If you want animated falling snow effect on your blog like on this page you should read this article.

Everything you should do to add this effect to blogger blog is to :
  1. Copy this javascript code:

  3. Go to Layout.

this script consumes a lot of CPU to render (my X windows jumps at 100% on one of the CPU cores)

Mark said...

For Stephanie aka smacky and Norrdalen :
Glad to help you.

For rds :

Yes it is true. JScript runs on client machine but on the other side people like snowing effect :)

This is the first snow that I have gotten to work but it's only snowing on one side. What should I do.

Genny said...

When I added this to the gadgets on my blog at blogspot, the script made the snow come out of the side in a straight line. Then I got an error message saying script error html 5. I've used it before and it worked great, but I can't get it to work now. )o:

The same for me it is not working now after I change to blogger templates. What can I do?

Q said...

I'm not sure this works with the new Blogger templates. Any ideas why not?

Heather said...

I'm having the same problem Genny describes. I used this last winter with no problem, but now, I just get a little line of rapidly-flickering white dots. Any advice?

Heather said...

Hi! This is an amazing script. I like it! Much better than any marquee code. But I have just one problem, any idea why I have a scroll bar that now appears at the bottom of my site, it comes and goes?

Hi! Mark...
Do you have a javascript for a rain code or do you and your readers, know of a website where I could go in order to install a rainscript on my blog that work?

I visited a website that had a rain code that worked, but my computer crashed and I lost the website address.
Thanks,
DCD

Kelly Jeanette Swift said...

Not working for me on a blogger template. Can you help?

Mark said...

To Kelly Jeanette Swift:
Did you follow the steps?

If snow effect doesn't work you can send step by step what you do and then maybe I can answer to you.

Daniel said...

For me, the little dots race horizontally across the top of the screen, this is also the case though for all the other snow effects I tried.

Ginevra Rodex said...
