    Why can I not have a stretched background image? It has it centered behind the content if I select the blocked method. If I put it to the right or the left it is tiled. How do I get a full background image like the preview? Can you supply documentation. Using the dark theme.

    Hey,

    css background images aren’t streched automatically but just display the image (in it’s original resolution). You can only repeat it along the x/y-axis or fix the position (when the user scrolls the image behind the text content will stay in position). Kriesi uses a very big image on the demo page (over 3100px width – that’s why it appear as fullscreen image because no “standard” user will use a screen with more than 3100px resolution).

    So you can either upload a very big image or repeat the image with css. If you really like to “stretch” images you need to use javascript/jquery to calculate the right image size based on the browser viewport. I released a plugin which can dio this: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-backgrounds-lite/

    Your plug-in and advice is incorrect. It does not allow me to adjust the resolution. Even if I load a 3200 plus px image, it gives me an automatic resolution of 1024 × 731. Regardless how big the image I load is. That is with your plug-in as well. Can I just get the coding that Kriesi uses on his demo? I do not see what the big deal is. You buy something cause it should match that of the demo. Should it not? Thank you.

    As I said above there’s no “special code” in use. He just added a big image as background. You can send me the login data to: (Email address hidden if logged out)

    The demo code is:

    html, body{
    background-image:url(http://www.kriesi.at/themes/wp-content/plugins/avia_styleswitch/images/big_bg_dark.jpg);
    background-position:top center;
    background-repeat:no-repeat;
    background-attachment:fixed;
    }
