ad,
tu dois ouvrir ton index.php avec un vrai editeur de code (j'utilise smultron, gratuit sur mac).
en utilisant text edit ou un truc comme ça, tu ne verra que ton "• Built with Indexhibit"

It's hidden (with the .)...so, show invisible files with your ftp and then delete it out of there...and/or...

One of your images is named very strange...check out the names. No spaces...no weird characters...

Vaska,

Love this plugin. My site is http://dereklove.com

My question: is there a way to hyperlink the images so that when people click on them, the page reloads and a new one comes up?

Thanks in advance!

Still Problems with tilling Backgrounds?
This is working for me:
in  plugin.ndxz_rand_bg.php:
Edit Line 17 from:

  1. function ndxz_rand_bg($folder='', $tile=true)

to:

  1. function ndxz_rand_bg($folder='', $tile)

And in Line 46 from:

  1. $tile = ($tile == true) ? 'repeat' : 'no-repeat';

to:

  1. $tile = ($tile == "true") ? 'repeat' : 'no-repeat';

Good Luck!

Hi,

I'm trying to use the random background plugin on our website, but i can't seem to turn off the tiling?? I've tried all variations, but still no luck.

Thanks.

ahhh....

Just tried adding the 'no-repeat' to the dynamic CSS generated by the plugin instead and that seems to have done the trick. Seems like it no longer needs the 'true'/'false' in the index file.

I have tried every posible variation of the plugin code for this plugin and to no avail. My main page continuously shows a blank page where the images should go.

http://www.bohemianrabbit.org

I installed the plugin in the ndxz-studio/site/plugin folder
created a new folder titled "rnd-images" in the root folder of my site
placed every variation of in the index.php file in the sample folder and absolutely no luck.

I've done this before and never had a problem... not sure what the issue is. Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

Hi, I'm trying to combine the random background generator with the full background plugin. How should I do this? - because the

part that I plug in replaces

Which is referencing the full_background plugin. I think they are going to have to work together, but I don't know exactly how- any suggestions?

oops html, what i meant to say was that

plug:ndxz_rand_bg 'files/rndm_imgs','true'

replaces

plug:full_background /

which I think nullifies the full background plugin...does anybody know how these two can be combined?

Hi Vaska,

I have followed your instructions very carefully with no luck. I have read through the entire forum for help with no luck either.

this is my site: mysite

I altered the "index.php" (ndxz-studio/site/sample) code to read:

"plug:ndxz_rand_bg 'rnd_images',false /"

The "plugin.ndxz_rand_bg.php" (ndxz-studio/site/plugin) is in the correct place.

My random images folder ("rnd_images") is located on the same level where my "ndxz-studio"and "files" folder are.

You mention that the server might be having difficulty locating my images folder so I also tried what I believe to be the hard-coded path:

"plug:ndxz_rand_bg 'home/admin2510/mainwebsite_html/rnd_images',false /"

I am having trouble making sense of this. Thanks for your time.

Vaska,

I installed the rand_bg plugin and everything works like a dream. I do have a problem with the background color though... -it's set to white when displaying pictures in the content area. how do I change it??? the plug in seems to 'overwrite' changes I make with the 'color selector' when editing the 'main' page.

I've read all posts of the this forum over and over but can't find the solution. sorry.
would really appreciate your help. would love to show you the site but as of now I'm still testing it locally.
Thanks!

Hi everyone,
i've been following all the instructions for correctly setting up the random background, dragging the plugin to the right folder and replacing the 'backgrounder' line in the index.php file with the correct line.

somehow it's still not working and i wonder if anyone could have a quick look to see if i've missed something.

im a total beginner when it comes to code, and i've been learning loads in this forum! just can't get over this hurdle.
any help would be much appreciated!

Hi,
I follow the instructions to install the Plugin for the Random Background main page.
Everything worked fine except for the tiling which I do not want.
I added the code as mention (false) but the tilling is still there, then I edit the plugin as I read on this thread, put everything false... now I don't get the tiling but I get the white space of a suppose tiling.
I am confuse now with all I have read... how can I fix this?
I need a little help!
Thanks for the great support oh the Indexhibit community.

Thank for your quick respond arsondpi.
If you open more your browser to a higher resolution you will see that the background color is white and should be grey (#f2f2f5)like the rest of the pages on the website, the tiling is still there.

Hi everyone,
After I got rid of the tiling the color of the background has gone?
The color was grey (#f2f2f5) now is white... I don't, understand?
To see that white color press "Ctrl-" to zoom out from the browser in case your resolution on your screen is low.
Is this a white tiling... where is my background color?

I added the code as mention (false) but the tilling was still there, then I edit the plugin as I read on this thread, put everything false... now I don't get the tiling, but I get the white space of a suppose tiling or who knows what.

Thanks for all the help.

tiling is when the background image gets repeated. And you don't have any tiling. You're asking about adding a background colour...

right before the actual plugin (<plug:ndxz_rand_bg folder_name,tiling />) in your index.php insert this:

  1. <plug:backgrounder color='<%color%>' />

luisa: so you have "backgrounded" selected as r plugin for yr main page?

xmar: i figured out the color issue finally. open up yr plugin.ndxz_rand_bg.php with a text editor and paste the following in the $style sections nect to the other background properties:

  1. background-color: #000000;

Is there any way to use this plugin to create a random, non-tiled, small image (around 600 px) on my main page? Right now I just have regular image out front but it would be great if I could get it to rotate. Thanks!

Here's what it looks like now, just imagine a diff image each time. dannyghitis.com

Hi, I have the plugin working (loving it) and I noticed in the code that it's possible to only have the random image display on the home page but I can't get it to work. As instructed in the code I have changed the following sections - Line 29 & 30

  1. if ($rs['url'] == 'http://www.pygment.com/indexhibit/')

and the instruction in the code also says

  1. // !!! See line 19: Don't forget to un-comment this following bit, (74-76) if you want the randomness only on the main page!!!

Line 74-76 isn't the close bracket for the if statement and when I un-comment the close section I think it should be (lines 80-82) the code breaks. I have tried different combinations but it keeps breaking.
