4.6 out of 5 stars
By , for WP 3.7.1

This is an amazing plugin and thanks a lot for your effort. I've a question since I'm quite new to WordPress. Can I use one background image as a layout and place links on some of the items on the background? The site I'm building now is: http://www.denizkaymaraz.com/

If I can do this with the help of your plugin, I'll definitely go for it but if not, I'll have to go back to coding with JS.

Thanks in advance for your answer and thanks again for the plugin :)

Works, Excellent Support
By , for WP 3.7

The background manager works great, displays a variety of images on my home page. I cycle through every 5 seconds. I only show the images on my home page and that option is very useful because my other pages are mostly text.

I had a problem when I upgraded WordPress. The technical support was excellent, quick response to my post, fixed within hours!!! </strong?

Can not switch it off on mobile
By , for WP 3.6

Works fine on computer but on mobile the experience is not perfect and an option to switch it off there is missing (would reduce traffic, speed up site and no need to handle touch events and mobile scrolling).

Therefore 4 stars, really good work.

Background Image Link Function is Broken
By , for WP 3.6.1

I would love to give this plugin five starts, but it's been several days and there has been no support resolving a very common problem: background images don't reveal a clickable link.

UPDATE: I eventually purchased Custom Backgrounds for WordPress for $20, which offers full support and working URL links.

GREAT worth the setting up
By , for WP 3.6.1

Took some trial and error to set up, but i found an extensive dialogue and help section on the developer's site - better than on wordpress support page. It solved my main problem of image being cut off - TURN OF "CENTER" option when choosing full screen.
Because this does such specific things, it requires a little set-up. But the developer has tried to make it easy using little flag prompts to get you headed in right direction .EXCELLENT user interface and fore thought. Very pro plug in. Toss the guy some cash if you use it. I tried doing this kind of thing on my own and it twisted my brain.

Works as described. Non technical setup.

Very happy with this plugin, the only thing I miss is the scaling, but the rest is very nice :)

Wow - A near perfect plugin
By , for WP 3.6

This is a masterpiece!! After upgrading my web server to php 5.3 this plugin worked wonderfully! This is opening all kinds of new design possibilities for me!

Thank you!

Fantastic bit of code

Works extremely well, and fits snuggly in the Appearance section as if the boys at WordPress wrote it themselves.
