This plugin lets provides a simple way to set an automatically scaled full screen background image.
Needed a quick easy way to get a full-screen background image with no frills, and this was the best solution I found.
Adding an image dies nothing, it uploads ok, but nothing appears in the preview. Just literally nothing happens. wp 3.6
I recommend this plugin. it works as you expected. Currently I'm using wp 3.9.
I was just looking for a simple way to have non-scrolling background image when I found this plugin. Even better than I wanted, this plugin re-sized and doesn't scroll. The other thing I appreciated was the great documentation that so many plugins lack.
Works really well. Just be sure you click the "File URL" and "Insert Into Post" buttons on the Image Edit screen (which you will see automatically after selecting an image/file to upload). Otherwise, the image won't appear ... because you didn't insert it.
I have also used the pro version - to add images to interior pages and by category/tag, etc - and was pretty happy with it.
Make sure you don't have a background specified in your theme, and this will work just fine.
The plugin is simple and works.
Do you know how to have the background-image only on a home static page? That is, I don't want any background-img in the pages themselves, only on the opening page of the website. Perhaps in the CSS itself? Thank you.
Instead, if you happen to know about a plugin that would do this it would be great also.
Great plugin btw.
Not working, when I load the plugin it gives me a bunch of error messages, some of them because the code is pointing to the wrong directory (supposed to be Apps/XAMPP/htdocs/wordpress.... not Apps/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/wordpress...)
Maybe it is because I am on a mac? I give it the average rating because I don't want to lower or raise this score, just an error. Might have to manually change some of these errors...
The theme I recently used was supposed to be responsive but the background image was not. Tried various CSS tweaks etc but still not joy. Then I found this and it did everything it claimed to. It is a little bumpy scrolling on windows phone 8 in portrait mode but apart from that no issues.
