Did I make this up?  
I thought I had seen a journal that had rotating header images. If you visited it two or three times, the header was different each time. Maybe it only rotated between 2 header images but I thought it changed when the page was refreshed.

Can you do that on LJ? Or did I make it up? I tried the FAQ but it doesn't list a category that is likely to give me the answer. Or I simply can't understand the questions, much less the answers.

Did I make it up?

You are so good to me!!! I can't believe you were able to find the instructions by searching. My searches always fail. This is so exciting. Thank you so so much!!!!!

IKR? The tutorial in her reply no longer works but I think I found one that does. When I get back home I'll post the new link if it works - the tutorial I mean.

http://songkissed.livejournal.com/80939.html - But basically it is this:

1) Download the PHP file - http://www.mediafire.com/?uos15ksbjuiotv5

2) Upload the PHP file plus your pics into a file on your server

3) Use the PHP addy in the CSS codes in place of the addy you have now.

I had the pics I wanted for the moment and it only took a few minutes to finish. I did have to resize 3 of the headers so they were all the same.

I've seen journals with rotating headers so you didn't make it up.
The Huntresshuntress69 on May 19th, 2012 06:34 pm (UTC)
It works, as long as you have an external server.
The Huntresshuntress69 on May 19th, 2012 06:33 pm (UTC)
I just set it up and it works - I think. Now I have to add more headers and make them all the same size.

Did you Find a new tutorial? The one simplyn2deep included is outdated.
The Huntresshuntress69 on May 19th, 2012 06:56 pm (UTC)
Posted in comment a few comments up.

Just checked you journal and it looks great! I refreshed the page a few times and it kept changing.

All of my headers are the same size so all I'd need is the external server to set it up.

Thanks for the link!

Glad I could find it.

Well, I'm apparently incapable of following directions. I created an account on freehostia like the tutorial suggested. But I cannot get it to work. I'm apparently hopeless! Well, not totally hopeless. Technologically challenged. ~sigh
