Random Growth Mindset Cats

Each time the page reloads, a new random cat! There is a 400-pixel-wide version (what you see below) and in a 200-pixel-wide version (what you see in the sidebar). Here is a link to the javascripts.




You can make your own javascripts with Randy Hoyt's wonderful script-builder at RotateContent.com. Just put your content into an HTML table and the tool creates the script for you.

May 28 2016 update: I've added more images to the script, so there are now over 150 cats, plus I moved all the files into a secure web space (https). That means you can now use the script in an LMS like D2L or Canvas.

Scripts for the Random Cats

I made these widgets with Randy Hoyt's wonderful RotateContent.com.

Here is the 200-pixel-wide version (good for blog sidebars):


And here is the 400-pixel-wide version:


There is also an iframe version that you can use in Canvas or similar environment that does not allow direct use of javascripts; you can adjust the height variable as needed; I have only created an iframe version of the 400-pixel-wide widget:




If you are using an old http version of the script:

In order to make the scripts run in an https environment (complying with new mixed content rules), as of May 28 2016 I am hosting the javascript in an https space and I am also hosting all the images in an https space. You will just need to change

to:

The old version will continue to run, but you will see that it displays an alert about needing to switch to https, and I won't be updating it with new pictures. I will only be updating the https version from now on.
