I once created this plugin for someone ... they needed to set backgrounds on a per-post basis.

Installation is simple:

  1. Download MetaBackGround
  2. Unzip
  3. upload to yoursite/wp-content/plugins directory
  4. activate

Now all you need to do is write a post. Then add custom fields to display a background image: BGIMAGE : provide the link to your image as value. BGIMAGECSS : as value, enter the how you want the image to be displayed. Examples:

  • "no-repeat fixed center" will make the image stick to the middle of the page and not scroll
  • "no-repeat top center" and the image floats at the top of the page
  • "repeat-x" will repeat the image along the x-axis (that's the width of the page)

Tip: you can upload an image via the image upload function. Upon upload, you'll immediately see the link to the image you just uploaded. Copy it and paste into the custom field value.

Requires: 2.0.2 or higher
Compatible up to: 2.7
