Random banner in Magento 1 using static blocks

The banners are an inevitable part of any E-Commerce store. They help to increase our sales by promoting new products, special offers & discounts etc.

Today I’m going to make a simple random banner in our Magento powered online store with static blocks and template files.

Here we use a PHP function, mt_rand() to achieve our goal. The mt_rand() return a random integer value between one and N because our parameters for mt_rand() function is one & N.

We use this returned integer value as a part of our static block identifier & echo that static block on that page.

To view our random banner, flesh the Magento cache and reload the store.
