Making a randomized loading page


CherryTree

Question

Site URL: http://www.cherrytreeinteriordesign.com

Hi! I'm trying to make loading pages that will load a random image each time. The code I have so far is code I pulled from elsewhere (here) and tweaked - see below:

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<div class="logoload"></div>
<style>
.logoload {
  /* SET BACKGROUND COLOR */
  background-color: #E6E4E8;
  /* SET BACKGROUND SIZE */
  background-size: 500px;
  position: fixed;
  left: 0px;
  top: 0px;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  z-index: 9999;
  background-position: center;
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
  background-image: url("https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5eebcfe57f948c024906fe27/t/60ebd829c22c005c9356a5d4/1626069033592/home-page-loading-screen.jpg/");
}
</style>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(window).load(function() {
    $(".logoload").delay(500).fadeOut("slow");
})
</script>

That code does work for a single image, but I don't know how to modify it to do what I want. I'd like the background image to randomize to be one of several images I have. Any ideas how I do this? Please be gentle - I am below newbie status when it comes to coding, so explain like I don't know anything (because I don't).

Thanks in advance!

Okay, so after searching for the 50th time, I somehow stumbled across this Q&A that I hadn't seen before. So tweaking that, I got:

Header:

<div class="logoload"></div>
<style>
.logoload {
  /* SET BACKGROUND COLOR */
  background-color: #E6E4E8;
  /* SET BACKGROUND SIZE */
  background-size: 1000px;
  position: fixed;
  left: 0px;
  top: 0px;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  z-index: 9999;
  background-position: center;
  background-repeat: no-repeat;
}
</style>
<span id="top"></span>

Footer:

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
  
 $(document).ready(function() {
     var arr = ["https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5eebcfe57f948c024906fe27/t/60ebe7c90a287971afb84858/1626073033610/LP+quote+1.png",

    ]; 

    document.querySelector(".logoload").style.backgroundImage = "url('"+arr[Math.floor(Math.random() * arr.length)]+"')";
});
  
$(window).load(function() {
    $(".logoload").delay(500).fadeOut("slow");
})
</script>

It works! Except, it doesn't look right on mobile, and I want to disable it for mobile. That brings me to the question I asked here: is there a way to disable that javascript code for mobile devices?
