    I want to create a site very similar to this one:
    HTML:
    hxxp://www.onlinebikinibabes.com
    How does he do it? In terms of the fetch pics from the chosen directory where thousands of pics are. This site is essentially set on auto-pilot.

    Any feedback would be great

    To get the big image to display once clicked, again I'd use a php command called GET from the url.

    So each random image would have their own link you set up in the random image script with a URL something like:

    www.Site-Name.com/index.php?pic=3434934

    Then on your index page you have an image where the source is getting the image number from the URL like this

    <img src="http://www.Site-Name.com/images/<?php echo $_GET["pic"]; ?>.jpg">

    Hey Thanks for responding to the post.

    I actually got my site up before your post. However, I need to create a method to totally automate the site. For example, I have a crap load of pics. I'd like to create some sort of system where images wll be in queqe for months sort of like an autoblog.

    I also want the site to update 6 times daily.


    What would be the easiest way to go about this? Will it require setting up a
    database?

    Ok, Thanks:baby:

    You need to first fetch the images from somewhere, like phun.org or something. Then save the images as "/almost/naked/chicks/forya/girl$number". $number for the first image fetched would be 1, 2 for the second etc.

    Then dynamically show the pics like so: echo "<img src=/almost/naked/chicks/forya/girl".mt_rand(1,$lastchicknumber);

    If you have like 10k images, and show 10 images at a time, chances for showing same image 2 times on the same page are not nonexistant.

    Unless there's pre-built software that already does that then there's no real easy way to do it.

    If I was going to do it I would dump all the photos into a directory and make a script that scans the directory, grabs the file names and adds it to the database which you can then just call out the images from there. Then for the 6 updates a day you would need to create cron jobs that automatically get that last update and scan the next six items.

    How difficult would it be to do this? Are there sites/scripts already out there (Free)?

    You could probably use a script like this one.

    Code:
