The background image (defined or random) can grow depending on the size of the browser with optional fading effect, be repeated, appear during specific periods or by content.
The block with the content can be customized by size, color and transparency. CSS code can be further provided.
It is totally independent of the template, it just adds code to personalize your page by the template after generation.
I use bgMax for a few sites and it is very powerfull. It can scale the backgroundimage to every browser.
Today, I have asked the developer to change the site, so download the module in every language should be possible.
He fixed it in a couple of hours. So if you use the language selector at that site, you can download without an errormessage.
Thanks fot that quick support!
BGMax is the BIZ! Install, tweak, publish... boom!
Simple back-end UI, brilliant front-end result!
Currently using it on a Shape 5 Vertex template, on which I've tried extensions with supposedly similar capabilities and got undesirable results (jQuery conflicts).
If I was gonna make a Joomla! extension, THIS is how I'd make it!
Thanks nice work
+Easy to use
+Cool Fade Effect
+Works with most fixed templates (Tested on Yootheme)
-Small selection of effects
-"Random in folder option" does not work properly
-Cannot select multiple images for a rotating background effect
I tested some others free modules as background display but I did not succeed to use them. It's probably due to my lack of technical skill. But I installed in few minutes the bgmax module and everything worked well.
I particulary enjoyed the Fade effet and the random display for each page visited.
If you follow the documentation, everything should be ok for you too.
If you are using a Gavick template with JAT3, it takes one minute to do the basic setup. And there are other many settings avalaible for a fine configuration of the use of the module.
Many thanks to the author.
Did I mention that this module is Free!
