According to me, this is very helpful and important update for your blog. Now I am going to show you the procedure how you will be able to add this lovely Random Banner Rotator Script in your Blogger blog.
Step 1: First of all you have to create your banners. You must create at least two different banners for rotating. You can choose images with any dimension because you can change your banners height and width in the source code.
I will show it later. If you have done selecting your banner images, now it is time to host them on the web to get banner image source URL. I use PICASA WEB ALBUM for hosting my images. I will recommend this for you too.
After hosting images, collect the image source URLs. In my case, I have hosted my banner images in PICASA. I have collected the image source URLs like this:
Step 2: Now login to your blogger account and go to the Blogger “Dashboard”. From the left side, Click on “Layout” section.
From the above code, replace all the "Yellow" highlighted parts with your own. You can set your banner's height and width by replacing the "Red" highlighted values. I have given here three banners. If you need to increase the number of banners, you can do it easily by adding more "quotes[number]" inside into the script like this:
quotes='<a href="#"><img alt="Alter Text" height="auto" width="100%" src="Banner Image Source"/></a>' quotes='<a href="#"><img alt="Alter Text" height="auto" width="100%" src="Banner Image Source"/></a>'
This script supports unlimited rotating banner so you can add as much as banner you want. Also, you can adjust height and width of your banners from the script. This is a beautiful and simple script for adding rotating banner in your blogger blog. Hope you have already added the script to your blog, and it is working fine. If not, then please let me know through the comment. I will get back to you very soon.
