Description: Simple snippet to show some random images from a folder of your choice.

Just add the following call to your template:


This uses "media" as the base directory and shows 4 random images from that dir. (*.jpg, *.gif, *.png)

You may give a directory and a number of images to show:

random_hoverbox( '/media/folder', 5 );

To change the appearance, edit the frontend.css.

Info: The script uses the file name of the image file to create the content of the alt attribute. So just name your image files like the titles you wish to use.

Filename -> My_holidays_in_Canada.jpg
ALT -> "My holidays in Canada"
