Add image rotating script to a wordpress page?

    Hello!

    There is a simple javascript called magicimage (http://www.echochrist.com/magicimage.php).

    I know how this code gets embedded into an html page because there is an example .html file and here is its content:

    <html>
    <HEAD>
    
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
    
    <script
    		language="JavaScript"
    		src="magicimage.js"
    		type="text/javascript">
    </script>
    
    </HEAD>
    
    <BODY>
    
    <table width="150" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
      <tr>
        <td><div id="MagicImage"></div></td>
      </tr>
    </table>
    
    </div>
    <p> </p>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    But can someone tell me how and where do I add this code to a wordpress page to make the script work?

    Thanks

    Or…

    This plugin

    It’s a much less appealing option than what esmi mentioned above… but gives you a graphical interface for including scripts only on certain pages.

    I read this page http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_enqueue_script but I didn’t get a clue on how to exactly do this in my case.

    There is a file magicimage.js that I need to upload to the server then if it was a simple html page I would put this

    <script
    		language="JavaScript"
    		src="magicimage.js"
    		type="text/javascript">
    </script>

    between head tags and then

    <table width="150" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
      <tr>
        <td><div id="MagicImage"></div></td>
      </tr>
    </table>

    between body tags to indicate where exactly the script must appear in my post, but in a case of wordpress, if i want this random images to show just inside my post (not on the sidebar and not in the footer) what exact code do I need to use and where to put it? I tried lot of things but I cannot figure out the hack on my own.

    Can someone tell me the exact code please?

    You can edit your header.php template and place the script within the head tags. The only problem I see here is if you upgrade wp you may have to edit php file over again.
