Greetings,

Have a bit of a challenge here, at least it has been for me... lol.

I have a site that I would like the ability to have a different background for each month. The core of the theme that I am using is CSS, so I have directed the CSS to look for the PHP file when looking for the background. The current PHP file selects a random image from the current folder in which it resides (Found on the internet). It's not mine but is freely available for download on the internet and is as follows:

Code:
<?php

	ABOUT
	This PHP script will randomly select an image file from a
	folder of images on your webserver.  You can then link to it
	as you would any standard image file and you'll see a random
	image each time you reload.
	
	When you want to add or remove images from the rotation-pool,
	just add or remove them from the image rotation folder.


	VERSION CHANGES
	Version 1.0
		- Release version
	
	Version 1.5
		- Tweaked a few boring bugs
	
	Version 2.0
		- Complete rewrite from the ground-up
		- Made it clearer where to make modifications
		- Made it easier to specify/change the rotation-folder
		- Made it easier to specify/change supported image types
		- Wrote better instructions and info (you're them reading now)
		- Significant speed improvements
		- More error checking
		- Cleaner code (albeit more PHP-specific)
		- Better/faster random number generation and file-type parsing
		- Added a feature where the image to display can be specified
		- Added a cool feature where, if an error occurs (such as no
		  images being found in the specified folder) *and* you're
		  lucky enough to have the GD libraries compiled into PHP on
		  your webserver, we generate a replacement "error image" on
		  the fly.
		
    Version 2.1
        - Updated a potential security flaw when value-matching
          filenames

    Version 2.2
        - Updated a few more potential security issues
        - Optimized the code a bit.
        - Expanded the doc for adding new mime/image types.

        Thanks to faithful ALA reader Justin Greer for
        lots of good tips and solid code contribution!


	INSTRUCTIONS
	1. Modify the $folder setting in the configuration section below.
	2. Add image types if needed (most users can ignore that part).
	3. Upload this file (rotate.php) to your webserver.  I recommend
	   uploading it to the same folder as your images.
	4. Link to the file as you would any normal image file, like this:

			<img src="http://example.com/rotate.php">

	5. You can also specify the image to display like this:

			<img src="http://example.com/rotate.php?img=gorilla.jpg">
		
		This would specify that an image named "gorilla.jpg" located
		in the image-rotation folder should be displayed.
	
	That's it, you're done.

*/




/* ------------------------- CONFIGURATION -----------------------


	Set $folder to the full path to the location of your images.
	For example: $folder = '/user/me/example.com/images/';
	If the rotate.php file will be in the same folder as your
	images then you should leave it set to $folder = '.';

*/


	$folder = '.';


/*	

	Most users can safely ignore this part.  If you're a programmer,
	keep reading, if not, you're done.  Go get some coffee.

    If you'd like to enable additional image types other than
	gif, jpg, and png, add a duplicate line to the section below
	for the new image type.
	
	Add the new file-type, single-quoted, inside brackets.
	
	Add the mime-type to be sent to the browser, also single-quoted,
	after the equal sign.
	
	For example:
	
	PDF Files:

		$extList['pdf'] = 'application/pdf';
	
    CSS Files:

        $extList['css'] = 'text/css';

    You can even serve up random HTML files:

	    $extList['html'] = 'text/html';
	    $extList['htm'] = 'text/html';

    Just be sure your mime-type definition is correct!

*/

    $extList = array();
	$extList['gif'] = 'image/gif';
	$extList['jpg'] = 'image/jpeg';
	$extList['jpeg'] = 'image/jpeg';
	$extList['png'] = 'image/png';
	

// You don't need to edit anything after this point.


// --------------------- END CONFIGURATION -----------------------

$img = null;

if (substr($folder,-1) != '/') {
	$folder = $folder.'/';
}

if (isset($_GET['img'])) {
	$imageInfo = pathinfo($_GET['img']);
	if (
	    isset( $extList[ strtolower( $imageInfo['extension'] ) ] ) &&
        file_exists( $folder.$imageInfo['basename'] )

	while ( false !== ( $file = readdir($handle) ) ) {

		if (
		    isset( $extList[ strtolower( $file_info['extension'] ) ] )
		) {
			$fileList[] = $file;
		}
	}
	closedir($handle);

	if (count($fileList) > 0) {
		$imageNumber = time() % count($fileList);
		$img = $folder.$fileList[$imageNumber];
	}
}

if ($img!=null) {
	$imageInfo = pathinfo($img);
	$contentType = 'Content-type: '.$extList[ $imageInfo['extension'] ];
	header ($contentType);
	readfile($img);
} else {
	if ( function_exists('imagecreate') ) {

		$im = @imagecreate (100, 100)
		    or die ("Cannot initialize new GD image stream");
		$background_color = imagecolorallocate ($im, 255, 255, 255);
		$text_color = imagecolorallocate ($im, 0,0,0);
		imagestring ($im, 2, 5, 5,  "IMAGE ERROR", $text_color);

		imagedestroy($im);

I have been attempting multiple ways to accomplish the desired result but fail at each attempt. Sooooo... I am asking for a little help if there is anyone smarter then I, which isn't hard, to possibly lend me a hand.... Here is the latest attempt :

Code:
<?php

//today and Image to use per today

$month = date('m');
print('$month');

if($month == 01) {
$image = "01.jpg";
}
elseif($month == '02') {
$image = "02.jpg";
}
elseif($month == 03) {
$image = "03.jpg";
}
elseif($month == 04) {
$image = "04.jpg";
}
elseif($month == '05') {
$image = "05.jpg";
}
elseif($month == 06) {
$image = "06.jpg";
}
elseif($month == 07) {
$image = "07.jpg";
}
elseif($month == 08) {
$image = "08.jpg";
}
elseif($month == 09) {
$image = "09.jpg";
}
elseif($month == 10) {
$image = "10.jpg";
}
elseif($month == 11) {
$image = "11.jpg";
}
else($month == 12) {
$image = "12.jpg";
}

?>
I would greatly appreciate any/all assistance with this issue....Thank you!!!
