different picture each of the week or year.

how to display different image on each day of the week



2:12 pm on Jul 29, 2012 (gmt 0)


I need a code that works to show a different pic for each day of week or year. It will be inserted to html. I found some codes but they did not work at all. Can someone let me know how to do it?

image folder: /mooncalendar and image names will be Monday.gif, Tuesday.gif or for year 1.gif, 2.gif, 3.gif etc...

Thanks in advance for your help.

Do they have to be named anything specific? Can you name them 0.gif, 1.gif, etc up to 365.gif?

<img src="/path/to/files/<?php echo date('z'); ?>.gif">

date('z') would give you the day of the year from 0-365. Day 365 would only happen in a leap year.

date('l') would give you days of the week with the filenames being:

That's a lowercase L in the date code.
