I am just tinkering with building a simple web page in html, only text and pictures, one page in notepad. A friend has sent me a simple script that makes the pictures appear in random order, returned the file to me and says it works fine. You can almost guess my problem, I cannot get it to work, various e-mails back and forth etc. Any chance of someone doing me a big favour and having a look at the file for me please.
it's hard to help without seeing the script (don't post it here, by the way), but I'll speculate.
Presumably you have placed the script on the server?
Scripts do things, but they need to be told about specifics - where image files are, for instance, and where to display them when they find them. These specifics are called variables, and your script probably has them. Take a look at the lines, and you may get a clue - you'll see where the script must be edited in order to work.
If you're really stuck, why don't you ask the friend - ask where to put the script, and how to get it working.
Hello again Uploading to a sever would for me be an extra page on my website or I would have to take the current page down. I really do not want to tackle either at the moment because I know I would goof up.
I'll sort it out, my mate keeps telling me it's fine and working but it's no different to me.
Thanks for the clues about looking at the variables in the script. I'll find the answer in the end.
