    This is unclear from the image what you are trying to do.

    Very interesting addon. Some suggestions:
    1. Allow multiple images per node so that it can fade from one background to the next.
    2. Let users turn this off.
    3. Turn off for mobile users OR load compressed image for mobile.

    Each time you have good ideas I never thought off :)

    That's a very good idea, how would see see from a node edit point of view ?
    Up to, let's say, 5 input fields to input url ?
    Or another way ?

    Totally feasible.

    Oh yes, didn't think at mobile users.
    I will see what I can do in the next release.

    5 upload fields would be cool.
    I have also considered to suggest a XFMG album, but I am not 100% sure about that. Having a front end album has the benefit that members with permission can add new media. This is great for community spirit.
    But for this to work would require image size limits. You cant have members uploading 2MB images resulting in end users loading 20MB pages.

    It's not upload fields, its url input fields.

    Size limit is already managed by XFMG, but a specific limit could be added for that.

    However, how would you handle the fact that my addon let's you add different background image for each node.

    This is a great idea, makes it easier to add custom backgrounds to specific nodes rather than coding it into EXTRA.css for each every single one

    that would work.
    One album per node. Each image in the album is shown for x seconds, before it fades to the next.
    Maybe allow a setting to define a default node image album. If a node has no album set then the default album is used.

    That makes sense, will envision this when doing the update.

    one thing i noticed that made me turn off the mod

    default bg always comes in a second before new custom bg is loaded

    i hope this is fixable somehow in the next release if there is a way around it

    This is as designed, it is done so as the background is loaded by some JS that ensures background is stretched to cover the whole page and fix.

    So on the specific node, that background Will this replace the main background that you have set for your forum?

    too bad this is done with JS.
    Can this not be done with CSS ?
  16. MtoR

    Not in order to get the fit to screen thing

    if you use transparent png files do it still show the black theme background ?
    works with xf 1.5 ?
  18. MtoR

    MtoR Well-Known Member

    Yes It works with 1.5. I'd say so, if png file is transparent.
