Snow on Forum Index 1.0.0 [Mod]

Postby LDM » Mon Nov 17, 2008 4:03 pm

A simple little trick to get some snow on your Forum Home page this Christmas/Winter but thought I'd package it up as a mod for ease. Credit for source code goes to Dynamic Drive. I just edited it for phpBB3 use.

I was originally going to use this on our phpBB3 Christmas style but decided not to and to release as an optional add-on.

It's not a bad little add-on. It's actually been downloaded quite a lot from the link on phpbb.com, so guessing some will use it over the festive period.

I installed it on my board last night, but i installed it in the overall_header.html of my style so it can show on the whole board, it looks awesome, but how can i make the flakes go down further?!

As the forums are in effect three parts, the overall_footer won't show snow active.

I did actually think at first whether to state the code in overall header but to be honest I thought it a bit much to have it on every single page. Doing it that way could also get on members nerves easier.

I thought having it just on index would nicely welcome people to the forum but yet not interrupt with individual forums and posting, that's just my opinion though ;)

:D This is cool. I saw you posted this at phpBB.
I agree with it being a bit too much on every page but on the index will look good.
