Ever since I redesigned my blog, I’ve been getting quite a few questions about the banner rotation script at the top of the page. I used a free script called Magic Image and it is provided by EchoChrist.com.
Unlike a lot of banner rotation scripts, you are not restricted to one banner size within a given space. So if you want to rotate both 120×240 banners and 120×600 banners in the same space, you are free to do that.
You can also select how many seconds the banners will display and there is an optional text description for each banner.
One feature I wish it had is the option to shuffle the banners. You must show the banners in the same order every time the page loads. The only way to change the order is to manually change them in the script.
That’s really the only downside to Magic Image. It’s very easy to setup and I’ve provided the instructions below…
1) Download it.
2) Edit the magicimage.js file (there are instructions in the script)
3) Upload the banners and magicimage.js file to your server
4) Add the following lines of code inside the <head> tag of your page.
