Yes, theres loads of ideas out there, some more evil than others. I have an idea for next year already :twisted:

Personally I like just having the fruit flys as people will wonder why they cant brush them off of the screen. The spiders are better for Halloween IMHO but as always, the choice is yours.

It's disgusting !!!
And I love it :D

And btw: to set the amount of bugs (spiders AND flies) open bug-min.js und find "maxBugs:".

And another thing: It's very disturbing when you write a new post. Maybe it's possible to automatically turn off the ext while writing a new post ?

Thats why I placed it on the index page only. It'll be very annoying when trying to read a post as well as type a new one.

Glad you 'like' it

Hi

A quick question: is it possible to change

Code: Select all

{% if S_INDEX %}
to another variable to view the insects maybe only on the portal-startpage ?

Yes, assuming that your portal has a similar switch. Without know what extension you are using I can not advise further.

Working nice and it does not collide with my others extensions like loading circle and other mouse effects. I with more custom effects could be added switched on and off by ACP and sure an date option when the extension is turn off and on by automatic time settings with the differ effects,

Like with April "Falls", can we set this to become active on a certain date?

This seems more appropriate for Halloween, so 10/31 might be a date I'd set (maybe with Fred The Bat!). :)
