You may want to refer to this thread: http://forums.phpfre...opic.php?t=1946

Here\'s a solution you can use for this situation:

Make an array of possible pages and randomly select a key.

[php:1:9dc168d5bd]$arr = Array(\\\"pg1.php\\\",\\\"pg2.php\\\",\\\"pg3.php\\\",\\\"pg4.php\\\",\\\"pg5.php\\\");
srand((double)microtime()*1000000);
$rand = rand(0,(sizeOf($arr)-1));
$file = $arr[$rand];

include($file);[/php:1:9dc168d5bd]


Hope that helps.
