This will give your site a classic holiday snow fall without any images, uploading any files, or adding any server load to your site.

It is also customize-able to fit your needs. :)


Classic Snow Fall

In your footer at the very end and below any other scripts you may already have there.

Add the following


<SCRIPT type="text/javascript">
/*
Classic Snow Fall - Java Script
*/

// Set the number of snowflakes (more than 30 - 40 not recommended)
var snowmax=35

// Set the colors for the snow. Add as many colors as you like
var snowcolor=new Array("#aaaacc","#ddddff","#ccccdd","#f3f3f3","#f0ffff")

// Set the fonts, that create the snowflakes. Add as many fonts as you like
var snowtype=new Array("Times","Arial","Times","Verdana")

// Set the letter that creates your snowflake (recommended: * )
var snowletter="*"

// Set the speed of sinking (recommended values range from 0.3 to 2)
var sinkspeed=0.6

// Set the maximum-size of your snowflakes
var snowmaxsize=30

// Set the minimal-size of your snowflakes
var snowminsize=8

// Set the snowing-zone
// Set 1 for all-over-snowing, set 2 for left-side-snowing
// Set 3 for center-snowing, set 4 for right-side-snowing
var snowingzone=1

</SCRIPT>
Save and reload
In another browser tab or windows, review the results.
If all is well as it should be, you're done.

Please mark as installed :o


Suggestion:

If you know your community has a lot of mobile web users, such as Apple iPod, setting the snow fall value count to 20 works best. (original value is 35).


// Set the number of snowflakes (more than 30 - 40 not recommended)
var snowmax=20
