Hello! I was wondering…how will this snow effect work when there are embedded videos in my page? Will the snow keep falling if a video is playing?

But will it lag?

Nevermind. Just bought your plugin and it works like a charm! It doesn’t lag at all, unlike the snow plugin I bought from FantasticPlugins. Keep up the good work fellas!

Thank you for purchasing! Glad to hear you’re satisfied!

Hello, Can I slow=speed up the Snow falling speed?

Hi, thank you for taking an interest in our items!

Yes, you can control the speed of snow.

Why there is no snow effect on IPhone(5C) & IPad both on Safari & Chrome? The specification on codecanyon states it is mobile friendly, how to ENABLE snow on mobile device?

thanks Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

can i change the sprites to any image?

Hi, thank you for taking an interest in our items!

It’s not a sprite, they’re individual images. But yes you can simply replace the image files. No problem there.

can i control the amount of snow.. by digit amounts?

You can choose the amount from the drop-down menu. From 5 to 110 in increment of 5.

does the plugin affect the whole of a website or can it (hopefully) be switched on/off for individual posts and pages?

Hi, thank you for taking an interest in our items!

You can show it only on the front page or on the whole site.

This is awesome! Next you should do a fireworks one.

Thanks! :)

Great plugin! Would you consider adding a start date to complement the current end date? This way we can set-and-forget the snow effect on our web site. Also, not choosing a year in these two settings would allow for annual recurring effects, without any interventions! Thanks!

Hi, thank you fro purchasing and those kind words!

We’ll add your suggestions to the to-do list. They seem reasonable :)

This looks awesome, and so cool you can bring so much holiday happiness to so many people (every viewer on every site that has your plugin)! I’d luv to install on one of my WP sites…Curious, it works fine on iphones and ipads…?

Thank you very much! Glad to hear you’re pleased ;)

Thnks for the Update, will ROCK IT on my main site again over Christmas!!

We’re happy to hear that – Let it snow! :)

“flakes can be turned into links for holding sweepstakes and easter egg type games”

Is there a possibility to display clickable gifts only one time per day per IP address to make sure one user can only participate once in sweepstake.

Hi, thank you for taking an interest in our items!

No, unfortunately that’s not possible.

Can these gift boxes be individually be linked to different content?

No, that’d require some minor modifications.

Is there a hack to place snowfall in background only?

Hi, thank you for purchasing.

No, there isn’t.

Sure, but please consider adding as on option in a future version. Thanks.

I’ll add it to our to-ti list.

I was wondering whether the snowflakes falling direction be reversed to go up rather than coming down…this way they could be replaced by balloons? Is this possible? I found that i can create my custom images and upload it to the folder..but i am uncertain about the code that needs to replaced. Can you please help out with the same, if possible?

Hi, thank you for purchasing.

Sorry, that’s not possible.

Errrm, live demo doesn’t appear to work. not seeing any snow whatsoever in safari 9 on mac. thank you.

seems to work on chrome however. can you fix for safari please before i buy?

Hi, thank you for taking an interest in our items!

We just tested it on the latest Safari on Yosemite and had no problems. Try it without the header bar –

Hi – pre sale question. Would this work over a Revolution Slider? Thanks.

LOL – it works!

But one thing I need to do is isolate the effect to one chosen webpage. It isn’t a front page and client doesn’t want it on any other. Any idea how to achieve this?

Unfortunately, you can’t do that. You can set the snow to appear only on the frontpage or the entire website – you can’t set it to one post/page only.

If you have any other questions, please contact our support team since we can’t provide any support via comments.



“per-user snow disabling – any user can disable snow if he doesn’t like it”

How do user disable snow ??

I can’t disable it on demo page

Hi, Thanks for taking an interest in our items!

You can choose to show a “Turn off snow” button which stops the snow if a users clicks on it :)


Before buy, want to make sure it works with all browsers. I saw a site with 5sec snow with chrome that image flakes aren’t showed, but worked fine in Firefox. There’s any reason?

Screenshot ->

Thanks in advance

Hi, thank you for taking an interest in our items!

We never had any complaints about users in Chrome – we guarantee it works. For the screen you sent it looks like the image files are missing, but the effect is working.

I have been using this plugin for a year or two now and love it! Great work!

Would love to see the following features:

1) Set start Date (such as December 1st) means it can run auto. I know you do end date but start would be great.

2) Export options. I run multiple sites and would love the ability to quickly export options and import into a different site.

Cheers :)

Keep up the good work.

Hi, thank you for the suggestions! We’ll try to implement them in the next release.

Just reactivated on my homepage for the season, Thnks Again WebFactory!

You’re welcome :)


Please advise if i can change flake snow to other image such flower ?

Hi, i am looking to buy the plugin, just want to know if this plugin causes high CPU load or CPU usage ?.

Hi, Thank you for taking an interest in 5sec Snow!

No, it doesn’t cause high CPU load or usage. The plugin is lightweight, and its jQuery code is only 3KB which means it won’t affect the performance of your site.

Love the plugin! I use it every December on my website, you can see it in action here: great job, cheers!

Hi, Thanks for purchasing and using 5sec Snow!

Also, thank you for the kind words – we love how it looks like on your site :)
