  • I noticed that in the html code of the page between the tags “Background Manager” nothing comes out

    <! – Background Manager Start ->

    <! – Background Manager End ->

    There does not appear to be a background link associated with the image.

    – Go to the Background Manager (WP Admin -> Appearance -> Background)
    – click “Image Sets” menu for Background Manager
    – click on the active image set (or select the “Edit” link for it)
    – When you click on an image, in the upper-left corner you will find an edit icon (looks like a piece of paper/notepad with a pencil), click on it
    – On the “Edit Image” window that appears, near the bottom of it you will find a “Background URL” – enter the full URL, ie., “” here for that image. You will have to do this for any image that needs to be click-able.

    If you still experience trouble with it after setting the background URL, let me know and I will have another look at the website.

    [But the link in the background still does not work]

    Ok, you were right, I added the url in the wrong field.
    Now I have entered as indicated by you and in the html code of the page is:

    <! - Background Manager Start ->
    <a id="myatu_bgm_bg_link" class="myatu_bgm_fs" href=""> </ a>
    <! - Background Manager End ->

    But the link in the background still does not work.
    I think it’s a problem with css, but I can not solve it.

    Can you help me?
    thanks again

    The theme is covering the background with a <div> element. You can fix it by adding the following in the “Custom Stylesheet” of your active Image Set (found underneath the images):

    #page {
      max-width: 962px;
      margin: 0 auto;

    @domainor: The wp_footer() appears to be commented out in your theme:

    <!--<?'php wp_footer(); ?>-->

    It is required for Background Manager as well as many other plugins, so will have to be re-enabled again.

    @alexan1983: You have a similar problem to @domainor, but in your case, there’s a fatal PHP error that stops WordPress from completing the footer of your page:

    Fatal error: Image: Imagetype (jpg) not supported for reading. in .../home/wp-content/plugins/imageExtractor/class.ImageToolbox.php on line 461

    In addition, your theme has a <div align="center"> element that is covering your background. However, this div element does not have an ID or classname, so adding the following to the “Custom Stylesheet” of the active Image Set may not work:

    body>div {
      max-width: 990px;
      margin: 0 auto;

    Thanks myatu, you’ve solved my problem!
