Discussion on Allground - Fullscreen Backgrounds for WordPress

Hey man, this looks perfect.

Just wondering, when I go to the demo it shows normal grey background while loading and then shows the image.

Is it possible to have this load before the content of my page?

Elliot

Hi, different themes have different page markup so I designed this in a bulletproof way that worked on all of them, and this involves adding them at the end of the page to make sure that other elements are already rendered and the background can be attached safely. That’s why it’s rendered at the end.

Hello,

Do ou think it is possible to create a aleatory list of the videos background ?

Thanks.

Elliot

Hi, that’s not currently possible.

Default-user

Thanks for your answer :)

Hello Elliot, ( pre-purchase question .. )

I’m looking through a lot plugins for a narrowcasting solution for a new customer. Is it possible to use a youtube playlist that plays in a loop so that at the end of the playlist, it skips back to number one? Or is this maybe possible with the video-pattern-overlay functionality you are showing?

Thanks in advance!

Elliot
Hi, the YouTube video background type has a playlist functionality, see this screenshot, http://codecanyon.net/theme_previews/4819233-allground-fullscreen-backgrounds-for-wordpress?index=2&url_name=allground-fullscreen-backgrounds-for-wordpress you just need to add the video ids (you can later drag & drop to sort them) and if the Loop checkbox is set (also visible in the image) the playlist will resume from the first video once the last video ended.

Hi,

Will your plugin allow me to set one image for the main background and a different image for the body/container background?

Elliot

Hi, Allground allows you to set only one image, or video or YouTube video or map as background.

Hello,

Is it possible to fade in the div #allground-container with your custom css ou javascript ?

Elliot

Hi, yes, and actually there’s already a thread in the support forum for Allground where I explained how to do it to a user. Once you register and log in, access this thread http://themesrobot.com/topic/possible-to-make-videos-and-maps-fade-in/

Default-user

Thanks for your Answer.

It’s PERFECT !!!

Great code !

Elliot

Good to know you got it working fine! cheers

Hello!

Pre-sale question:

I want to add links to the background image…

Is it possible?

thanks!

Elliot

Hi, links are added to the image title/caption shown at the bottom left. While it’s possible to add them to the images, I didn’t wanted to build the plugin like that because in certain site layouts there might be a layer occluding the image and the link in the image won’t work. On the other hand, the link in the caption will surely work on all kind of sites.

Pre-sale Questions: Love your plugin that show in your demo~! 1.Is the plugins allow to show everywhere in the wordpress site? 2.Is there a setting that control which page or post are using the different the background?

THanks.

Continue feedback for the plugin, is it possible to disable in mobile view? Quite mess in the iPhone view when my theme are using Allgrounds.

Elliot

Hi, it was night time in my area, so that’s why I haven’t replied in 8 hours. Second, the support as noted in the product details page is managed through the support forums. Start a thread, leave the links above (when they’re out of maintenance mode, which I’m currently seeing), and I’ll check the BuddyPress page and provide a CSS if it’s needed.

Default-user

Sorry for the disturb. Definitely I will proceed to the support forum. Thank you for the fast response!!

Hello

Does youtube video background work on iPhone, iPad or other mobiles ?

Elliot

Hi, as explained in the product details, mobile devices don’t allow video auto play. Allground users have reported me they workaround this by using an animated gif.

Hi—Purchased the plugin and entered my purchase code for the support forum, but am getting an error message “enter valid license code” on the WP login screen when I try to register. Copied & pasted it directly from the license doc. Suggestions?

Elliot

Hi can you contact me through this form? http://codecanyon.net/user/Elliot#from and include the license code so I can verify it. Not sure what’s happening since registration was working normally until weekend. Cheers.

can you upload more than one background per page? And can you upload a different background to the left and right sides of the page with this plugin?

Elliot

Hi, Allground allows only one background per page, which is used for the entire page.

Hi—pre-purchase question: Do you know if this plugin will be compatible with the Divi and Canvas themes? When I install the bg plugin, I want it to show through the header and footer areas as well on the home page, similar to how it works on this site: http://awakemedia.com Do you know if I can achieve that with this plugin?

Thanks, L

Default-user

The installation failed. Here is the message I got:

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /nfs/c07/h04/mnt/109523/domains/viewpoint.awake.net/html/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-upgrader.php on line 688

Default-user

Forgot to mention—that is on the Divi theme.

Elliot

Hi, first, please post your questions in the support forum, I gave you the link in a previous response. You’ll have to register for it. Second, that error has nothing to do with the plugin, see the file, class-wp-upgrader.php. Cheers.

Hello!. Is it possible to set background for archive page?

Default-user

It is category page, but is it possible to set it for archive page and search page? I have two custom post types – events and friends and they both needs a different background. So is it possible to set background for event archive page and friends archive page?

Elliot

Ah you mean a custom post type archive, it’s not currently possible to do that. I think it’s a good suggestion, so I’ll add it in an update to the plugin and will look into adding support for search pages too, with and without results.

Default-user

Great! I will wait for that update! Also would be great to have option to choose between image or just plain color, and some additional background options (fixed, scroll, position, repeat, no-repeat )

it seems that the video loads (black box) in the top right corner for 2 seconds before playing…is there a way to fix this?

Elliot

Hi, in Firefox? yes, it’s a easily solvable issue. Please start a thread in the support forum for Allground http://themesrobot.com/forums/allground and include a link to your site so I can check it and provide you a CSS for you to paste in the plugin settings page.

Default-user

well the problem i that its on a dev site so i cannot share but maybe you can send any way

I need to know if Allground can specify WooCommerce categories? Also, when I specify a category I need all the product pages in that category to use the same image in the background as the one specified for the category archive. Is this possible?

I see the question above but I’m not sure I understand completely.

Thanks

Elliot

Hi, while you can specify a background for each WooCommerce category, you would also have to set that background for each product in that category.

Can you make this plugin work with Ken Burns effect? I really need it! Thanks.

Elliot

Hi, due to the complexity that a customization like that would involve, it’s beyond the scope of support. Please post your question in the support forum for Allground http://themesrobot.com/forums/allground Cheers!
