Well darn, i ain't having any luck with this one either...

Here's an irony for you if it's any consolation, even though it's snowing here on my website, when I tried making it snow on another website, it didn't work. The two websites are on the same server, too, so I don't get it. Go figure!

Edited:
Maybe it has something to do with uploading the snow.js file as Binary versus ASCII.

Hint: When I've had similar problems with other websites, I've often studied the source code on a site that worked, and then copied it exactly until I could get it to work on one of my websites.

It should go without saying that I was careful not to break any copyrights while copying, and pasting code.  Roll Eyes

Thanks Bill, Good stuff there. This is a bit different and i can't get it to work.but i'll stay at it. wonder y its not working...

I couldn't get it to work either. Sorry about that.

However, I did manage to find another script that works. I may leave it on my site until after the holidays (subsequently removed). Getting it to work is a 3-step process (starting with instructions on this page).

Or more directly as follows:

1. http://javascript.about.com/library/blsnow1.htm

2. http://javascript.about.com/library/blsnow2.htm

3. http://javascript.about.com/library/blsnow3.htm

For me personally, I didn't quite get in step 2 that I needed to create a simple text file called "snow.js" without the quotes. But it's easy to create. Just highlight and copy the code from the text box you see on that page, place it in a simple text editor such as Notepad, and save it as a simple text file (but without the txt extension; just the js extension). Then upload it to the same directory as the page you want snow on.

Also, I almost forgot to copy the 2 snowflakes that are provided on page 1 of the instructions. Once copied, just upload them to the same directory as your web page.

I didn't mess with the scripts and code that were provided, but apparently you can edit whatever you need to add different types of snowflakes, etc.

Happy Holidays!

By the way, if what you see isn't what you want in terms of the snowflakes themselves, it seems that you can use other snowflake graphics that will better suit your taste.

Also, I found these particular instructions after doing a quick search on Google. As such, you can surely find a number of other snow falling scripts as well.  Wink

Maybe this site is the place you can get this? Seems like it might be.
