Random content script

A simple script for random html publishing.


This is a "plug-in" / "add-on" for a web site. It is an easy way to make something happen on some page that would otherwise remain static.

What it does

This software publishes content selected from a list onto a single page. It can show anything from small quotes to full html pages.

Let's say it publishes "messages": The software may show just one particular message. Or, say, a random rotation of messages 2, 8, and 87 out of 100 available messages. Or, all of them. Or, a default page.

Technical requirements

For a web site visitor, the only requirement is a browser that can render html. Any browser, that is.
