Fireworks

Description

Fireworks for you blog. Have a look at the live demo.

If you like this you might like my WordPress snowfall plugin as well.

My other plugins

Better tag cloud:
I was pretty unhappy with the default WordPress tag cloud widget. This one is more powerful and offers a list HTML markup that is consistent with most other widgets.

Move WordPress comments:
This plugin adds a small form to every comment on your blog. The form is only added for admins and allows you to move comments to a different post/page and to fix comment threading.

Theme switch:
I like to tweak my main theme that I use on a varity of blogs. If you have ever done this you know how annoying it can be to break things for visitors of your blog. This plugin allows you to use a different theme than the one used for your visitors when you are logged in.

Rhyming widget:
I wrote a little online rhyming dictionary. This is a widget to search it directly from one of your sidebars.

Snow and more:
This one lets you see snowflakes (or other, custom images) fall down your blog.

FAQ

Q: I see no fireworks.
A: Please make sure that your template uses the wp_footer() and wp_head() template tags. They should be in your header.php and footer.php, see the theme development page.

Q: I still see no fireworks.
A: Please send me a link to your blog. It’s quite possible that some doctype combinations or browsers will not work. If somebody complains I might try to fix it.

Q: The fireworks look odd, there’s a border around them, they have a background etc.
A: Add img.nkfireworks { border: 0 } at the end of your style.css (or change the CSS property you need to change).

Q: Why don’t you have nicer explosions/rockets?
A: Sorry, I’m not a designer. Feel free to send me more properly licensed pictures that I can include.
