    Hi there, love your flashlight theme and am fooling around with it just now.

    Two things I bump into:

    1) when setting the default background image, how can I choose from existing pictures in my library. Not by uploading every picture again I hope?

    2) somewhat the same issue: if I want to show just one pic in the background on a post, with the mini content area, how can I select an existing picture. I’ve tried to upload it again as a gallery with one pic. That works sometimes, but not every time. I also tried the WP-background image plugin, but that one gets overruled by the standard background image.

    Hope you can help


    1) Having the exact same problem! Uploading images from the theme options only gives me one option; from computer. Doesn’t seem to know that the library exist. Also, when uploading from computer it still wont show online, but it shows in the library. Impossible for me to manage background gallery grom the general settings. Must upload from within the page itself, and the they will only apply for that page.

    Waited almost five days for a reply.



    Flashlight uses a standard uploader for background/gallery images and doesn’t support the media libary. An user requested this feature in the past and I reported it to Kriesi however he didn’t implement it yet. I’m not sure if he’ll include a media gallery uploader. You can embed images in the content area though by using the media gallery button on the top left near the text editor. If you’d like to use WP-Backgrounds Lite add following code to css/custom.css:

    html, body {
    background-color: transparent;
