Update 2013-12-09: jSnow is not compatible with recent versions of jQuery. Download my latest falling snow WordPress plugin at https://github.com/joshmcrty/jam-flurry. All other information below remains accurate.
Update (12/12/2011): I made a couple of small tweaks to optimize the file size after noticing an issue with the WordPress 3.3 update today. If you downloaded version 0.1 of this plugin, I recommend grabbing version 0.2. The link to the plugin above has been updated to point to the new version.
If you want to add this to your WordPress site, download my jSnow Falling Snow WordPress Plugin, unzip the contents, and upload the jsnow folder via FTP to your WordPress plugins directory (wp-content/plugins/). Or, you can use WordPress’ built-in plugin uploader by following these steps:
First, go to your Plugins page and click the button:
Next, click the
jsnow.zip file that you downloaded. Then click the button:
Once the plugin has been uploaded and installed, click thelink.
You should now have falling snow at the top of your site!
Note: This plugin has no configuration options (yet) and it is not date-sensitive (yet). You’ll need to deactivate it from the Plugins page when you no longer want to display the “falling snow” effect on your site. If you want to change the options, you can open the
jsnow.jQuery.js file in a text editor and modify the default values at the bottom of the script.
