By default, Genesis doesn’t turn on WordPress Custom Backgrounds. Genesis Custom Backgrounds enables custom backgrounds and creates an option to enable selection of a default background from the sets of backgrounds provided by StudioPress. Currently, it is broken down to Dark and Light backgrounds with subfolders. You can easily provide the user more options by simply uploading more backgrounds with in either the light or dark folders. Upload using the following structure, folder: camo & files: camo-1.png, camo-2.png, and camo-3.png (in all lowercase). Furthermore, you can also upload a custom background via the WordPress Custom Background via Appearance > Background. You can easily add customization ability for the site to easily switch default backgrounds or upload their own (which will always overwrite the default).
This is the perfect plugin for web site developers who want to set a default background but allow their clients to easily change the background using the builtin WordPress Custom Backgrounds functionality. So even if you remove access to Genesis Theme Options, the client can change the background at their leisure.
- Upload the entire genesis-custom-backgrounds folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
