Completely parametrizable with type and number of images falling on the screen (not only snowflakes): you can use the 'flakes' image folders prepared by installation in the module folder, or upload your own folders with custom groups of images in the 'images' folder thus you can alternately use them via parameter. You can set velocity, bottom limit coordinate for the images, where you want to stop the fall, dimension of images and so on. You can set parameters on your imagination ... you can see also come down dollars or flowers.
(The script doesn't appear within the page site and thus the page maintains the same weight).
Languages: italian and english.
Release 1.1 defines two new parameters:
Stacking order, useful if you want overlap the flakes to other elements of the windows and a parameter to obtain only vertical falling flakes.
Release 1.2 defines new parameters for swaying snowflakes.
Release 1.2.1 (J1.5) add German language
Release 1.3 Joomla 1.6 - 1.7 compatible
Release 1.3.1 (J1.6-1.7) add German language
Release 1.3.1 Joomla 2.5 compatible
Only needs two things:
1. Documentation for enabling :D
2. Make it be at the top of all items on the page. z-index: gazillion ;DD
The only problem I am having is that Its starting from under my unite revolution slideshow, despite I am published it in the top most module positron on my home page.
I am sure there must be an easy way around. Meanwhile if anybody have a clue please share :)
You must define the stacking order of the flakes relative to other elements of the window.
It may be necessary a very great number (i.e. 999999) to overlap to any dynamic windows or elements.
Thanks for reporting.
one feature i've been wondering about: how to allow users to disable the effect from front end?
Yes, you can even create falling effects with whatever you want.
Upload on images folder of your site a new folder with your desired images (small images) and set module parameters (Flake width/height, Folder of the collection of flake images and Base folder ... see parameter instruction).
Actually the only possibility to remove the snow effect is disable the module.
Thanks for reporting.
It gives just enough of a Christmas feel to make the site look festive but not so much as it becomes naff looking. There just aren't any downsides to this module. Five Stars all the way :-)
Dear ku0g, I waited ten days from when this your rewiew has been published on this site (January, 17) to see if you would correct your criticism, also as a result of emails that occurred between us. Nothing of this!
Therefore I'm allowed to write my version. You have contacted me the first time on December 31, 2010, followed by other six email to which I replied always promptly. I've tried immediately to solve your problems that didn't depend by my module snowfalling, but from another similar module that you haven't been able to completely uninstall (just read the source of your home page). In my emails I've shown this to you beyond a reasonable doubt! I gave you much of my time. Since January 2 your problem is fully solved.
