Projects / mod_random


Mod Random provides three services. The first service is redirection: you feed it URLs and it will redirect to random URLs that you have loaded. The second is providing environment variables that can be used for implementing ad banner systems. The third is displaying entire pages of random HTML, using its own custom handlers in combination with with random ads and quotes that you feed into the system. It can also supply text via an environment variable called RANDOM_QUOTE, RANDOM_AD, or by environment variables that you specify. This can be used to implement fortune cookies, message of the day, entire random pages, or banner ads.
