Display Random Images on Your Site

While developing a Web site for a client, I encountered a problem with server-side includes (SSI) and the site host. My client wanted the pictures of her sample products on the home page to change each time a visitor accessed the page.

The result is this short script that chooses one of the images to show on a random basis each time the page is loaded. Here is the script:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
<!--
Sub Window_OnLoad
   Dim arrPic, intPic
   Randomize
   intPic = Fix(Rnd * 7)
   arrPic = Array("mink22", "minklamb", "rabbit24", "rabbit16", "mink2215",
   "lambeaver", "cameralrabbit23")
   Show.src = "bears/" & arrPic(intPic) & ".jpg"
End Sub
-->
</SCRIPT>

And then in the body of the page, I placed the following code:

<A HREF="samples.html">
<IMG NAME="Show" border=0 alt="Don't you want one?">
</A>

This script could easily be adapted for more than just images. Because I had seven images, I considered using the Weekday function to change the image on a daily basis. This would have looked like:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
<!--
Sub Window_OnLoad
   Dim arrPic, intPic
   intPic = Weekday(1)
   arrPic = Array("mink22", "minklamb", "rabbit24", "rabbit16", "mink2215",
   "lambeaver", "cameralrabbit23")
   Show.src = "bears/" & arrPic(intPic) & ".jpg"
End Sub
-->
</SCRIPT>
