Allground - Fullscreen Backgrounds for WordPress - CodeCanyon Item for Sale


Ad: Bluehost hosting
Allground is a WordPress plugin that allows you to create responsive fullscreen backgrounds using:
  • Images
  • YouTube videos
  • Hosted or linked videos
  • Google Maps

Note: seeing the demo within CodeCanyon might show a browser scrollbar since the site is embedded in CC’s iframe. For a real preview, click Remove Frame at the top left, or click Allground Demo


Create fullscreen backgrounds using images that you can upload to your site or link externally.

  • Use a single image or a sequence of images, each one with its caption and link.
  • Set the link to be opened in a new browser tab.
  • Drag and drop the images in the editor to adjust their order.
  • Choose whether to show controls to go back and forth through the images.
  • Set the pause length before changing images and the fading transition speed
  • Choose between 3 modes:
    • Sequence: the default and traditional mode, the images are shown in the order specified in the background editing screen.
    • Single image, random pick: a single image is picked from those loaded in the background and show with its link and caption
    • Sequence, random order: the images are shown in a randomized sequence
  • Add an image as pattern overlay


Upload an MP4 video to create a fullscreen background and add a WebM video for Opera compatibility.
