WordPress-Plugin: Cosimo

  • Description

    Another wordpress plugin of mine is released now.
    Cosimo is the acronym for „Change Of Scene Image Many Often“. Static background images are boring very quickly. Cosimo wants to avoid this. A string in the glob-style format, for example, *69*Summer, Spring?-Break*, etc. can also select images from the media library. Users of NextGEN gallery optionally can prepare a gallery of wallpapers and use them on Cosimo settings.  The change interval may following a number of page views or time (minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years done). The background image is used on the site about inline CSS, as in this example:

    body {background-image:url(http://…/wp-content/uploads/superduper-bg.jpg) !important;}

  • Requirements

    • Images from WordPress standard Media Library
    • optionally: NextGEN image gallery.
      In this case you can use all the benefits of NextGEN for preparing cosimos image list.
  • Features

    Insert a CSS style tag into the <head> section which overload the default background image selector

  • Installation

    1.) Upload the folder cosimo to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
    2.) Activate the plugin through the ‚Plugins‘ menu in WordPress
    3.) Configure the plugin settings
    4.) Prepare sets of background images

  • @TODO:

    New ideas come endless. For Cosimo features I have the following plans:
    Sorting images from media library is not possibleat the moment. For the next version is planned to sort the matching images. Now I work on the realization. Another idea is an option to start with a selected image at a given time. A request example can be that a website should change the scene at all times of the day.
