on March 4, 2012 in WordPress with 4 comments by

Today brings us version 1.0.24 of Background Manager.

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 →

WP Flickr Background 1.1.1 released!

on April 5, 2011 in WordPress with 1 comment by

Version 1.1.1 of the WP Flickr Background plugin has been released today. This is a minor release to bring the plugin in line with the recent WordPress version 3.1.1 release, and corrects a bug.

The (x)HTML output has also been cleaned up to pass the W3C validation for XHTML 1.0 Transitional, in part due to the reported bug where the main configuration settings would not be saved in MSIE.


  • Updated plugin for WordPress 3.1.1 compatibility
  • Changed: Cleaned HTML to pass W3C validation / XHTML 1.0 Transitional compliance.
  • Bug fix: Main configurations are not saving in MSIE due to malformed DIV/FORM tags.

Lazy loading Disqus in WordPress

on March 20, 2011 in Projects with 11 comments by

As you may have noticed, I have recently updated theme of my website. I’ve also cleaned up some hardly used features, including the translation bits; It seemed to annoy people more than anything.

But for some reason, the pages with single posts – like this one – were slow to complete loading. A quick look in Firebug showed that there were quite some delays getting images from the Disqus CDN. Since I don’t own that content, nor could I modify the Disqus Javascript, I had to come up with a solution to this.

From working with jQuery, I remembered that their Disqus comments only get loaded once you’ve reached a certain point on the page. Looking into their solution, I figured I could implement the same method with Disqus in WordPress. read more →
