Fade to Focus


Fade to Focus is a small plugin that I created to fade out distracting elements of my blog when someone is reading. By default it will fade out the whole background and just show the “.content” element after 20 seconds. This is to help readers focus on whats important on the page


  • Just showing the main page content


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload fadefocus folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
