Can I create snowflakes/hearts etc sprinkling and dropping down over the page?


(Gabrielle Vickery) #1

I have a client who wants to be able to use ‘seasonal’ effects on her website, so in winter just a sprinkling of snowflakes floating down the page for a minute or so, then hearts at valentines, that sort of thing.

Is there a stack that will do this?

This link can fix your snowflakes request out.

As for your hearts you might want to do some googling around that i’m sure there’s some code you enter into an html stack that would do it maybe :fearful:

Hope this helped :+1:

Joe Workman has a free stack you can check out:

I am using Joe Workmans “Let it snow” stack on the first page of this site during winter: http://www.ristorante-calimero.de
I have used a FontAwesome icon for the snowflakes by simply using <i class="fa fa-asterisk"> instead of “*” or similar “normal” symbols (I had to also add a FontAwesome stack to enable FontAwesome for the theme I’ve been using). This way you can choose any icon from the FontAwesome website.

Don’t put snowflakes or flying hearts on websites please :wink:

I know! I know! I’m going to try to talk the client out of it. But I do at least need to know if it’s possible ;-p.

You may want to take a look at our recently released Hearts Stack, that does exactly what your client wants: http://rwtuts.net/stacks/hearts/

Just a heads up, Joe just updated Let It Snow so it contains Font Awesome code in it. So if your theme does not include Font Awesome, you no longer need to add a Font Awesome stack to the page.

Some other cool updates, it will work with Total CMS toggle stack so if you have it on a site with Total CMS, your client can turn on or off the snow/icons.

It is now also configurable with Joe’s Tardis Stack

Enjoy!

Let It Snow worked when I updated it and set snowflakes to hearts, colors to red, and previewed. Hearts falling. Then when I changed the auto start/stop times to Valentines Day only, it stopped working. Even when I toggle auto start/stop off. Any suggestions?

can you take a screenshot of your settings and post them here? Works fine for me.

Hi @zeebe. I restarted RW and now all is well. Yay! Should’ve done that after the updates I guess. Thanks!

Glad to hear it is working! Don’t forget to use the Empire and Rebel icons on May the 4th!! :smiley:
