New BBCode - random image

Postby Unspecified on Tue Sep 21, 2010 7:11 pm

Displaying one random image from a selection of URLs

To save you having to go into the forum options every day to keep your lolcat signature looking fresh and funny, you can now make use of the following new BBcode. It allows you to specify a list of comma seperated image URLs and a random one of these will be displayed each time the page is refreshed.

You can use all the usual image formats, including gifs. Whilst this is great for the indecisive signature pickers out there, this can also be used inside a normal post like any other BBcode.

The new BBcodes is randomimage. All you need to do is supply a comma separated list of image URLs, and ensure it is inside the relevant tag:

Code:
Code: Select all
[randomimage]image1, image2, image3[/randomimage]


Example code and embed:
Example code:
Code: Select all
[randomimage]http://images.ukcs.net/15358/pyro1.jpg, http://images.ukcs.net/15358/pyro2.jpg, http://images.ukcs.net/15358/pyro3.jpg[/randomimage]


Preview: (refresh this page to see the effect here)


You can also see our new model, Kan, showing off this exciting little number in her his signature here.

Please note that the usual forum rules relating to image content/suitability and signature sizes do still apply to ALL images you include in this BBcode and any abusers of it may find their ability to have a custom signature has been removed.

If you need any assistance then please PM any of the moderators.

Unfortunately not, FD- this can only be used in signatures currently.

Nice work you guys :D

Is there a limit to the amount of sigs we are allowed to used (I don't mean with the code, But I mean like with UKCS, like sigs can't be bigger then 500x200 or something)?
Edit:- Meh, I'm just going to say probably there is, but I'm going to risk it and have 5 :D

viewtopic.php?f=62&t=42408#2

Signatures and avatars must be kept clean. Pornographic,gore or racist sigs are not acceptable. Please try to keep your signatures 500 pixels (wide) x 200 pixels (tall) in dimensions. The maximum file sizes are 300kb (kilobytes) for still signatures and 1.5Mb (Megabytes) for animated signatures. If your signature does not adhere to these rules we will request that you alter it or remove it for you. This also applies to multiple images in signatures; they must all (when added together in dimension) keep to this rule.

Huge thanks to Xerxes for the sig :)

Doesn't really answer my question. How many signatures are we allowed to use is what I'm trying to get at, I'm going to assume atm, as many as we want as long as it stays under 700kb. *strokes chin*

There's no limit to how many you can use (apart from the number you can put into the box for signatures) as only one will ever be displayed at a time when using this BBCode. Obviously the more you have, the "more random" it will appear to be. The usual rules (as linked by kan) apply to all the images you use in your signature- physical size, dimensions and suitability apply still! :)
