Random Background Image each time a site is loaded.
Hi every one!
A client has asked me to do a site that loads a random background image each time on load, Now ultimately after I get the random image loading each time the site comes up I would like to get that image to dynamically be full size in the back ground.
I'm thinking that I'm going to get that taken care of before I move on to the full screen part, let me know your thoughts on that plan of action.
Any way I'm having a bit of a hard time so far here is my development site, as you can see there are no background images showing up at this point, let alone random:
Now let me share the source material that I'm using to get to this point so far, I I'm using tread from StackOverFlow to help me with the JS and so on:
Like I said none of my background images are showing up and I'm a bit stumped at present on whats not working for me. Any additional assistance would be VERY appreciated!
Well, here is an isolated example of how it could be done:
You will need to place your image directory relative to the page requesting the images (unless you prepend / to the images path):
<meta charset="utf-8" />
window.onload = (function()
var numberOfBackGroundImages = 8;
document.getElementsByTagName('body').style.backgroundImage = 'url(images/' + Math.ceil(Math.random() * numberOfBackGroundImages) + '.jpg)';
