Classic ASP Sequential Image Rotator with 8 seconds time delay

Hi all,

I need a classic ASP (not ASP.net) Image rotator that rotates sequentially not randomly(it's actually a .jpg banner rotator). Also, it needs to change every 8 seconds, not on the refresh of the page. Please, use the code below and modify it since this is the code my friend already has. One last thing, please no Javascript.

Thanks very much in advance,
Guzz

Asp code is running on the server. From the server you can't control the client (page in browser) as the client is the one that it initiates requests and the server is just responding.
You need to refresh page/picture on the client at every 8 seconds, you can't so this from asp as this code is on the server, you need to run some code on the client to do this.
And for running code on the client you have a different language called javascript.

So using javascript is the only possible solution, here are some straightforward links: Link1, Link2

If you really can't use Javascript because of technical restrictions you must add a meta tag to automatically refresh the page at 8 seconds and to handle this in asp. Also if you don't want to reload the whole page you'll have to use a frame or a iframe for the pictures section and to add some parameters to keep track of the pictures. Anyway this is a very complicated solution and I do not recommend it.

No javascript? You could use an iframe with a refresh metatag.
