Improved Let It Snow!

Description

Update Dec 23, 2012

Updated snow falll script to work with Wibiya. Localized Settings Page. Moved the Settings Page under main Settings. Uses register script and enque script.

Update Jan 30, 2011

Updated the plugin to the latest stable version of the snow script. Added additional options to the plugin admin page.

Update Nov 07, 2009

I have not been supporting this plugin for a long long time, almost 2 years in fact. Since Christmas is round the corner, I thought I should give this plugin a nice refresh. I have updated the snow script to the latest version. Best of all, I have added a plugin settings page so it’s easier for those who are not comfortable with tweaking code.

History

In 2007, WordPress.com introduced a falling snow options for its users after Matt Mullenweg asked for a falling snow script. Because the feature was only available to WordPress.com users and not self-hosted WordPress blogs, I took the falling snow code and made a plugin that exactly the same thing. All users needed to do was to download and activate the plugin to have beautiful falling snow flakes on the blogs.

Notes & Credits

The falling snow script used in this plugin is originally by Scott Schiller.
This plugin is originally written by Aen Tan and later improved by S H Mohanjith.

FAQ

The snow looks weird

Check that your theme is not applying styles to all IMG elements. If you are not sure what this is, contact your theme’s author.

It’s not working

If it does not work for you. Check that your theme has the wp_footer() function call in footer.php. If it does not, add <?php wp_footer(); ?> just before the closing </body> tag.
