Getting Started

Advanced WordPress Backgrounds is a plugin for WordPress that allows adding impressive backgrounds to your blocks. Using this plugin, you can set a color, video, or image as a background. It also allows adding a parallax effect to background images and videos. These backgrounds can be viewed on mobile devices too. The plugin allows to adjust settings to set whether parallax effects or videos will be seen on mobile devices and in certain browsers.
