Displaying a random image/banner on your umbraco site

First some info on the setup:

After installing runway to get a basic site up and running I created a folder in the media section and added several images


On my homepage document type I added a ‘media picker’ property called ‘Pictures’. There I’ll select the media picture folder.


All that’s left now is to write some xslt that will select a random image from the media folder.

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>


This snippet will output the relative url of a random picture from inside the selected media folder ( like /media/44/dsc00033.jpg ).
