Easily create full screen image backgrounds and fading slideshows that stretch and adapt to the size of your page.
You can either use it as a global "cover" style background that will be displayed on all pages and posts of your WordPress website or you can give individual posts or pages including custom post types their own specific background – great for giving parts of a website a whole different look.
Jellyfish Backdrop makes fullscreen background slideshows easy by allowing you to assign multiple backgrounds to any page or post.
- Unlimited number of post and slideshows.
- Create different slideshows or backgrounds or different areas of your site.
- Easy to use admin panels with sortable images and media library integration.
- Display images in any page element allowing slideshows anywhere, not just as a background!

Easily set up images and slideshows using the new admin panel on post and page edit screens.
Settings page, to set up default options.
Why does the slideshow appear under my page content?
This is what it’s primarily intended to do, how this appears on your site
depends on the theme you are using. It works best on theme pages with large
areas of little content.
Can I use this as a normal slideshow?
Yes, create a div element or other suitable container on your page and configure
your slideshow to use the element’s id or class. Make sure you’ve styled the
element to give it a suitable size.
Can I have a default slideshow that shows on every page?
No, slideshows must be defined on an individual post or page basis.
