Background Control


A simple and powerful plugin to control your WordPress site’s background. The plugin changes background color/image of the tag. The plugin comes with a butil-in image uploading script.
So your background images live inside the plugin and you don’t have to use WordPress “media handler”.


  • Image uploading
  • Archive with unlimited images
  • Url/link background image
  • Full CSS-control (repeat, fixed, positioning)
  • Color validation of hex-color values set to background-color.


  • Screenshot from the settings panel of Background Control.


  1. Upload background-control to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. If prompted – chmod the image directory inside background-control to allow file uploads.
