    Hi, Brilliant plugin which only seems to work for me in "normal size" mode also Background Overlay does not work for me. I've read posts on this forum but haven't found the answer (tried changing css z-index) I currently only using one other plugin that I have disabled to see if this is the problem but alas it is not. I'm using WP 3.5.1 with your latest plugin. The site is a work in progress: http://www.moodysow.com
    any help would be gratefully received.

    In addition, I've looked at the generated code in the browser source, when the full screen mode is active the body style (that appears in the header file) is: background-image: none. Thanks again for any help.

    Hi,

    Its currently using a fall-back method, meant for cases where JavaScript is disabled or for older browsers.

    It appears the theme is missing a wp_footer(); call in the footer, which is required for Background Manager to work (see http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Action_Reference/wp_footer ).

    Thankd for the quick response.

    The Footer is on all theme pages <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Any thoughts?

    Brilliant! Got it. I've used both:
    <?php get_footer(); ?> and
    <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    Is this going to pose a problem?

    The code get_footer(); is used to retrieve (and then inject) a file that contains the web page's footer. This file will be in your theme's directory/folder, aptly named footer.php, or its variants footer-{arbitrary name}.php. Preferably you add wp_footer(); in that particular file, which will make it easier for you to maintain things (as its only one file you need to edit).
