Technical Details

The plugin is optimized to not affect your page's load time because it requires no extra style sheets or javascript files to be loaded. The only exception is the popular jQuery framework if you choose to have a fading background or slideshow-like image changing, but chances are you are already using jQuery and the user already has this saved in their cache.

When the fade-in option is enabled the background will not appear until the image is fully loaded in browser to improve the effect appearance. If you want to have the background to load sooner there are instruction on this plugin's homepage on how to set that up manually.

The developer mode allows you to have a randomly changing div, span, etc on any element. Simply provide the class or id name and it will add the background-image for you. There is also an optional function to insert the random image into the html anywhere on the page.

When changing background image every visitor session, a temporary cookie is made so that the chosen background image remains the same for the entire visit of the user on your site. The next time they visit your site, and once the browser cookie has expired, a new image will be randomly chosen. This is usually every 6 hours, but may vary due to various reasons.

Install :

1. Install and activate through your WordPress' Admin plugins page.
2. Go to WordPress Admin->Appearance->Better Backgrounds
3. Do what the page says to do.

Kabam! You've got better backgrounds.
