[resolved] Random Redirect from Array - How?

Recommended Posts

I'm in need of a php script to redirect from an array of URL's....

For example when index.php is hit, it will redirect to a random url from the array....

<?php
$url = array(
"1" => "http://www.google.com",
"2" => "http://www.yahoo.com",
"3" => "http://www.snap.com",
"4" => "http://www.altavista.com",
);
?>

<HTML><HEAD>
<META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT="0; URL=<? echo("$newurl"); ?>">
</HTML>



That's as far as I can go, I don't know how to tell it to pick randomly....:-(

Sorry, I'm learning.......

[code]<?php
$urlIdx = rand(0,count($url)-1);
?>

<META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT="0; URL=<? echo("$url[$urlIdx]"); ?>">
[/code]

Or, you just do something like this:
[code]<?php

$url = array(
"http://www.google.com",
"http://www.yahoo.com",
"http://www.snap.com",
"http://www.altavista.com"
);

shuffle($url);
header("Location: $url[0]"); // Redirect user...

?>[/code]
