Background Manager version 1.0.6 released

on January 28, 2012 in WordPress with no comments by

Version 1.0.6 of Background Manager has been released today!

There were a few minor bug fixes based on reports from other users. I have also changed the code for the ‘Slide’ and ‘Cover’ effects as they did not account for browser windows smaller than 1024 pixels wide. This width is the ‘cut-off’ for the CSS code Background Manager uses and will not reduce background images any smaller than that, switching to centering instead. read more →

Background Manager version 1.0 released

on January 21, 2012 in WordPress with no comments by

Background Manager has progressed out of its Beta stage with today’s release of version 1.0!

New features have been added, which allows you to select from a number of Transition Effects – or none at all – for the background images. This applies only to full-screen background images that change at a specified interval. The effects, in addition to the original Crossfade, include Slide and Cover. The Slide effect “pushes” the old image out of the way, whereas the Cover effect will slide a new image on top of the old one. This can be set to happen from any of the four positions on the screen. It is also possible to set the Transition Speed now, which before was fixed to 600 milliseconds – it can now be set from 100ms (0.1 second) to 7500ms (7.5 seconds). read more →

Background Manager version 0.9.3 released

on January 14, 2012 in WordPress with 1 comment by

An update to Background Manager (0.9.3) has been released today, which adds support for a user-defined background opacity. In combination with the background color, this will allow the user to set a “brightness” of the background, without having to edit any of the images.

The update also addresses an issue where background overrides, either on a page, post or a custom post type, would not be honored if the plugin was set to select a random image at each browser session. It would remember only the first random image, regardless whether the current viewed post or pages used a different image set. read more →
