everytime i use my current avatar on a forum, i get tons of pms "how do you do that" etc. etc..

so im going to beat the punch this time becuase its hella annoying..

For those of you who would like to do the same with some different images heres how...

first create a .htaccess file
insert this..

AddType application/x-httpd-php .jpg
then open wordpad or notepad

paste this in

<?php
$dh = opendir(".");
while (false !== ($file = readdir($dh)))
{
if (preg_match('/.jpg$/i', $file) and $file != "avatar.jpg") // sanning for .jpg files only and stopping avatar.jpg being loaded (you will run into errors if this isnt here)
{
$filelist[] = $file;
}
}

srand((double)microtime()*1000000);
$picnum = rand(0, sizeof($filelist) - 1);

header("Location: " . $filelist[$picnum]);

closedir($dh);
?>
save that as avatar.jpg

then put both those in the same directory as all the images you want, upload them to your website and link your avatar to

www.yoursite.com/avatar/avatar.jpg

just an example you might make the directory whatever but basically link back to avatar.jpg when its on the web..
make the the .htaccess file has no exstensions (.txt, .rtf, etc. etc.)

I suggest you PM Drew and maybe he can help you. However, I dont think he comes here often so you might want to go to his site which is called the HerpForum. Just a suggestion...

huh?

I want a new avatar with multipul images, I also remember this post and so thought I would ask for it to be explained since I tried and got stuck "first create a .htaccess file" here as I have no idea what this type of file is, or how to get one.
