Hi Dmitiry,

I've been a fond user of Myatu's WP Background Manager plugin but it's no longer maintained and giving serious loading issues. I've been looking for days now to find a replacement that has random display of background images and lazy loading (to prevent Google load time penalties). I have not found a up-to-date plugin, all are either not maintained anymore or lack the aforementioned requirements.
Since I've been a user of your great RoyalSlider for a Flickr slider on my website I started wondering if RoyalSlider is able to function as a background images slider? I couldn't find anything in the knowledge base.

Would you know if this is achievable?
My website is it's running on Divi.

Thanks, Jan

    I forgot to mention that it needs to show the images full window.

    You can embed slider anywhere via shortcode, PHP or widget.

    To stretch it to 100% width/height of the window, you'll need some coding knowledge, as implementation depends on a structure of your theme.

    Also, in Misc section of slider options disable slider drag and slider touch navigation features, so they do not interfere with browser scroll.
