Hi Elliot.

Thanks again for resolving the Chrome issue.

Have another question for you. I’m installing an audio player on a page with a full screen video and I’m finding that the video background doesn’t load very quickly. Wonder if the player is taking precedence over it and if there’s anything I can do to get the audio player and background launching simultaneously, and syncing better.

Can you see here: http://www.songsatsea.com/paradise/

Again, appreciate any help.

Mark.

Elliot

Hi Mark, please stick to the forum. You know I replied there the first time you posted and faster than here. Can you start a thread there? And please let me know which plugin you’re using for the audio player. Depending on how the player starts, I might have a solution to trigger it only when the background loads.

Apologies, Elliot. Will do.

The fade is not working on the frontpage unless the page is refreshed. http://officialdame.com/

this plugin for pagelines is smooth: http://dame.yoyo.io/ The video need some cleanup on the initialization: http://officialdame.com/holymoly/ This plugin here by pagelines is also smoother. It adds a fade to the video so the start doesn’t show the loader for the video etc: http://dame.yoyo.io/holymoly/

The plug is very functional, but need s some finishing touches for polish

Hi, you don’t have the “Purchased” badge that you would have if you have bought thus plugin. Perhaps you’re talking about another plugin.

I’m working for a client that has your plug in there site and I’m attempting to dedug

Elliot

Ask you client, who I assume is the one that bought the plugin, to introduce you sending me a message using this contact form http://codecanyon.net/user/Elliot#from and adding your email address in the mail body. Otherwise, I have no way to validate the purchase.

Please , it’s possible to have all background clickable???? Thank you for your anwser.

Elliot

Hi, it’s possible with further customization. The images mode has a linked button (the image caption), but I haven’t implemented a full clickable background because some themes might have layers on top of the background and would make impossible to make the background clickable. The button approach is safe and will work on all sites regardless of any layers they might have on top of the background.

Does the Fullscreen Backgrounds for WordPress work with the Genesis Framework?

Thanks, John

Elliot

Hi John, yes, Allground works fine with Genesis framework.

Hi, apologies if asked already – can I just have one static background image in my body/page without link

Thanks for your time

D

Elliot

Hi, yes, you can add only one image without adding a link.

Perfect – thanks Elliot!

Elliot – one more (hopefully) question. Could this be added to a wrapper? I’m using Ultimatum theme and need to get a slider into the head of my site with nav and logo etc floating over. See for example: http://grainandmortar.com/ but in video format

Many thanks

Elliot

Yes, it’s possible to assign it to a div, although it requires some code to do, but there’s already a thread in the support forum covering it.

graffig

perfect Elliot – will dig into support forum – once again thanks for getting back to me so quickly

graffig

sorry to hassle you Elliot, lost password for support forum tried resetting but getting no return address to visit to reset – any idea?

Elliot

Hi, you don’t have the “Purchased” badge for this? contact me through the form on the right of this page so I can see if you purchased it http://codecanyon.net/user/Elliot#from

Actually, my previous purchases are for: Product Slider Carousel for WooCommerce and alldion-responsive-accordion-for-wordpress. I thought those licenses would let me into the forum to view the the post on adding to header

Hi, we’re using this one for the 5th site in a row now.. we’re very happy with it..

I do have a few small feature requests though.. 1. I would like to have a random option on the slideshows.. 2. I would like to be able to disable the autoplay

(these two combined would result in a nice random static background :) )

Elliot

Hi, it’s an interesting idea. I’ve an updated for Allground scheduled for next week (a new feature will be a pattern overlay control for image background) and I’ll add this one too. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hi Elliot, in a previous thread you explained how its possible to randomize the background picture order. Do you plan to upgrade the plugin in a way that its not possible the system shows two same pics in a row ?

Elliot

Hi, that would involve more checkings and operations (save cookie with image shown, and next time check cookie to see if it’s the image being attempted to display and if so fetch another) and would make the page loading a bit slower so I was thinking about a pure random or even a sequence load (it would involve a cookie but no extra checkings and fetching a new image). Anyway, just thinking loud, it’s not even done yet. It’s easy for me to do it any way, but I think about what’s best for page loading.

As a general rule, buy a plugin for its current features and what you see in demo not because of a promise because we humans like to imagine our ideal things (similar to reading a book and then watching a movie, or that girl that seems so dreamy but it’s quite common when you start dating her) and perhaps once it’s implemented it won’t be the ideal thing you’ve imagined.

Best!

matmushroom

Hehe, I already purchased the plugin :-) Just make the random generated image selection optional, then the admin can decide if he wants slower loading times or not.

with google maps as background is it possible to add a custom marker/pin icon?

like this website: http://www.akaru.fr/en/contact/
Elliot

Hi, it’s not currently possible to add a complex marker like that.

Default-user

What about just a custom marker that is a simple png logo?

Elliot

Hi, yes, adding a PNG image marker (even with transparency) is possible. This feature doesn’t have a visual control right now but it’s implemented. Contact me through the support forum http://themesrobot.com/forums/allground and I’ll provide you the code, which is actually very short, to make Google Maps load your custom marker image.

Default-user

is it possible to interact with the google maps background?

example: http://sickdesigner.com/demo/fun-with-google-maps/fun-with-google-maps2.html
Elliot

The plugin triggers a Javascript event that exposes the map object used in the page, you can use this to manipulate the map in any way you want. The documentation describes how to obtain this JS object to interact with it. Please note that I won’t be providing extra code to create the interaction you might want, that’s beyond the scope of support.

Default-user

last question, can the background be a clickable link? I’d like to be able to click anywhere on the page to launch a youtube video in a shadowbox.

Elliot

Hi, the full background is not clickable because in some themes there might be layers on top of it (nothing strange, just content or layout layers) overlaid on top and thus nulling this functionality. To make sure I advertise a perfectly working product, the caption is clickable, as you can see in the demo, and this is perfectly safe. However, the full background can be made clickable with a js code and in this case I can provide you with it.

Default-user

I purchased the plugin, but I don’t have a license code for the support page. However, I need to have my home page background images link to a youtube video in a shadowbox. And I need my contact page to have a stylized google maps with a custom PNG marker.

You mentioned you would give me the proper code for this?

Elliot

Hi, there’s a link in the registration page labeled “Click to view where to find it.” explaining where to obtain the license code http://themesrobot.com/registration/

Default-user

Ok thanks! I just submitted two questions I have, hope to hear soon.

Default-user

can’t seem t find the JS code to make the full background clickable.

Elliot

Hi, just replied you in the forums. When you post there, I’ll reply you there, you don’t need to post anything else here.

would this plugin work w/ other themes?? Thanks!

Elliot

Hi Sarah, of course. And if you need to tweak something in your theme so the background shows better (for example if you have an opaque background occluding it) I’ll help you in the Allground support forum http://themesrobot.com/forum/allground/

Default-user

Elliot

Hi, I’m exceptionally replying here since the support servers are down: I don’t see a YouTube background in the site posted but a self hosted video background and it’s looping correctly. Perhaps you changed it?
