On a few other forums I have mine so it does - what you need is a random image generator, which you just drop into the directory with the pictures you want in. However, you will need a proper host with php support, and this forum doesn't allow html in sig/avatar (both of which I have on rotating on some other forums).

you need some webspace which handles PHP, stick this code in a file called index.php and put it in a directory with your sigs, then link to that file in you sig
Code:
<?php
ob_start( 'ob_gzhandler' );
srand( time() );
$files = array();
if ($dir = @opendir(".")) {
while (($file = readdir($dir)) !== false) {
if ( eregi( '.(jpg|gif)$', $file ) ) {
$files[] = $file;
}
} 
closedir($dir);
}
$file = $files[rand() % sizeof( $files )];

if ( eregi( '.jpg$', $file ) ) {
header( "Content-Type: image/jpeg" );
} else {
header( "Content-Type: image/gif" );
}
header( "Content-Length: " . filesize( $file ) );
readfile( $file );
?>

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
