hi,

#rotate- is nothing but a div id given in html. Just using rotate in css want rotate your image

Go to image editing s/w eg: photoshop rotate your image here using Edit>transforms>rotate 180 degree

#rotator  ---> this name can be changed as your div id
{
background: url(images/rotate.php) no-repeat top center; ---> replace this with your image u have rotated
width: 700px;
height: 150px;
}

Best is choose existing image and rotate using  (image editing software) with same name, it will start working

I can't remember where it was originally posted either, but you can download the script that goes with it here.

http://www.automaticlabs.com/products/rotator

Save it as rotate.php & upload it to the image folder you want to use it on

change #rotator to .rotator if you intend using it more than once on the same page. I use it with mod.php as a related images module.

#rotator
{
  background: url(images/stories/folder/rotate.php) no-repeat top center;
  width: 700px;
  height: 150px;
}

there is no cache & will call a new image on every pageload - if anyone knows how to change the code to only get an image once a day it would be great.

It isn't just backgrounds & images - you can rotate any file type you want with it - handy :)

Hello Brenda, unfortunately when I click on the link you provided it redirects to this http://hivelogic.com/enkoder . Do you by any chance have the rotator script stashed away in your tool box.

Thanks, Dan

Hi Realdude

I went and found you a copy of the original script - I butchered my copy  :laugh:

You can download it here
