How to have a random avatar in Lunarforums
« on: October 10, 2003, 11:41:02 AM »
I just figured out how to have an Avatar on Lunarforums, and then I figured out that I can have it be a random image as well.  On my website homepage, I have random photos each time a person reloads the page, so I already had a cgi script to do this (it can be found at nms Scripts under Other Scripts with the name "Random Image")

Once you install the script and get it to work on an html page, use the same code to paste into your Avatar image section in Lunarforums (for example, I pasted "http://www.bestgarden.net/cgi-bin/Avatar.cgi" instead of a jpg/gif listed on my website).  If you would like to do this, too, and can't quite understand how to do the install/configuration of the script, please let me know and I will try to assist.

I know that a random image Avatar might not appeal to some, but it correlates with the gist of my homepage, so I thought it would look nice.  Let me know what you think.

Have a Blessed Day

Hehehe, on my own forum I have a dynamic avatar as well. I've created  a small script that actually copies the avatar from the poster right above me, mirrors and inverts it (so it's not exactly the same). A lot of members where pretty amazed! :D

I like what you have done with your avatar. Simple but very good.

Kata, how do those sites work? I've seen them before and someone tried to explain to me how they did it, but it didn't make any sense to me.

Since I don't want to spoil it for other people here that see it, I'll PM you guys how it works (even though it goes against the magic rules of secrecy!)

It's a script that used to be somewhat popular :)

I used to see it on different websites a couple years back but i've never been able to find the script. So if you wanna share, i'd love you forever ;)
