Let It Snow.
So, you want Javascript snow on your web site, eh?


What It does
Snowstorm is a Javascript-driven snow effect that can be easily added to web pages. It is free for use, and easy to set up. A single Javascript file provides the functionality required. No images are used for the snow effect.


Demo
My Blog: http://www.namaless.com
vBulletin Forum: http://www.techno-house-electro.de/forum/


Installation
  1. Download this Product
  2. Unzip this Product
  3. Upload the content from directory UPLOAD in your vBulletin Root Directory
  4. Import this product product-namaless_snowstorm.xml
  5. Go to vBulletin Options -> Snow Storm Settings setup this product.

    • Fixed "Script Locations" from this post.
    • Moved "Toggle Snow On/Off" link from header userinfo before notifications with jQuery (not found template hook for insert link here).

I just modified min version lol.

Do you think you could make one compatible for 3.8.6? I can let you use my board as a test if you don't have 3.8.6.

Here's the error:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Any tips to make it work? Thanks
Min version is 4.0, with 3.8 need some modification to template system.

(vBulletin 4.0.8 Patch Level 2)

I haven't tested to see if each setting works or not on my board, but it seems to be ok with just the plug and play so far.

This mod really needs the ability to be disabled in threadview altogether. The snow effect is very annoying when attempting to read a thread. I will disable the mod from my board for now in hopes of turning it off in threadview will be available in an upcoming version. By the way, disabling it from threadview should be added in the admincp settings.

Other then that small issue,.....great mod!

Just a though but,....You may also consider setting this mod up to change the snow to other images that could be used throughout the year. Example, for valentines day there could be small floating hearts instead of snow. Or small green clovers on st. patricks day. Or pumpkins at halloween. I personally would not have a problem paying for such a mod.

First of all thank you for the various suggestions that you have provided me. Part of what you request is possible, ie, in the settings you can insert a character and it will be turned into snow, so you must enter the HTML code of the image you want to see, for example:

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

Then you have to increase the size of the "bow"as it is written in the description of the field of default are 8px you set the size of the image and this appears as snow (I just tried it and I saw many small houses).
As for your request to disable the mod in the view of the discussion I can enter without problems. Add a setting where the MOD is show if you are on that page (via the constant THIS_SCRIPT of vBulletin).
I do not require money for the development of this MOD, if you want I can create custom MOD fee but this is not the place to discuss it. However, as all developers want to give me something if you can make donations from the form that each developer has. Do you find the right information in the development of MOD.

Great add-on! Congratulations to the designer!

Any idea how to change the shape of the snow to more traditional one?

When I say traditional shape I mean this one



because I see the snow falling as cycles.
