Randy is little PHP script to rotate ads, text snippets, images, web pages, links or anything else that you want to rotate randomly. Randy reads an external file, picks a few random lines from it then inserts those lines into a web page at the point where randy.php is called to use. This was initially written to display text ads in random order but can easily display any HTML content. I've used Randy to display Random hyperlinks Random images in a gallery Random tube clips Random user reviews Random ads Random text snippets and more... Features Random display of data stored within a data file Display of mapped companion data alongside the data chosen randomly from the primary input data file. Data is displayed within an HTML table. The number of columns to display the data within can be configured The number of data items to retrieve can be configured Per item CSS classes e.g. class="randy-1" and class="randy-companion-1" Randy os easy to use. Instructions Download the script (randy.php) Upload it to your server Unzip it Enter the Randy directory and edit the configs in randy.php Add data to data.txt Add data to companion.txt (optional) Call the script into your web page When editing data.txt, put each item of data on its own line within. There must be no empty lines. You can use HTML if you want to. Include Randy in your webpage with a PHP include like this: <?php include("/path-to-randy/randy.php"); ?> Styling Content is displayed within a table which may be styled with CSS. The table has the ID of "randy" and the table data has the class of "randy" + the 'data's ordinal number' e.g class="randy-1" and class="randy-companion-1".
