The Rotating Content Tool is a free online tool that provides a simple way to add dynamic
content to your web pages. You organize your content in advance and the content will then
automatically rotate based on your criteria, either by specified dates or randomly.
What is “Rotating Content”?
By “rotating content” we mean content that changes whenever someone
visits a web page. This tool allows you to add two different types of rotating content to
your web pages:
- Calendar Content: With calendar content, the displayed
content is chosen based on the date. When the page loads, the script
will check the date and find the most recent content to display for
that date. Calendar content could include a “Proverb of the Week”,
“Class Assignments Calendar ”, or a year-to-date progress
- Random Content: With random content, the displayed content is chosen
randomly. Every time a web page is loaded or refreshed, the script will randomly select a
piece of content to display.
The possibilities for different kinds of Rotating Content are endless. You may want to check

Syndication and Sharing Content
One of the most important things about Rotating Content Tool scripts
is that they can be easily shared. In the same way that you can add Rotating
Content to your own web pages with these scripts, you can also choose
to share these scripts so that others can also make use of
the content that you have created. Likewise, you might find some scripts
with content that you would like to use. Please visit the Shared
Content Library to see what content is already available for you
to use - and we hope that after you create some Rotating Content of
your own, you will choose to include it in the Library for others to
