    Hi Erik,

    If you mean to use the slideshow as a background for your website, it’s possible by using a custom stylesheet. You can read how to create one in the FAQ section.

    You’ll need to add the slideshow as close as possible to the start of the ‘<body>‘ element, which is probably in your theme’s ‘header.php’. In the custom stylesheet you should set the ‘.slideshow_container‘ class to look like this:

    .slideshow_container { position: fixed; }

    For now, you’ll have to set the slideshow’s height to a fixed number of pixels to make it show. However, I’m going to add the possibility to set a height of 100% in an upcoming release. At the momnt setting the slideshow’s height to 100% doesn’t work correctly.

    Best regards,

    De groeten terug! 🙂

    OK, I’ve been struggling with his all day… everything works fine, except the slideshow ends up on top of all other content. Since not all content has a position element, z-index is no help… other than that, well, yeah, it works, but as a foreground not a background.

    Love the plug in and love your level of support — I just hope there’s an answer for this.

    OK, solved — I just needed to add z-index: -99999; to the css… and now I feel foolish…

    Thanks so much for the great plug in and the superb support!
