Could be more helpful
By , for WP 3.9.1

The article would be more helpful if it game more information - or at least mentioned or linked to a place to get more information - about properly adjusting the image: resolution, size, tiling, etc.

Needed a quick easy way to get a full-screen background image with no frills, and this was the best solution I found.

Exactly what I was looking for
By , for WP 3.8.1

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.

Yep - it does what it says!
By , for WP 3.7.1

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.

Doesn't work with WP 3.6

Make sure you don't have a background specified in your theme, and this will work just fine.

background-img only on homepage, not on pages themselves?
By , for WP 3.5.1

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 (mac problems?)
By , for WP 3.5.1

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...
