Snow For Christmas
(not supported)

This is a VERY simple addon that will give the effect of snow falling on your forums, its great for the holiday season, and makes it an easy way to give your forum that holiday feel without doing a bunch of editing or theme changes.

Step 1. Download the attached snow.zip (unpack it) and upload the snow.js to your forums root
(you can also edit the snow.js to change, speed & amount of snow that falls)

Step 2. Go to ADMIN > STYLE MANGER > your style > HEADER
In the "header" box add this code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

(this will make it snow on all areas of your forum)

If you only want the snow effect to be seen on the main page of your forum then do Step 3 instead of Step 2

Step 3. Go to your styles "FORUMHOME" and add the above code just under the "<head>"

This has only been tested on 3.6.2 using IE6

To stop this effect after the holidays, simply comment out the script code like this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

View a demo here
(this demo is using STEP 3, snow only on the FORUMHOME)

Please Click INSTALL
