Slowed my website down and conflicted with other plugins
By , for WP 4.2.1

a) This plugin hasn't been updated in a LONG time. No bueno.
b) This plugin slowed my website down as it struggled to download the background. Also no bueno.
c) When I had this plugin and Wunderground (weather) plugin activated at the same time, my website would not work on a mobile device, period. It completely broke my site.

However, this plugin does have more options than any other background plugin, which is nice. And it does technically work, as long as you never want to use Wunderground on your website.

I switched over to Random Backgrounds (after trying other background managers that also didn't work) and found that my website sped right up and there was no conflict with other plugins. My hearty recommendation is to use Random Backgrounds (https://wordpress.org/plugins/random-backgrounds/) instead.

No support and it just quit working...
By , for WP 3.8.1

Although I like the plugin, the lack of support takes at least three stars off. Months go by and no response from the author. I don't understand why someone would take the time to create something this good and then ignore your clients when they ask you questions.
