Does anyone use entropy banner or some other banner rotator script? I am trying to use entropy banner, but since my pages are not shtm or shtml, it doesn't seem to want to work. I am using php, and as you may know, it doesn't like " in your coding.

Does anyone know of some other script I can use?

I appreciate any help with this!

OK...I am not very good at creating graphics. I wanted a banner that is easy to load, yet attractive. I created one, and would like your opinions. (covers face with eyes peeking through fingers, waiting for constructive criticsm) :P

The banners look great. The text "Tiffany Style Chandeliers, Table and Floor Lamps" and "with a focus on customer satisfaction!" are a little hard to read. Maybe outlining them in black might help.

I have not used the entropy banner script but you could try using frames and calling the .shtm file in the frame.

Also in php try using PHP's built-in include() function http://www.php.net/include

or use
<--#include virtual="yourbannerfile.shtml" -->

Thanks psunite, I appreciate the help and comments! I have 2 php/mysql books here, but they are very dry reading :|

Have a great day!

I find that programing books are dry reading also. I never like them and I prefer the web. If you find a good example in a book you can't cut and past it you have to type it all out :(

Here are two sites that are usefull.
http://www.w3schools.com/
http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/programming/

Thanks for the links! I used webmonkey to learn html a few years back :)

I will definitely look into both sites!

Thanks again,
