What does that mean? Unfortunately I am unfamiliar with the Jewish holidays and symbols.

I can easily do that on Deep Island for everyone to see the Menorah. I could even automate this if someone told me sensible dates for turning it on and off again ;-)
I prefer e-mails to "diafero arcor de" (after adding the at and the dot) over PMs.

The dates are different each year. I don't know how they are calculated but you can Google them. So even if you automate this you need to store hard coded dates several years ahead.
I had a working automation for this which should be good until 2020 but it was kind of ugly. I had to work around too many exceptions like the event beginning in November or even extending into January the next year. I have already started rewriting the code to make better use of the epoch format so watch your pm. ;)

Okay, will do ;-)

Should the Menorah be enabled during that holiday only (so that I should wait for two more weeks), or already in advance?

IMO hiding the menorah itself should not be automated. That way you can still choose to show it without candles during the rest of the year.

It actually does happen the same time each year and last for eight days, but its on a lunar calendar the one most people use is the solar calendar. :D
So according to the lunar calender Christmas happens at a different time each year :lol:

I finally installed D'Lanor's code on the Shard. So. hopefully, everything should work automatically on December 20th.
Now I just have to code something similar for the christmas tree in Sharper's office^^

I thought you already had that. :shock: That is in fact much easier. I can save you some time. See my PM.

Keep in mind that Offline the UAM KI plugin already handles the seasonal stuff in Sharper's office (and the Neighborhood). So there might be conflicts if this goes into the Offline KI as well.

Actually the automatic Offline KI changes are only applied online (Delin winter, Menorah, and soon the tree), so that people can control anything to their liking offline. This should not be a problem.

(There might be some conflicts between the Relto page support that's now in Offline KI, and the one in the UAM KI plugin, when I release the next version for people to install offline... maybe I should disable the internal one if UAM KI plugin is detected. OTOH, Relto pages are the only feature of the UAM plugin ever used, as far as I know, so there's not really any reason to install it, now that it's unmaintained. DI does not have it installed.)

Thanks for the christmas code, I'm having a look at it.
EDIT: Done :) It's online.
