Another update for Background Manager has been released today, which fixes a number of bugs and introduces a new option.
Based on a suggestion in the WordPress Support forum, the new option provides a method for remembering the last shown background image. This allows Background Manager to continue with that image on another page, provided that page uses the same Image Set (no override).
A bug related to click-able background images has been fixed. Previously, the option to open a link in a new window did not work as intended, opening the link in the same browser window instead.
Another minor bug was related to the Pinterest “Pin it” button. The way Background Manager handled it, with each new image shown as the background, an entry was added to the browser’s history affecting the back-button functionality. This was fixed in time for the release of 1.1.6.
A lingering issue was related to Full Screen background images, which hopefully has been resolved. Depending on the theme, the background images could potentially be moved “out of sight”, and thus give the impression Background Manager did not work. This was due to a positioning error.
Also, under certain circumstances, the natural image width and height could not be obtained. This was required to calculate the image ratio and positioning, which at times resulted in a width or height of zero, thus invisible. A different method for obtaining the natural width and heigh has been implemented, based on the browser’s capabilities.
Finally, a bug corrected as part of the development process, was a related to how Background Manager filtered the Media Library functions. It caused some issues with adding new images to the Image Set.
On to the next version!
Edit: Version 220.127.116.11 has been released as a hot-fix to some reported issues of screen elements “missing”.
