So, you're almost there.

simply create an array to hold your five variables..

Code: Select all

// grab your pictures from yahoo here..


$need = 5; // change it on the fly if you want..  
while (count($array) <= $need) { // since the count of array is less than or equal to the need..
  $random = rand(0,($items_length - 1)); // pick the random number between 0 and max items - 1
  if (!in_array($random,$array)) {  // if our random number isn't in our storage array.. 
    $array[]=$random; // stuff it! Now it is! (count goes up on next cycle.. when it reaches $need, it quits.

//wrap your div's around this..
foreach($array as $key => $value) { //cycle through the array to create your 5 links, dynamically. 
   echo '<img src="'.$items[$value]['media:thumbnail']['0']['url'].'" border="0">';
//close your divs around this..
