Hi All,

I know we're only just past midsummer but is anyone working on a Christmas theme for 2.1.2 by any chance?

If you want quizzes to add to the new SMF2.1 quiz mod go here . There are also walkthroughs in the forum to explain how to install them and other tips.

I know it's not the same thing, Dave, but there are a couple of mods here that add a little Christmas/Winter spirit to your forum.

Snow and Garland  /  and  Snowflakes

They're 2.1 capatible and both are Hooks only.  I've not seen the demo for Snowflakes but this is the demo for Snow and Garland:

(That one's kind of fun, whenever a Christmas light blows out, you can hear the bulb break.)  :D

Hi Grammy,

Yes I already have that on my site, but it's not the same as having icons and backgrounds like the one below ;)

Wouldn't be too difficult to add that background image to a suitable 2.1 theme.

I might just look into that SOoL

I recognise that. It's one of Mayday's images from the old Dziner Studio Christmas theme. Would be nice to credit her for it if you are planning on redistributing it (I don't think she would mind at this stage, as it was a free theme anyway).

Ant,

Yes you are correct, I think it's a great theme and not to over the top.

If I was good enough to create a theme based on that for 2.1 I would certainly credit her, but if you've seen any of my posts you'll know that I could never do that.

If I do manage to get something sorted for my own use then I will of course give her a mention somewhere

I did something like that image one Christmas by making it the entire header (like the screenshot attached from one of my test sites, although this one isn't a holiday image).

You could also make the entire background of your forum an image like another one of my test sites (except make it Christmasy, if that's a word):

But I still may not be getting it.  I'm famous around here for "not getting it".   :D

Nah, my sense of humor is pretty unsophisticated.  I'm just your typical "Corner Gas", "MST3K" variety.

I'm "mostly harmless".  O:)
