Hi All

If you have a look at:

http://www.lcchurch.co.uk/

We have 6 banner images that we would like to rotate every seconds.

Any ideas on how this can be done?

Regards

Hi There

Many thanks for that. Does it work in Joomla 1.5?

I'm not familiar with Joomla, but it should work if you can follow the instructions from that page.

Hi There

Joomla uses various files for configuration and I'm not sure which one to put this in. I'm guessing index.html but cannot be certain.

You're welcome. Glad you got it working. Joomla seems to have so many good modules. I'm gonna have to take time off and look more into using it.

Another alternative is the ad server OpenX. I've been pleased because it's very easy to configure and use.

Hi There

Yes and I have it sort of working.

The only thing is that the fading banners WILL NOT display on articles. For example on the homepage:

http://www.lcchurch.co.uk/

They display fine. But if you look here:

http://www.lcchurch....-cherished.html

They don't.

It seems as if any article not displayed on the main menu doesn't show the banner.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Regards
