Inspired by the contribution of breitsch here is an other general solution using the template for “image <div>” or “image special”.

It is very pretty and more flexible:

  • list of images from CP
  • width/heigth parameters from CP
  • lightbox (zoom only doesn´t run!!!).
  • alt/title from CP
  • build your own classes/IDs
  • fallback image (please insert your image into the snippet at the end)


<div class="images" id="images{ID}">
    $my_images = array();
    $my_counter = -1;
    $my_images[$my_counter][0] = '{IMAGE}';  // complete html string with image
    $my_images[$my_counter][1] = '{IMGID}';  // image-id
echo '<div class="imageEntry">'.LF;
if (!empty($my_images) ) {
    echo '<div id="img'.$my_images[$my_counter][1].'">'.LF;  // ID
//    srand(microtime()*1000000); // Only for php version < 4.2
    echo $my_images[rand(0,$my_counter)][0];  // iamge output
    echo '</div>'.LF;  // End ID
{ // ************* Please insert your fallback image *************
    echo '<img src="content/images/my_fallback_image.jpg" width="200" height="150" alt="My alt" title="My title" border="0" />';
echo '</div>'.LF;
unset ($my_images);
unset ($my_counter);

More features

If you wan´t more features, please play around with the other parameter like {THUMB_HEIGHT} or {IMAGE_HASH} and so on.

      Thumbnail image: {THUMB_NAME}
        relative:      {THUMB_REL}
        absolute:      {THUMB_ABS}
        height/width:  {THUMB_HEIGHT}px/{THUMB_WIDTH}px
        image ID:      {IMAGE_ID}
        image Hash:    {IMAGE_HASH}
      If you are not sure wrap zoomed image:
      Zoomed (big) image: {IMAGE_NAME}
        relative: {IMAGE_REL}
        absolute: {IMAGE_ABS}
        height/width: {IMAGE_HEIGHT}px/{IMAGE_WIDTH}px

Parameters hand over

from the range
$my_images[$my_counter][2] = '{THUMB_HEIGHT}'; // image-id
$my_images[$my_counter][3] = '{THUMB_WIDTH}'; // image-id
// and so on .......
into the range
echo 'Test thumb height'.$my_images[$my_counter][2].'<br />'.LF;
echo 'Test thumb width'.$my_images[$my_counter][3].'<br />'.LF;
