  • One thing I’ve been missing for ages in WordPress in the Custom Background page is an option to fill the screen with the background image (background-size: cover).
    Please add this option in core.

    Keep up the good work! 🙂

  • I’m not a member of the dev team, but from my own perspective I can’t see this ever being added as a core function. The main reaosn behind this is that it is a visual/layout issue, and that’s meant to be dealt with by themes, not core.

    What is the reason you want this in core, Jon?

    The Settings page for Custom background have all the other options to manage the background except for the size. Therefore, I think it belongs in Core.

    Settings page for custom background??? Where exactly do you find that, because I don’t have that on any of my WordPress sites. There’s a very (very) good chance that that’s a settings page added by your theme, and styled to look like a “standard” WordPress admin page.

    catacaustic: If your theme has support for custom background then you will see this settings page.

    I wonder what is the reason it’s not in core. It might be because it’s not well supported in older browsers

    There’s also this, taken directly from that page…

    Custom Backgrounds is a theme feature that provides for customization of the background color and image.

    So, the basics are already in core, but your theme must enable it in order to use it. Not all themes want or need this, and that’s why it’s not an automatic built-in function.
