I see all PNG's and GIF's in there... Well, all the images are 100 x 73, right? If you set the dimensions to 100 x 73 in your profile, it won't try and find the size and it will work. Another thing you can do is put a regular image in its place (upload something to http://h1.ripway.com/LASAR/av.png), set it to your avatar, and then replace it with the real av.png folder. Then I think the system wouldn't notice the change, and it would work no matter what.

Oh, good point...

Every time I refresh, one or both images are broken.

Yeah, I'm testing them out. I'm using the cookie method and I'm fumbling with cookie domains or scope or whatever.

Edit: So I'm getting predictable results. The next second image will always be what the first current image is. Still not what I want.

What order does Firefox/whatever browser make those image requests in? If I open the two in separate tabs, refresh the avatar, and then refresh the sig, it works. Maybe Firefox sends the requests for the images in reverse order that they appear on the page.

EDIT: Eh, never mind, I flipped them around in a preview and it did the same thing... Apparently cookies don't actually update for different images until the whole page is done loading. You could try having the second image set the cookies for the next time, and then assume the current images would use the cookies that were set the last time, if that's possible.

I can try that next, but I went for the text file method. She works now.

Directory set up:

Code:
/paired/
   /av.png/
      1.png
      2.jpg
      3.gif
      4.png
   /sig.png/
      /*
      Contents with the same name as the other directory
      */
   dataDump.txt /*This file is only temporary and exists between the first script's
         execution and the second script's execution*/


Code:
<?php

$dataHold = '../pairedData.txt';
$dirHandle = opendir('./');
$dirContents = array();
while($dirItem = readdir($dirHandle)){
   if(is_file($dirItem) && $dirItem != 'index.php') $dirContents[] = $dirItem;
}

if(!file_exists($dataHold)){
   $numberOfItems = sizeof($dirContents) - 1;
   $displayImage = './' . $dirContents[rand(0, $numberOfItems)];

   $mime = getimagesize($displayImage);
   $mime = image_type_to_mime_type($mime[2]);
   
   $dataDump = array('mime' => $mime, 'display' => $displayImage);
   $fh = fopen($dataHold, 'w');
   fwrite($fh, serialize($dataDump));
   fclose($fh);
}else{
   $fh = fopen($dataHold, 'r');
   $dataDump = unserialize(fread($fh, filesize($dataHold)));
   fclose($fh);
   $mime = $dataDump['mime'];
   $displayImage = $dataDump['display'];
   unlink($dataHold);
}

header('Content-type: ' . $mime);
readfile($displayImage);

?>

I think ripway doesn't allow periods in folder names anymore. :(

I'm looking for a Municipality icon or something to use as an avator. Can anyone help?

You can just add /anything.png to the end of the index.php file instead (unless Ripway uses IIS servers or something), e.g., instead of linking to avatar.png, link to avatar.png/index.php/anything.png. Except the first folder can't be called avatar.png anymore, obviously, but whatever it's called.

Why not Freewebs? You can host a photo album there.

Okay this is what I don't understand when it comes to the signatures... I've got a picture saved on my desktop that I created because the image I wanted to use wasn't available anywhere else...

Yeah so anyway I had it hosted by imageshack.com and I'd like it to be bigger than it is but... the forum rules say max 100 pixels right? Or did I read that wrong?
At the same time, I look at other people's signatures and it seems to be much larger... I don't understand...

Anyone know what the deal is?

Oops. Nevermind. I'm dumb :)
