I do not know if this is possible, or if you want to do it, but how about adding an option to decorate the forum for the holidays.

Example: 

Halloween
Theme's color changes to a shade of orange.
Maybe a Halloween image and text (Happy Halloween!) in the header of the forum.
This will all be automatically, and you can turn it off or on.

@SLGray hmm... I like it. It should be possible to detect the day using JavaScript and apply decorations on that specific day. I'll add it to my notes. Surprised

I saw this and thought I could do it, but @Ange Tuteur, for some reason, your scrollbar buttons don't change when I mess with them ._.

The code works finely however. I even matched the color with the color of your "view newest post" pictures and I used your little formula Wink

http://help.forumotion.com/t147986p30-forumactif-edge-a-free-modern-and-responsive-forum-theme#1023873

And it still works when a user changes the theme from an already selected theme to the default Razz

Code:
$(function() {
  var halloween = {
    month: 8,
    day: 31
  },

  now = new Date(),

  styles =
    '<style id="halloween">' +
      '.color-primary, .title, h2.u, .h3, .inner h1.page-title, .mainmenu:after, .forumline tbody .catHead, form.search-form input.search-keywords, input.search-button, .pagination span a, a.button1, a.button2, button.button2, input.button1, input.button2, input.button, #profile-advanced-add a, img[src*="?poll"], .fa_pseudo_radio:after, #tabs, body div.sceditor-dropdown .button, .codebox dt, blockquote cite, .sceditor-container .sceditor-toolbar, body #fa_toolbar, body #fa_toolbar_hidden, body #fa_toolbar #fa_right #notif_list li.see_all, #fae_sticky_nav_panel a:after, img[src*="color=primary"], .table1 thead th, .breadcrumbs, input[type="button"], input[type="submit"], input[type="reset"], input[type="file"], .fmd_awards td, #fmd_achievement_list .award, #achievement_progress div, #logo-desc { background-color: #F70; color: #000; }' +

      'a:not([style^="color"]), .forumline tbody .catHead a, .h3 a, .h3 span, .table1 thead th a, .title a, h2.u a { color: #000 !important; }' +
      'a:not([style^="color"]):not([class^="button"]):hover { color: #666 !important; }' +
      '.color-secondary, .forum-status[style*="locked=true"], img[src*="color=secondary"] { background-color: #650; }' +
      '#page-footer a, #footer_end, #footer_end a { color: #FFF !important; }' +
      '#page-footer a:hover, #footer_end a:hover { color: #AAA !important; }' +
      '::selection { background-color: #F70 !important; }' +
  '</style>';

  if ( now.getMonth() == halloween.month && now.getDate() == halloween.date && $('#fa_theme_selector').val() == 'Select a theme' ) {
    // Adds styles to <head> tag if default theme is loaded
    $('head').append(styles);
  }

  $('#fa_theme_selector').change(function() {
    // Checks if the default theme is chosen and sets theme accordingly
    $(this).val() != 'Select a theme'
      ?
        $('#halloween').remove()
      :(
        $('head').append(styles),
        $('#fa_theme_selector').css('background-color', 'black')
    );
  });

});

Hope this helps a little bit. Rose

You have the right idea going on, the only thing is that it's not edit-friendly ; the user would need to know how to define objects, edit the style string, and setup conditions for their custom holidays. This isn't bad if you're making a preset list of holidays, which is most likely what we'll be doing, but I do want to add some flexibility in so that people can add holidays which aren't available. I was thinking something along these lines :

1. User defines the holiday names and dates in a "holidays" object.
2. We loop over the object to check if today is any of the holidays.
3. If we get a hit, we'll add a class name to the body for that holiday.

I think including preset CSS for the holiday will be perfect, but it'll be optional in case the admin wants to make their own styles for that holiday. This is an example of what I mean :
Code:
$(function() {

  var month = {
    'January' : 1,
    'February' : 2,
    'March' : 3,
    'April' : 4,
    'May' : 5,
    'June' : 6,
    'July' : 7,
    'August' : 8,
    'September' : 9,
    'October' : 10,
    'November' : 11,
    'December' : 12
  },

  thisMonth = new Date().getMonth(),
  i;

  for (i in month) {
    if (month[i] - 1 == thisMonth) {
      document.body.className += ' month-' + i.toLowerCase();
      break;
    }
  }

});
This is an example using objects btw, you can use an easier and faster method for months by utilizing arrays instead. Wink

This'll add a class to the body depending on the month. Since we're currently in September, the class would be
Code:
.month-september
, so you can style by the month. loove

Oh, well that makes sense for multiple holidays.
