    Hi Myatu,

    thanks for your awesome plugin! Works amazing on all major browsers. I have only one issue with background overlay. It doesn't show up...
    Or rather it did, but (at least I think) when I updated WP to 3.4.1 the background overlay was gone... But I am not really sure if the cause is update...
    URL on website is: http://www.icm-beroun.cz/
    Thanks!

    It was a bug introduced with version 1.1.6, which will be corrected soon. Sorry about that!

    The overlay (white diagonal lines) doesn't show at my site, too, only the background image itself. I use the newest 1.1.6.1 version.

    Any idea?
    Thanks.

    puh, that was hard to find out, but with Firebug I saw it:
    the z-index of the overlay needs to be completely deleted:

    #myatu_bgm_img_group, #myatu_bgm_overlay {
        z-index: auto;
    }

    instead of

    #myatu_bgm_img_group, #myatu_bgm_overlay {
        z-index: -1997;
    }

    than the overlay shows again over the background image.

    Hi Csign,

    where exactly do I change this code?

    Or has the bug been solved by the developer? :)

    Thanks!

    P.S. It works when I use the original size, but not when I use full screen.

    Or should I say, good and simple.

    I've put this in the CSS (or custom.css) of my theme.

    I would not recommend to put in the CSS of this plugin, because with an update of the plugin, these CSS would be lost.

    Thanks Csign,

    added the above code as mentioned, but now the menu is not clickable, and on iOs not even images on the page are visible.

    As soon as I take out the code again, everything runs normal, i.e. images visible, menu items clickable.

    Hi,

    you need to adapt my example CSS to your site, for sure!
    Use Firebug and play in it with the z-index of my CSS classes above.

    May be you need to put here

    #myatu_bgm_img_group, #myatu_bgm_overlay {
        z-index: auto;
    }

    another z-index value, than my "auto".
    Within Firebug you can test it with positive or negative values, until you see the overlay. In my case, with my theme it only works if I quasi delete the original z-index value of "-1997" and change it therefor to "auto".

    I figured this all out with Firebug, give it a chance, too :-)

    I faced this same issue. Turns out this was because a background-color was added to the body tag via CSS. Removing the background-color property from the body tag fixed this issue! Now not only the background overlay displays correctly, but its opacity setting is also applied!

    Edit: If you still can't see the overlay, try reducing the background image opacity to less than 100%

    Hi everyone,

    Sorry for the long delay in this, but the problem should be resolved in the 1.1.11 version.
