    Random Image Slideshow

    Forgive me if this is in the wrong forum as I am unsure as to whether this should be PHP or Java, or a WP plugin. Basically I need to have a slideshow that picks images from a folder without the need to use arrays as there will be a large amount of images and I need to literally be able to drop images in a folder and they appear in a random order within the slideshow. As you can appreciate with a large amount of images, the code needs to call them as and when needed rather than loading them in at the beginning.

    I have been using Wordpress's nextgen gallery and have been hacking away at a few plugins etc, and the closest I have come is to make WP select a different post with gallery each time creating the illusion that the images are in a different order, however this isn't going to be ideal as its not truly random, and breeds duplicates. If I have to stay away from WP that's fine, uploading to an ftp would be ok.

    Hope someone can point me in the right direction!

    Thank You
