    Just need to know if i can place it as the background of the home page and how. Know basics of HTML and CSS. Thanks!

    PS: Tried to make a search but i can't seem to limit it to just this plugin.

    Yes, you can. You'll need to create a custom stylesheet to be able to hover the slideshow in the back of your website. The slideshow's container needs to be set to be positioned absolute, so the page content will be able to hover over it.

    You can find out how to create a custom stylesheet in the FAQ section. On CSS-tricks.com you'll be able to find a nice tutorial on setting images as a website's background. Setting the slideshow as a background should work in a similar way.

    This is where I get stuck… Where does the css get called? I've tried putting it in a div id in my php - the slideshow shows, but covers the content… I've had it working, except for this, but…

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Great plug in, just trying to extend it a bit…
