Ok, me again Smile

A site I work on currently has an advertising block which displays one of the clients adverts randomly.

We have all the adverts in one folder, and they are all hosted locally.

We have new clients wanting to advertise, but a lot of our new clients want to be able to see their advert on every page load.

What I am looking at doing, is having a block that will display display all our banners in a column, which are all clickable, but re order them on every page load which should eliminate any "I want to be at the top" arguments.

I understand all the usual, maximum exposure for single ads, pushing the length of the page down and so on, but our sponsors are putting pressure on us to display adverts in this way.

Question is, can a nuke block re order a load of images and keep the hyper links intact?

If so, does anyone know of a block? Or would anyone create one or aid me in doing so?

Any help is greatly appreciated as always!

Just to be clear, are you saying that you need a block like my Recommended Sites block on my home page but you simply need to randomly change the order?

Thats the one raven,

I don't need the scrolling, as I intend on having all banners lined up one under the other.

I just need the order they are displayed in being random on each page load.

P.S. Is the recommended sites block available for download? Or does it come in the RN distro?

Thanks for the reply!

If it makes things any easier on this, I don't need the block to fetch all the images from a specific folder.

I have written a crude block to display all the images with hyperlinks, and I dont have a problem in adding in more to the code as and when they sponsor the site.

It;s just the random bit thats beyond me Smile

Code:


<?php

if (eregi('block-adverts.php', $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'])) {
    Header('Location: index.php');
    die();
}


$content  = "<center>";
$content .= "<p><a href=\"http://yorkshirekoi.co.uk/_launch.php?id=170\" target=\"_blank\"><img src=\"/images/advertising/mholmesmain11-07.jpg\"></a></p>";
$content .= "<br>";
$content .= "<p><a href=\"http://www.selectivekoisales.co.uk/\" target=\"_blank\"><img src=\"/images/advertising/SELECTIVEKOI11-07.jpg\"></a></p>";
$content .= "<br>";
$content .= "<p><a href=\"http://www.absolute-koi.com\" target=\"_blank\"><img src=\"/images/0308.gif\"></a></p>";
$content .= "<br>";
$content .= "<p><a href=\"http://bkksys.co.uk\" target=\"_blank\"><img src=\"/images/koimastersbanner.jpg\"></a></p>";
$content .= "<br>";
$content .= "<p><a href=\"http://www.koiplus.com\" target=\"_blank\"><img src=\"/images/koiplus140408.JPG\"></a></p>";
$content .= "</center>";
$content .= "<br>";
$content .= "<p><font size=\"10\"> Interested in becoming a sponsor? click <a href=\"http://bkksys.co.uk/modules.php?name=Advertising\">HERE</a>.</p></font>";

I think you will need a bit of javascript, or use PHP to do it.

I found this links which may help: Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!
