Hey guys, been a while since I've been in the Asylum but I have a doozy of a project that I have to develop.

1) I have to create a system that will have a different banner for a site based on the day of the month, not week. For example, 24hourfitness.com has a banner that changes daily with a special. I need to create somehow a way to replicate that without having to manualy change it.

I thought of using php and using the date feature somehow to pull an image based on the day #, (ie. May 1 would be image(1) link(1), May 2 image(2), link(2), etc. Anything better of something feasable already out there?

2) I have to create a main banner that will have about 5 events going on through the month and it changes each week. I'd like to create some sort of flash file that would pull image1.jpg then when clicked on it goes to page1, then when it changes to image2.jpg, the link changes. The tought part is that I'd like to make it dynamic so I just change a few lines in a txt file for a specific event and it changes it. Confusing? yeah i know....

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

first one is trivial... have a folder with images image1.jpg through image31.jpg

code:
<img src="folder/image<?=date('j')?>.jpg' ...>

can you elaborate a little more on when the banner's are changing automatically, and what you need to configure, in part 2?

Well for the site I designed for my church I want to have some sort of banner that will a few bits of information.

1) Where service will be located. This can be simple text over a bg image.
2) Any special events that are upcoming such as a conference.
3) More of number 2.

But I'd like a way to just change 1 or 2 files so that it changes easier and from week to week.
I hope I explained that simple enough...

In my opinion, your demands are difficult to realize.
It sounds quite complicated to have the banner automatically change with the time.
