If you've ever seen these, these are sigs like mine for when you click the refresh button it changes to another random sig that you have hosted somewhere. These are simple to do and don't require any knowledge on your behalf of how any scripting or programming works.<br>
First of all, make sure you have at least 2 sigs or having a rotating script is kind of pointless. You can have as many as you'd like, but I limited myself to 9. Have all your sigs hosted somewhere, like the org or any other place you currently have your sigs at.
After you have the names of the directories to where your pictures are at (example: http://www.j-body.org/members/soldjha/sig1.jpg, http://www.j-body.org/members/soldjha/sig2.jpg, etc.), write them all down and go to <a href="http://www.hostedscripts.com/randomimage.html">this website</a>. This is Hosted Scripts, a website that lets you remotely use certain scripts, one of them being a rotating .php script. You will have to sign up to be a member, which takes no time at all and is of course free. After you have signed up, click on the link on the left which says Random Image, or simply click back on the link above.
Once you are signed in and have clicked on the Random Image link, you should be at a page that at the top says Home and Change the Random URL's. Below this should be a description of what the script does, and a white box contatining the link for your script. Do not type in this box, this is for your link, not what you are linking to.
Click on Change the Random URL's. You will have a box where you type in each URL for your signatures. For instance, I would first type in the box http://www.j-body.org/members/soldjha/sig1.jpg. You are not required to put any quotation marks or brackets around your URL, just type it in and press the Enter button to move to the next line and type a new URL. Do not type more than one URL per line, because the script recognizes a new entry when you press the Enter key. Also, you can have different URL's, it's not a problem. You can have some from J-Body and some from Imageshack, or they could all be different, it doesn't matter.
Once you are done typing in the URL's for all of your images, click Update URL's. This will take you back to the previous screen. In the white box at the bottom will be the link for your Random Image script. It should read something along the lines of http://members.hostedscripts.com etc. Copy this link and paste it to where you would usually put your sig at. Test it out, make sure you typed in your URL's for your sigs right, and you should be good to go.
