WFS Let It Snow

Description

This is a straight forward Plugin that does not require the use of any shortcodes or widgets. Simply head for Settings > WFS Let It Snow and configure your snow flurry! This plugin makes use of Jason Brown’s brilliant jQuery plugin Snowfall, all credit for the snow effect must go to Jason! This is being distributed as a FREE plugin from Winking Frog Studios, we hope you all have a wonderful festive season!

There is a really good chance this plugin will work with earlier versions of WordPress, but the chances are an active site will be at WordPress 4.0 or higher anyway.

Plugin Usage & Shortcodes

Once installed and activated you will find a ‘Let It Snow’ menu item in your Settings. The settings for the plugin are all very straight forward, just play around with them until you get the desired effect.

Reviews

Works perfectly on IE and Chrome, not on Safari

I have tried several plugins to get the snow on my wordpress sites, and this is the only one that actually worked (i failed with WP Snow effect and Snow Flurry)

Though I noticed “WFS Let it snow” doesn’t work on Safari. It works fine with Chrome and IE

Thanks for the great plugin!

Nice on PC, too much on mobile

Worked great for the desktop version of my site, but was just way too much for the mobile view – even “light flurry” setting looked like an Alaskan snow storm!

Nice!

Belgium looks set to have one of the warmest winters on record, a balmy +10/15°c. This plugin makes up for the white Christmas I’ve been dreaming of but will sadly be missing. At least it’s going to snow on our blog!
