Does what it says on the tin

Works beautifully and was really easy to set up.

After spending 2 hours struggling to set up a full page slideshow that would sit in the background using other plugins and JQuery that didn't want to work, I stumbled across this plugin.

Like it very much

I have one more idea,

can you add in overlay some fat line (to we can change color) to set it behind the blog, but before the background. I have empty space there.
Look at print screen:

Works great, and saved me tons of time.

This plugin is intuitive, uncomplicated, and a breeze to set up. I thought it would be harder, given the tasks it performs, but it's really easy and it works very well. Highly recommended!

Admin Area: not working | Sotreforont: not working

Tested on WP 3.5.1. unfortunately, this app crashed my whole admin area. I use:
http://wordpress.org/plugins/captcha/screenshots/
http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-conditional-captcha/
http://wordpress.org/plugins/better-wp-security/
maybe the plugin does not support Better WP settings for security.
Other apps seem to be working fine on the front end.
The used theme is Bazar.
On the back-end when I supposed to log in through my custom generated admin link it logged me in to standard /wp-admin and showed white screen; from the storefront I was clicking any button on the admin panel and it still would get me to the white /wp-admin screen. I guess your pluging does not want to work together with /CustomAdminLoginURLs, I mean it shows the login screen and all that, but after credentials just takes you to /wp-admin

I got back to my Admin Dashboard only after I deleted the plugin at /wp-content/plugins/background-manager

Will change to 5-star if fix provided.

New thread:
Now tested on completely clean WP installation with WP Secure plugin installed first and all tweaks enabled, then installed your plugin, and it works fine, no malfunctions. I guess that most important plugins like for security etc. have to be installed on a clean version otherwise they cause database malfunctions and crashes the whole website.

Easy to use and great settings

It looks great on my website. I wanted to code this on myself to customize my pages but this plugin already has what I wanted.

Thanks for your work.

Perfect!

I was scratching my head, thinking "wouldn't it be nice if there were an EASY TO USE, SUPER-SMART, FULL-SCREEN background plug-in? Heck, it could even have an image RANDOMIZER. And, it could let you decide where you want custom backgrounds. Wouldn't that be nice??" Well, here it is. Brilliant. Thanks for making the web a more beautiful place, and a more headache-less(?) place to create. My hat is off to you.
