Holidays Just Around The Corner

Yes, it's fast approaching so to to be ahead of the curve, I'm asking if anyone has come up with some NEW holiday ideas for Ning sites in 2012?  Let's get the discussion going........

Ning has a boatload of holiday tweaks tagged "holiday" http://bit.ly/ZEa80j and "Christmas" http://bit.ly/STBUBw so let's add to the list!

fwiw http://iconfinder.com has some tried and true icons to dress things as well.

  • To get the ball rolling I threw these together really quick :-)

    these codes will add holiday lights and such to your module heads.  You can replace the image link with any image you prefer :-)


    Snowman

    .xg_module_head {
     background-image: url(http://api.ning.com:80/files/YFrakBDHHWoZ4qCj21itd6YbD3UPbyoV5C-i*w60OzMiBBWF2Dul9p2TGB-1HpMDiTKxv4iA6ybtgbb-CerIpA__/msg.gif)!important;
     background-size:100% 100%!important; }




    Christmas lights string

    DIV.xg_module_head {
     background-image: url(http://api.ning.com:80/files/H-IjJr6BZMUbP63OjSk8qUhhw2w8ZzlzXwBk*0LgLqxyDXTy3OEU0FwyKE*SowFa6W3icxdI3YMauaWIsJ142fOB9RF47gt-/BlinkingChristmasLights.gif)!important;
     background-size:100% 100%!important; }




    Flashing light bulbs

    .xg_module_head {
     background-image: url(http://api.ning.com:80/files/3Zb5*Lyap5D0wTjisPg3bjrA5zhQI6KOc96ONvquk12W6gE-g6JV4v8EhgsTUO6zsLx75kWu06d6MqatBbvKKKuwhXVz4HfQ/Animation1.gif)!important;
     background-size:100% 100%!important; }

    this is basically what it looks like when it's applied

      Sorry, George I am confused where is this code supposed to go and which module does it affect.  I tried it in the custom code and CSS advanced box and did not see any effect.
      • the way I have it written it should show up on all or at least almost all module heads

        if you implemented it in your design studio it should have worked you may have to wait a few minutes for your network catch to catch up. lol If you're adding in your NC custom code box you need to add it with the styles tags.  So add it like this

        <style>
        .xg_module_head {
         background-image: url(http://api.ning.com:80/files/H-IjJr6BZMUbP63OjSk8qUhhw2w8ZzlzXwBk*0LgLqxyDXTy3OEU0FwyKE*SowFa6W3icxdI3YMauaWIsJ142fOB9RF47gt-/BlinkingChristmasLights.gif)!important;
         background-size:100% 100%!important; }
        </style>

      • actually I wrote a code that you are using that is much like this one for the module head icons LOL :-) but for icons we needed to add padding to the code.

        • The snowmen had me literally LOL.  My daughter bought me a set of those glowing suckers when she was little.  hahaha!  Thanks George :)

          • You're welcome Kos :) you have a great day and a fabulous holiday

        • Thanks, George,  I works great now!   It would be better if the Module names were not behind the lights but I really appreciate your tip and code.

          • That's strange I've never seen it do that before.  Try adding this to the code and see if it does the trick.

            .xg_module_head {z-index: 111111 !important;}

            .xg_module_head H2 {z-index: 999999 !important;}

    • tried the snowmen on Leanna's page and did not work. http://4himalone2.ning.com/members/LeannaKinson

      Love the things you have been working on George.

      Anyone have anything for Thanksgiving?

      Blessings to all

      • Jim I've never done Thanksgiving other than mock up an image and place it on the homage page but here's a GIF with falling leaves.   Maybe someone can do something with it.
