Background image slideshow in a canvas

Recommended Posts

quintinm

Hello,

 

Has anyone looked at adding multiple images in a "slidershow" of images that fade from one to another as a canvas background?

Is there a DMS plugin that will do something like that?

 

As a quick example - something like this perhaps: http://www.cssigniter.com/preview/aegean/

Here is another example - the element at the top of the page: http://grovemade.com/

 

I want to be able to overlay content OVER the slider element.

 

Thank you.

HI,

 

There is no DMS plugin that will allow you to have that kind of functionality. However, I am sure that one user has used a plugin available from the WordPress plugin repo that allows you to have multiple background images that automatically fade into each other, like an automatic slider. Unfortunately, I can not remember the name of the plugin.


Please search our forums, before posting!

Thanks Danny.

 

What a pity you cannot remember - i will try a search and see what happens.

Were those backgrounds in a canvas area of the background of the site?

 

thank you.

HI, there are actually 2 that I know of 

 

Full width slider here there is a free and pro version I have used this in DMS1 there was a conflict with another plugin but other than that it worked great. 

And the other here which I have not used because (and looks to have alot more options than the one above )you had to buy it to test it. 

 

but these are pretty much background sliders.

Aires, thanks for the info.

Can you specify the slider to be assigned to a specific canvas area or is it just the whole site background?

 

I suspect i would want to assign it to a specific canvas for what i have in mind.

 

thank you.
