Banners and Time

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Roy Schestowitz, Jan 5, 2005.

  1. I have been trying out Entropy Banner which is a CGI banner rotator, but it
    cannot provide me with what I ideally need. Is there a way of displaying
    different banners at different times of the day (without JavaScript
    preferably)?

    Thanks,
    Roy

    Hi Roy,

    what about PHP? Something like this

    Look at http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Ad_Management/

    for PHP Banner rotators.

    Kind regards
    Franky

    That's an excellent and extensive source. I still can't find anything that
    makes mentioning of _time_. I could implement that myself, but there must
    be something out there already. I want to display a different banner at
    different times of the day and suit it for different parts of the world.

    I could take GMT time and then have a switch case... maybe I'll give it a go
    myself, but it's worth re-using... not worth the time otherwise because
    it's a kitschy idea...

    Thanks,
    Roy

    Hi Roy,

    everything is possible. But you have to find a way doing it. So do you
    decide to use PHP? Maybe i could help you in developing such a script.

    The first thing is, you do a bit brainstorming what this script is all
    about. What features have to be included. If you still need help, just
    email me.

    Kind regards
    Franky

    Can you run XSSI on your server? How does something like the following
    (untested)

    <!--config timefmt="%H" -->
    <!--if expr "\"$DATE_LOCAL\" < 6" -->
    <IMG SRC="asleep.jpg">
    <!--elif expr "\"$DATE_LOCAL\" < 22" & -->
    <IMG SRC="awake.jpg">
    <!--else -->
    <IMG SRC="asleep.jpg">
    <!--endif -->

    work?

    i.e. between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. local time a picture referring to a state of
    being up is displayed, else a picture of being asleep...?
