UPDATED:

Ok i have changed the code a little bit and added some images to the zip folder at current i havent added a menu in admin CP to globally turn this off
when i manage to figure out the new hooks system ill have a bash at doing it for you .

You can easily add your own images just upload your image to the effects folder which should be located
in your forums image folder for example /forum/images/misc/effects/
Then change the code to point to the new image name.

The images will only work with the Forum Effects code


ok lets get started .

first goto admincp > styles & templates > edit templates and locate header and edit
at the very very top before anything else. Add one of the following codes,



For small snowflakes add this code


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

find and edit this line

src="/forum/images/misc/effects/snow.js

point it to your forum image path

****************************************************************************

For big snowflakes and other effects add this code


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

find and edit this line

var snowsrc="/forum/images/misc/effects/effect(*).gif"

point it to your forum image path and delete the (*) and put a number from 1-18 (make sure there is no space for example effect1) to use the pre-added images.

****************************************************************************

now download forum_effects.zip and upload the effects folder to your forum image path for example /forum/images/misc/


****************************************************************************

Few addons for this modification.

****************************************************************************

Make modification optional per usergroup. - Thanks to SHANE-D-PAIN

Where 1,2,3,4 & 5 are the ids of the Usergroups that this is to be displayed to.

For Example:

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

****************************************************************************

To Save on the heavy CPU usage that this mod uses follow the instructions below - Thanks to Solitary Seraph

Please Note, This is for the small snowflakes and not the big ones.

Edit the snow.js with any type of editor (ie. notepad).



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

The first two will let you change it, Solitary Seraph changed it to 20/75, and it dropped to about 50% cpu usage for his/her members with bad computers.
Keep tweaking with it and eventually it should work nicely for everyone, or you can turn it off with the last bit, for the mozilla users.

****************************************************************************

I would also like to thank the following ppl

Smiry Kin's - for the nicer snow image.

****************************************************************************

PLEASE NOTE: Big snowflakes and other effects may slow down your board and may not be viewable via firefox browsers. The small flakes should be ok and can be viewed by firefox.

hope u enjoy!

Wow this is an old thread...lol I think its the right ocassion to revisit though; at least the right time of year


I'd like to add some snow to my site for the holiday season, but I am a total and I mean total NEWBIE to mods/hacks. I have a decent site started so far www.americaoutloud.org.

I just wanted to know if someone could walk me through the process on IM one evening.

ALSO:

1. Has anyone been able to have this mod only work on the "homepage"?

2. Can it be controlled through the admin function

Please shoot me an email if you can help out!
juan.barnett at gmail.com

Thanks!

You can add gif files in the "effects" folder and use the "big snowflakes" javascript to point to any picture you want.

in addition, after further investigation:
when the page loads that has this effect added to it's template
in IE7
there's a notice at the bottom in bar that it is 'Done' but with errors on page
details of error:
Line 356
Char 5
Error Object required
Code 0
then when looking at page source via code editor :
lines 355-358:

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

line 356 being the doc_width code

I don't know the exact php code, but it would look something like:

That way you could actually put all of the stuff in before the holidays rolled around (in separate <if> blocks), and it would be the code that would handle turning it on and off, rather than you having to manually do it.

This also allows for users to turn off these extra goodies if they want, so that they can 'opt out' for slower computers (or if they just find it annoying).
how do i put the date in? 25/12/2008 or some other format need your help.
