Classic Style Snow Fall
by OldSchoolDSL
13 Dec 2011 06:56

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


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

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

UPDATE 12-23-2011

Not a code update, but an optimized suggestion. As I know many of you will start using this on Christmas Eve.

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).

If you're tired of vBulletin you should upgrade to Woltlab Burning Board http://woltlab.com

CPU intensive on your visitors and users though. But will use it on Christmas Day anyway, THANKS!

No more so than any other java script.

The only higher than average load I got on this was if you're using a much older browser... ie .... Internet Explorer 6 (which is discontinued by Microsoft and vBulletin is also stopping support for).

Enjoy using this on Christmas :)

On my FF 9 it increases CPU load quite a bit, and a couple of my staff coders noticed it too. It appears to be worse on IE9 though then it does on safari or FF.

I personally don't know of any humans still using IE6 Hahaha!

But like I said, it's not a permanent thing. Just a Christmas Day surprise and I appreciate it.

I'm afraid all the ones I've installed have increased CPU usage, I don't think I'll be using this one either, thanks for the share at least!

Set the snow foll down to 20 and it loads fine on even an iPod ;)

Excellent. Just tested it and will be putting it into use on Christmas Eve.

Just installed this on our4.1.9 site and is working a treat, not noticed any major resource difference either

All of my mobile users have a dedicated style they're automatically assigned to... They don't get to see the mean ol' snowflakes!

vBulletin 3 Patch Level 3 was seemingly the last version of vBulletin 3.

This work on it and all modern web browsers including Internet Explorer 10

If you have a lot of mobile web users, see notes added from last year above :)

OldSchoolDSL 10 Oct 2013 05:36

Confirmed still working :)

Yes, even on modern browsers
