I have a question. Can someone help me get this to work as an image

http://nhjm.net/~vordok/random_sig_pics.php

I set up a php script so it will randomly pic an image thats in a certain folder. But i cant use it as a image itself on the boards.

I can on other forums but not this one. Can anyone help me get it to atleast work. Or will i never have a random pic in my sig... ever?

there...


*edit*
what I did was took the link on it (http://nhjm.net/~vordok/rdmsigpcs/dot%20hack%20sig1.jpg) and then put it in IMG tags.

Maybe make a script that will overwrite an image with a common name with different images?

I can do it... But... they won't cache, as is the nature of such scripts. It would be hell on 56Ks.

dang. I thought i had a way of fixing this.

gah... why wont it work... hrmmm

I try

[img]http://nhjm.net/~vordok/random_sig_pics.php?.jpg[/img]

but nothing. I read somewhere that question marks in images dont work here.... WHY?

edit: i decided to use one of my random pics, but if someone can help me get this working please do so. Its dirving me crazy.

I don't think the image will work because you have two tags, JPG and PHP. Try making a GIF file, I think thats all the board will allow in that category.

I figure it would look something like this (though better quality).
