Awesome plugin for managing background images
By , for WP 3.8

Awesome plugin to manage your rotating background images. You can even assign a specific set of background images per page.

Great potential

This is a great plugin however, it appears to disable the Yoast WP SEO plugin. Has anyone else noticed this?

Clean and simple customization
By ,

It was fun playing with it, I customized it fully and as I figured the amount of time the developer spent on supporting the plugin, I had to make a donation.

aaaaaawesome!
By , for WP 3.7.1

This is an amazing plugin and thanks a lot for your effort. I've a question since I'm quite new to WordPress. Can I use one background image as a layout and place links on some of the items on the background? The site I'm building now is: http://www.denizkaymaraz.com/

If I can do this with the help of your plugin, I'll definitely go for it but if not, I'll have to go back to coding with JS.

Thanks in advance for your answer and thanks again for the plugin :)

Works, Excellent Support
By , for WP 3.7

The background manager works great, displays a variety of images on my home page. I cycle through every 5 seconds. I only show the images on my home page and that option is very useful because my other pages are mostly text.

I had a problem when I upgraded WordPress. The technical support was excellent, quick response to my post, fixed within hours!!! </strong?

Can not switch it off on mobile
By , for WP 3.6

Works fine on computer but on mobile the experience is not perfect and an option to switch it off there is missing (would reduce traffic, speed up site and no need to handle touch events and mobile scrolling).

Therefore 4 stars, really good work.

Background Image Link Function is Broken
By , for WP 3.6.1

I would love to give this plugin five starts, but it's been several days and there has been no support resolving a very common problem: background images don't reveal a clickable link.

UPDATE: I eventually purchased Custom Backgrounds for WordPress for $20, which offers full support and working URL links.

GREAT worth the setting up
By , for WP 3.6.1

Took some trial and error to set up, but i found an extensive dialogue and help section on the developer's site - better than on wordpress support page. It solved my main problem of image being cut off - TURN OF "CENTER" option when choosing full screen.
Because this does such specific things, it requires a little set-up. But the developer has tried to make it easy using little flag prompts to get you headed in right direction .EXCELLENT user interface and fore thought. Very pro plug in. Toss the guy some cash if you use it. I tried doing this kind of thing on my own and it twisted my brain.
