Site Background Slider

Awesome Background Image Slider Plugin for WordPress which creates fullscreen image slideshows inside your WordPress Site Background.

I don't understand how the images work. Can I just change the directory or does it have to be image/slider in the gallery?

You can set the directory to whatever you like, it is based from your WebSite root folder. So specifying 'images/slides' as an image location means that your images should be located for example as 'http://[YOUR SITE]/images/slides/image.jpg'. The default folder does not exist on setup, you will need to create it or set your own folder location.

How are the images displayed and read?

Images are read by the Plugin from the specified image folder location. All you have to do is optimize and place your images in that folder.

My background load slow and weird.

To make sure your images load quickly make sure the images are optimized (using an image editor), also make sure you dont have to many flashy Javascript thing running on the same page and the background slider will be super fast ;)

Nothing loads in my background, nothing happens?

Main cause of this usually is the jQuery / CSS files are not being loaded, returning a 404 not found error; check the paths in your setup (Best done using Firebug or a live code editor) For example, your site should be able to see this: http://YOUR SITE]/wp-content/plugins/site-background-slider/assets/jquery.min.js

If the file is there, but still cannot be read, check the folder permissions (should be readable, 755). Lastly also make sure your filename has no weird characters (For example ö, ü, ä, etc).

I have more questions. This FAQ is not very detailed?

This plugin has its own wiki documentation available at Press Pixels. Check it out for more answers!
