  • Hi Myatus,

    I love this fantastic plugin!!! Great job.

    I’m interested in seeing the script for the complex override. I have all your images, but I can’t find anything on how to do the css. I looked in the css but could not find it on your site or my install.

    I’d like to do as you did with something like the paper over the oranges.

    Thank you so much.

  • Oh, I just noticed that when I click on the [+], I get the background in the post. No problem. At the top I get the following:

    When I click on the Imported Directory I get the following:
    This is somewhat embarrassing, isn’t it?

    I noticed the last style in the complex override above the </head> in the source code had the following for the image set. So, I placed it in the css for the image set. It worked like a champ:

    body{background-color:#f9deaa;}#page{box-shadow:5px 5px 5px #333;background-size:100% auto;background-image:url(‘’);}.entry-content{text-align:justify;text-shadow:#fff 0 1px 0;color:#000;font-weight:bold;}.entry-content{text-align:justify;}#access{background:#943100;background:-moz-linear-gradient(#DC7A00,#943100);background:-o-linear-gradient(#DC7A00,#943100);background:-webkit-gradient(linear,0% 0%,0% 100%,from(#DC7A00),to(#943100));background:-webkit-linear-gradient(#DC7A00,#943100);}#access li:hover>a,#access a:focus{background:#db9300;}#site-generator{background:#E1B867;border-top:1px solid #E89421;}

    Great plugin!!!

    I see you’ve found the details of the complex override 🙂 When I get the time, I’ll add some more samples – with the code.

    As for the clicking through [ + ] and then the gallery title, I wish there was an elegant way of dealing with that actually, but seems to be a limitation of WordPress itself. The Image Set itself is “hidden” from public view, to prevent it from showing up in search results and archive listings as for many, that’s undesirable.


    On the complex override, when I make the background (paper) area translucent, it is not see-through on the Firefox browser. It just becomes a lighter opaque shade?

    Funny, I forgot how to set the complex override. LOL
    I looked everywhere, then remembered the bread crumbs I left here.
    Anyway, now I have a readme-complex-override.txt on my computer.

    Here’s the method:
    login to admin
    click on appearance
    click on background
    click on image sets at the top 4th line down to right of settings
    click on the image set you are using for a post
    scrolldown to custom stylesheet at bottom

    #page{box-shadow:5px 5px 5px #333;background-size:100% auto;background-image:url(‘’);}
    .entry-content{text-align:justify;text-shadow:#fff 0 1px 0;color:#000;font-weight:bold;}
    background:-webkit-gradient(linear,0% 0%,0% 100%,from(#DC7A00),to(#943100));
    #access li:hover>a,#access a:focus{background:#cccccc;}
    #site-generator{background-image:url(‘’);border-top:1px solid #cccccc;}
