Release: Fade In/Out hyperlinks

Author: Anarchos

Description: Fading script fades a link from one color to another when the mouse goes over it, and then back when the mouse goes off

Screenshot: not provided. The author's website is down and my test board went bezerk on me. If possible, can somebody else who implemented this hack provide a demo link?

Download: see attached file (unzip and open the fade.js file in your favorite editor)

This is a very very nice Javascript fader I stumbled into. It fades in all hyperlinks as you hover over them and fades out when you mouse out of the link. Delay of fading and color are all customizable and even Mac-browser support is provided (though tricky).

Installation and configuration is pretty straightforward and all done in the provided .js file. Just edit it with an editor of your choice and put the modified fade.js file in your root forums directory.
Tip: set autofade=True in the .js config section!

Install instructions for your vB board:
  • Upload the modified .js file to your forums/ directory
  • Log in to your AdminCP
  • Navigate to Templates > Modify > Headinclude template
  • Insert the following code just after </style>

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

As this script is not mine, I will not be able to provide support. Just wanted to submit a cool script to the community :-)

Warning: the fade effect won't work on links between <b></b>,<i></i>,<font> and some other tags as stated in the .js file.

it's in the .js file:
fadeColor = "#FF9900"; // color to fade to

or do you mean the original link color? That's in your .style file
(Admin CP > Styles > Modify > Fonts/Colors/Etc)

Also, for all other users. As I'm not the original author if this javascript, I'm not able to support it. It's current state will NOT support fading in <b></b>, <i></i> and other tags. I'm sorry If you want to play around with the .js and get that feature working, please let us know in this thread!

Nice addiditon, the fade.js on my old phpBB2 board.

Now it would be cool if the fades could also be applied to the forum names & categories.

Anyone figured this one out already?
