Background Slider Master

Description

Background Slider Master is designed with a very simple interface so anyone can easily upload images and attach a fast loading responsive background slider to any page or post. This background slider was designed for flexibility. You can choose to create a single slider that displays globally on every page, or create as many background sliders as you want, and attach them to each page individually to show something different.

This plugin can easily show a large gallery with the convenient thumbnail navigation. There is also an option in the top right corner to show the original image ratio for galleries. Or choose to disable the thumbnail navigation for beautiful looking background images behind your content.

Please submit any feature request or support. Our team is eager to make this plugin the best background slider plugin with quick support and upgrades.

Easy To Use

Easy options for setting. its best part of that plugin. and also running successfully on my website. definitely will use again.

Version 2.0 rocks! Plugin is very use to use.

The drag and drop sorting for the background slider images makes this the easiest background slider plugin i’ve used.

One feature request: add play/pause button option. This would be useful when I make a whole page a background slider gallery of images.

Thank you for the plugin!

Necessary changes nicely done! Feature request: stop/start buttons

I like the design of your slider very much and am truly happy you added the drag and drop image sort mechanism in version 2.0.0!
Now the plugin is really easy to use!

As one of the next features of the slider could you maybe consider adding some start/pause/stop functionality? A simple yet rather basic feature.

Another nice thing’d be the possibility to choose the position of the thumbnail gallery: left, right, over, under the big images.

Thanks a lot for this nice and well designed plugin.

Looking forward to the next update!

Finally found a background slider plugin that has the scale option. There are some options I would like to see for the next few updates, but it’s a solid plugin.

Thanks!
