FullBack

Description

This plugin provides a very simple method for implementing a full-screen background image using the BackStretch
jQuery plugin. FullBack modifies the standard WordPress Background feature in the Appearance menu. Even if your
theme disables the Background menu item, FullBack checks then revives it if needed.

All you have to do after installing and activating FullBack is proceed to Appearance -> Background, upload
your background image and save. You can ignore the other image settings that WordPress provides as they are
irrelevant when using FullBack.

FAQ

Where do I upload the background image?

Login to WordPress admin area, then go to Appearance -> Background.

My theme disables the WordPress Background menu item. How do I re-enable it?

FullBack does this for you by checking to see if the Background menu item is available, then
re-enables it if it’s not already there.

When I select a background image, a Display Options section appears. Do I need to specify any settings here?

The options for Position, Repeat and Attachment are irrelevant when using FullBack, so you can ignore these settings. However, the Background Color option is still relevant, as it will be displayed until your specified background image has loaded.
