this thread http://javascript.internet.com/misce...xt-rotate.html
    provided by 'mrhoo' but I don't have any way to contact other than this forum.

    I wanted to offer a suggested improvement for his consideration:
    PHP Code:
    <html>
    <
    head>
    <
    title>Quote of the Day</title>
    <!-- 
    modified fromhttp://javascript.internet.com/miscellaneous/simple-text-rotate.html -->

    <style type="text/css">
      
    #QOD { font-weight: bold; font-size: 1.5em; color: #ff0000; }
    </style>

    <
    script type="text/javascript">
    var 
    QofD = new Array(
      
    'If it ain\'t broke. Get a bigger hammer.'
      
    'Change is inevitable; progress is optional.',
      
    'Do not attribute any action to malice that can be explained by stupidity.',
      
    'The box said "Requires Windows 95, NT, or better", so I installed Linux.',
      
    'You never get too old to learn a new way of being stupid!',
      
    'If at first you don\'t succeed, you\'re running about average.',
      
    'Mind over Matter: If you don\'t mind, it don\'t matter.',
    '');

    function 
    setQofD() {
      var 
    Math.floor(Math.random()*(QofD.length-1));
      
    document.getElementById('QOD').innerHTML QofD[r];
    }
    </
    script>

    </
    head>
    <
    body onLoad="setQofD()">
    <
    strong>Quote of the Day:</strong> <span id="QOD"></span>
    <
    br />
    </
    body>
    </
    html
    Simplifies the code a bit for me, especially in the CSS section.

    I tried this code:

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript" >
    window.onload=function(){	
    var wch=(Math.floor(Math.random()*2)+1);	
    document.getElementById('ran'+wch).style.display='inline';
    
    <span id="ran1">First Random Selection</span>
    <span id="ran2">Second Random Selection</span>
    and it worked with text.
    But what will i have to do to insert div tags instead of text.

    Instead of "First Random Selection" I want to insert
    Code:
    <div id='ads_code_4' style='display:none;'>
    <!-- MY Code -->
    </div>
       <script language="JavaScript">
        div1 = document.getElementById('adspace4');
        div2 = document.getElementById('ads_code_4');
        div1.innerHTML = div2.innerHTML;
        div2.innerHTML = "";
       </script>
    Can that be done?
