    Background Changer

    I did a simple web page for my wife that is being hosted on a Windows server. She made me ... that's right ... made me include a non-repeat background image. Now she wants the site to change the background image automatically. Like I know how to do that, if it's possible at all. Is it? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Re: Background Changer

    What drives the automation? Time? Date? Random? Number of visits?
    And change to what, and how many choices/changes?

    Re: Background Changer

    The site (http://www.affirmationstoheal.com) basically has five pages. The ones in Spanish are basically translations of the ones in English. She would like the background to change every time one of the pages is hit. With the traffic we are getting <img src=/S/anigrin.gif border=0 alt=anigrin width=19 height=19> this will probably occur every six months but I would like her to have it if it's possible. Thanks for taking the time!

    PS: I would limit the images to 5.

    Re: Background Changer

    The people who built our firm's home page included a script that changes the welcome image each time you reload. Or should I say, the image is chosen randomly, so it could be the same twice in a row but usually isn't. The script has the following credit:

    You can see it here in action if you like: http://www.carrferrell.com.

    Thanks to jscher2000 for the info. Although I could not find something that really did what I was looking for it was a great opportunity to learn a lot. Thanks, again!
