I would like to find a plug-in or randomizing code that could:
In Column B, at the top, insert a H4 "Breaking News", and below that pull in a random photo from a directory I designate (already sized to 150px wide) followed by its caption in bold; perhaps pulling from a simple to edit text file.
Similar visually to what is at the top of Column A now - although this is static.
I use Mike's Journalized Theme. I'm not a PHP genius. And, if possible, I'd really like to have two separate directories of photos and captions (one for my "Breaking News" random photos, and one for another section called "What I'm Listening To".
Like a simple script that would be "Random1.php" and "Random2.php"
Help? I'll bet there's already something out there - I can find random text (but no HTML calls like I'd need to import the photo image) or random image galleries, but usually without a caption or tied to Gallery, which I don't want to install. Thoughts? Hopes? Dreams?
