Join Jen Kramer for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution: Create a random-image module, part of Joomla! 3.3 Essentials: Modules, Components, Extensions, and Templates.
- So, how did you do with that challenge?…Did you manage to figure out the random image module?…Well, I'll go ahead and show you my solution now.…So, if you start by going into the back end here…of Joomla, the first thing that you should do…is go ahead and upload those images to the Media Manager.…So I'm gonna go to "Content."…"Media Manager."…And as I said, put them all in one folder.…And so the way to do that is click on the…"Create New Folder" button.…And we'll give this a name like "random".…
So we have our folder here.…Then I'll click on the folder.…And into this folder I want to upload my images.…So to do that, I'm gonna click on the green "Upload" button.…And I'll choose my files, which…are in the folder number seven here.…And I'll go ahead and select all four of these images.…We'll go ahead and say "Open".…And we'll upload them.…Now what you should not about the random image module…and the way it works, these images need…to all be the same file type.…
So in other words, they either need to be all jpg…or all png or all gif.…
