I'm sure you have already considered this... but just in case.

Using a simple javascript snippet you can have the Front Page photo "randomly" change between many different choices.

Here are a couple of links to example scripts:

http://www.javascriptcity.com/scripts/img/simage3.htm
http://www.draac.com/random-image.html

I love the front page photo's and I think it would be neat to see a random photo everytime I visit!

P.S. The script samples I provided make you "hardcode" which photo's you want to randomly change right in the script. I'm sure there's probably one out there that would let you specify a directory to pull the photo's from as well.

Thanks. I have considered a javascript and a script to combined link to the albums and the home page. My goal is to show new photos and a description frequently on the home page. As people post their rigs, I like to show different brands and new and interesting places that inspire us to get out and go camping.

So its not just about have a few photos. Does that make sense?

Mike, Remind folks that if they visit our Albums, there is a random photo (thumbnail) posted in the Gallery. It is kinda fun to see those... they conjure up "aha-I remember that!" moments!!

Makes perfect sense Mike, thanks.

Thanks you also Mary, I wasn't even aware that there was an Albums section.... I'm relatively new to the site.
