    Question Loading a different image each time?

    Hi,
    I'm a newbie, i'm just wondering if there is anyway to load a different image randomly each time you load the page? It's for a background image on the site and is controlled by the css. I have 5 different images and this is the code

    Code:
    	#slider:before {
    		background-image: url(../images/backgrounds/background_01.jpg);
    	}
    	
    	#page-title:before {
    		background-image: url(../images/backgrounds/background_01.jpg);
    	}
    	
    	footer:before {
    		background-image: url(../images/backgrounds/background_01.jpg);
    	}
    If anyone could help me asap that would be great!

    Thanks,
    Addison :-)

    You can do it with CSS. You'll need some software - either JavaScript or a server-based script. Try searching on "javascript random image" and you should find something you can use.

    You could create several classes (or whatsoever) with the same name but different prefix (number) and use a javascript to random a number from the range your use.

    For example: create classes bg1, bg2, bg3, bg4 and have a javascript put a random number in a variabele between 1 and 4.
    Then name the class of the div bg + javascript variable.

    I don't think you're able to do this with just CSS. You will need some sort of scripting language.

    This is how simple it really can be:

    //code:
    <?php
    $panel = rand(1,12);
    echo
    "<div id=\"mainindex\" style=\"height: 264px; width:430px; background-image:url('login_bg".$panel.".jpg'); text-align:center;\">";
    ?>
    //End of code.

    I took that directly from a page where I randomly have a different one of 12 images
    as the background to the div "mainindex" every time a user opens the page.
    The images are: login_bg1.jpg,login_bg2.jpg,login_bg3.jpg, etc... to... login_bg12.jpg
    The images are in the same directory as my page file so I don't have to do a full path.

    Php is a beautiful thing.

    I love php as well, but there is a set-up overhead that should be mentioned. You can't test php code in a browser, you have to set up a local host. I use wamp server, it's dead easy to set up and use.

    Ok - the issue depends on multiple things

    only might happen with an empty cache
    depends on the loading speed of font-awesome & bootsrap.

    So here it is:

    <div class="page-header clearfix">
    <a href="/" class="logo pull-left"">
    <img src="images/logo.png" height="62" width="232" alt="">
    </a>
    Hope that helps you.
