Snippets by IsItWP

Do you want to alter the default background behavior? This snippet will let you customize any background parameter you want, as well as the element on which it’s applied.

Instructions

All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:

// Activate custom background and set callback function
if ( function_exists( 'add_theme_support' ) ) {
    $defaults = array(
        'default-color' => '000000',
        'default-image' => get_template_directory_uri() . '/img/background.png',
        'wp-head-callback' => 'my_theme_background_cb',
        'admin-head-callback'    => '',
        'admin-preview-callback' => ''
    );
    add_theme_support( 'custom-background', $defaults );
}
// Callback function to alter custom background behavior
function my_theme_background_cb() {
    $background = get_background_image();
    $color = get_background_color();
 
    if ( ! $background && ! $color )
        return;
 
    $style = $color ? "background-color: #$color;" : '';
 
    if ( $background ) {
        $image = " background-image: url('$background');";
 
        $repeat = get_theme_mod( 'background_repeat', 'repeat' );
        if ( ! in_array( $repeat, array( 'no-repeat', 'repeat-x', 'repeat-y', 'repeat' ) ) )
                $repeat = 'repeat';
        $repeat = " background-repeat: $repeat;";
 
        $position = get_theme_mod( 'background_position_x', 'left' );
        if ( ! in_array( $position, array( 'center', 'right', 'left' ) ) )
                $position = 'left';
        $position = " background-position: top $position;";
 
        $attachment = get_theme_mod( 'background_attachment', 'scroll' );
        if ( ! in_array( $attachment, array( 'fixed', 'scroll' ) ) )
                $attachment = 'scroll';
        $attachment = " background-attachment: $attachment;";
 
        $style .= $image . $repeat . $position . $attachment;
    }
?>
    <!-- You can set any class or id target here -->
    <style type="text/css" id="custom-background-css">;
        .main { <?php echo trim( $style ); ?> }
    </style>
<?php }
