Hi,
 I would like to know how to make an ad rotator whereby the ad keeps rotating every couple of seconds.i tried the ad rotator component but what is happening is that the ad rotates whenever you visit the page the next time.It does not happen automatically as it does on some websites that i have visited.Can someone tell me how i can achieve this.
Thanks

You will need to use Javascript to achieve this

Use the setTimeout to change an image at a predetermined time period

Here is enough code to get you started, you will just need to add code to decide how you want the image source to be changed.

You will also need to change the link as well.

The question here is  will this cause the whole page to flicker whenever it refreshes?
