Here at Press Pixels we have just managed to release our first free plugin to the WordPress Community - quite a learning curve with SVN but surprisingly fast to get listed, thanks to the WP team for that! Some more info below:
The team at Press Pixels have just released a first free plugin, the WordPress Site Background Slider! This simple yet powerful plugin adds Fullscreen Images (read from a specified folder location) and creates a background slideshows inside your WebSite Background area.
A selection of 15 different texture effects can be overlaid onto the images, image display time / fade time can both be set, image order can also be shuffled and jQuery can also be disabled if required. Once this is setup your WordPress WebSite will display above the rotating images as shown in the Background Slider Demo.
