Description

KNOWN FLASHING ISSUE: I've had many reports of the screen flashing white or black (depending on if you're on nightmode or not). This is due to Anki reloading the images when you click "deck" and is not something I can fix. The best solution is to use a smaller file size image for the background so that it loads faster and the flash is less noticeable. KNOWN FONT COLOR ISSUE: Many people have struggled with white or black font. The best trick to fix this is to switch anki to night mode or normal mode.This add-on pairs very well with our new ReColor add-on!HUGE thank you to u/ijgnord for helping me learn bits of python and helping make this add-on. Also thanks to u/dollajas for the original idea. (NOTE: This can only be used on Anki 2.1.22+ which was released a day prior to this add-on)If you like this add-on, please give it a like :)Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (3)There is a link in the AnKing menu for the folders to put your own images or css in. I recommend making them 20-50% transparent (you will need to use photoshop or another photo editing software). To configure the background, go to the configIf you want to edit the main anki css (change colors, etc), you can change the files in the "sources" folder, but they will overwrite when updating the add-on. Any css added to the files in the user_files folder will remain after updating.If you choose to style the toolbars, the top toolbar will remained styled during review. If you'd prefer to hide this, I would recommend checking out this No Distractions add-on.This Dancing Baloney add-on can also be used to customize the background, although in a different way.Background images were obtained from Pexels.comGear icons were obtained from Wikimedia CommonsProblems, Bugs, Errors, ImprovementsIf you find a serious bug, please submit it on Github or email us at ankingmed@gmail.com.

Not working on version 2.1.54 on windows 11 with Qt6 and Qt5. The image is cropped and it's low quality.

Are you using Qt5 or Qt6? We've tested it on Qt5 and it's working and hope to update it soon. Sharing feedback like this here doesn't notify me and I can't troubleshoot it with you. If you actually want it fixed, please remove or change this rating and submit the feedback on Github where I'd be happy to look into how we can fix this asap!

I really like the background, but I have a question. How do you get the stats on the decks page, like you showed in your examples?

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (21) on 1659858277

Inferior to Dance Baloney in every way. Less stable, less options, more clunky. Shames Baloney is no longer supported, because even with no alternatives, I refuse to use this pos.

Great add-on

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (23) on 1657647504

The colors of the deck text cant change. The CSS files are empty.

Comment from author

If you go in the files to the "sources" folder you can edit the main ones. The empty css files are for you to put your own css in

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (26) on 1654702026

Very cool! I love it!
One question, does the random option changes photos automatically every while?

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (27) on 1654559002

I really like this addon, makes it fun while studying. However, it created a new button on my menu bar called "anking" and has the addon listed under that instead of the tools button. I'm on version 2.1.53. Is there something I need to do to change this?

Comment from author

That was intentional. We are listing all our add-ons under the AnKing menu to make it easier to find which ones are ours and reach out to us if there are problems. Is that the only reason you down voted this? Feel free to email me with concerns

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (28) on 1654288979

Thanks you very much from Peru!!! :)

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (29) on 1654077814

Works good and makes Anki look mighty fresh

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (30) on 1653672679

It kills performance. I am on the latest official build. Still, it makes Anki unresponsive and slow on Win11 64bit. Uninstalling this add-on solved most of my performance issues.

Yes, it is nice, I love its functionality, but good enough performance is a lot more important. It made Anki unusable for me. :(

Comment from author before post was edited

I'm sorry to hear that! I'm not quite sure what to do to speed this up. Did you try using lower resolution images?

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (31) on 1651008483

It is bloated with social media links. It even adds them to your Deck screen in the Settings bar.

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (34) on 1649194054

love it but every update re adds the stock images to the folder even if you remove them, so i disabled updates

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (35) on 1647909154

the flashing issue is too distracting and choosing a smaller background photo as recommended by the developer as a solution didn't work , without mentioning that unchanged Icons

Comment from author

Unfortunately this is not something that I can change. I would recommend making the opacity a bit lower and changing to night mode as this makes it a tad better.

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (47) on 1642387001

nice

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (48) on 1642254858

It really upgrades your experience on Anki.

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (49) on 1641822076

Works as expected, the only problem right now is glitching picture.

The picture glitches and reloads once in a while. This does not cause me any inconvenience or trouble. But I wish that it goes away.

Comment from author

I think this is just Anki reloading the background. Using smaller file sizes will help with this

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (50) on 1639949970

Hey there, thank you for your addon but is there also an option to adjust the text's font-color of the browser which opens if you click on a deck. I am talking about the menu which opens when you click on a deck (the one which has the "study now" button). I tried all .css data and adjusted everything but this browser remains unchanged.

Without the addon, if Anki wanted show that it wants to sync, the "sync" button changed color. Since I have dark background pictures I had to change the toolbar's text color to white (via the .css data). Unfortunately, now the text is always white and I am therefor dont get the information again. Is there a way (e.g. a command line) to still have it change the color if it wants to sync?

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (51) on 1639624672

Love this. Pretty good add-on.

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (52) on 1637984355

Great add-on!

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (53) on 1637688102

it's alright but still not perfect cause the graphic of the pictures are not too good and there are some boring backgrounds

Comment from author

I saw your comment on github and we found the program. You are on Anki 2.1.9. This add-on can be only be downloaded for 2.1.22+.

Love it! Finally a prettier Anki <3

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (55) on 1636730785

good one

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (56) on 1634063738

I can change the background and buttons easily, but when I open the CSS in windows notepad no code shows up for me to edit.

Then again I'm not the most technically savvy when it comes to code, so maybe I'm doing something wrong? When I watch the tutorials on YouTube and people open the CSS with text editor on their apple/mac computer the code is already there for them to edit, so I figured I would see something similar on windows but there's no code showing at all.

Comment from author

Shoot me an email and I'll help solve your problem so you can turn this to a like :) ankingmed@gmail.com (Unfortunately I updated the add-on after I made the video, but it's a simple fix)

Hi! I seem to have a problem with mine, where there image is centered but it doesn't fill up the whole Anki screen, leaving white bars around it. This stays even if I try out different photos or make Anki full screen/not full screen. Any advice?

Comment from author

I'd be happy to help you with this if you want to report it to me (via email or Github). If you just want to leave a dislike on that add-on, use this. If you want the add-on to get fixed so you can use it properly, doing this sends me no notifications and I have no way of messaging you back to troubleshoot. I'm very available and happy to fix problems as they come up

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (68) on 1628979496

It does not work in the newest version of Anki. It gets installed successfully but it does not appear in the toolbar section to change the background.

Comment from author

It definitely does work on the newest version of Anki. The toolbar settings are under the AnKing menu now. If you have another problem, feel free to email me at ankingmed@gmail.com and I'll get it working.

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (69) on 1628683386

I like how easy it is to control everything within this add-on :D
But I have a question, the demo pictures you show here have very nice text colors and everything is clear, could you please attach the css code somewhere so we can achieve the nice look you have in the pictures? I would appreciate it.

Comment from author

I didn't actually modify anything in those pictures, that's just what it looks like on my high res monitor.

dont want to dislike it because i love the extension but i got a new pc downloaded anki etc and its not working anymore :( i can change the gear icon but when i choose an image to be the background nothing happens it just stays black

Comment from author

hmm.. this is weird. Can you submit a github issue with as many details as possible so I can look into it?

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (76) on 1627800199

I don't really know why it doesn't work on my anki app. I can set my background but css style can't.

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (77) on 1627772059

Didn't wanted to dislike but Im getting the following message:

"One or more errors occurred:

Anyway I can fix this?

Comment from author

This should be fixed now. If not email me and I’ll look into it! Thanks for not disliking :)

thank u it works perfectly

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (79) on 1627599912

Doesn't work with newest Anki update?

Comment from author

This should definitely work with the newest Anki update. Rather than putting a downvote on here, can you please email me details or post an issue on Github? I'm happy to look into it.

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (80) on 1627387732

Great addon. Though I hope there will be a feature that could blur the background at the top and bottom to make the cropped part a little more appealing.

Comment from author

I wish there was a way to do that as well. It's impossible to line them all up because the top, the main part and the bottom essentially function as 3 separate webpages and since everyone resizes anki to different sizes, this was the best solution I could come up with.

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (81) on 1627227771

It works perfectly now. Awesome add-on! Keep it up

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (82) on 1627222339

Awesome addon!

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (83) on 1627156682

If you are using Anki 2.1.40 and the add-on stopped working, there is a simple way to fix it:

On Anki, go to:

Tools --> Add-ons. Select the add-on and press "View Files"

Now open the file "meta.json" with a text editor and change "max_point_version": -38 to "max_point_version": -40.

Save the file and restart Anki, the add-on will work now.

-----

PS: To open the file "meta.json" on Windows use, for example, the app NotePad. On macOS you don't need additional software.

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (84) on 1627064565

Comment from author

Can you please give me a bit more information as to what isn't working? Happy to look into it. A negative review on here (especially without any details) doesn't do anything to help me get it working. You can submit an issue on GitHub or email me at ankingmed@gmail.com and I'll try and look into it so you can turn this into a like :)

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (87) on 1625742521

Works as expected! 😋

It works just as in the description. One small annoyance I had with it was the additional useless menu category of options it added. I just commented the lines from the code and now my Menu bar is clutter-free.

It makes the quality of life when AnKing way better!

Edit 2021-06-02: Absolutely loved the recent changes where you can change the opacity of the main and review images separately.
The first day I graduate and get a job, I'll be supporting your work as a way to express my gratitude!

Comment from author before post was edited

Unfortunately it will always show in the reviewer because the top bar is always the top bar by Anki's settings and doesn't change for the review screen. I'd recommend using the No Distractions add-on if its annoying. Thanks for the feedback though!

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (98) on 1622572204

Amazing!

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (99) on 1622480872

This works great!

Suggestion: Idk if this is possible, or if it'd make peoples Anki lag a bit, but it would be cool if there was a feature within this to download images from an RSS feed. That way, you could download the daily NASA wallpaper or something like that.

Can you please give a guide on editing the CSS files (mine are empty).
To be precise, I want to change the colour of the horizontal lines that separate decks on the deck browser from Black to White (or maybe grey).

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (102) on 1622120872

Feels great not staring at a grey screen when you use the app about an hour every day :)

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (103) on 1621709249

For some reason when I downloaded the add-on the color of all fonts stayed black so I can't read anything and couldn't figure out how to make it white

Shoot me an email at ankingmed@gmail.com and we can get this resolved so you can turn this into a like :) Try switching to nightmode or off of nightmode and that should fix your issue

Works great! I only use it for my main screen however, as it can glitch a bit in reviews (half the screen goes black and covers up the card)

Very nice, however, is there a way for me to cycle through my own custom background images, or do I only get to stick to 1 image if I use my own one

Edit: nevermind i found out it changes every time you open the app not when the app is open

Hi looks/works great, but when I use in night mode when I go to study a deck the portion where the question is shown is grey & the question is written out in white making it hard to see, do you know how to fix this?

does exactly what it says it does. although when I collapse or expand a deck, the background goes away briefly and returns

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (145) on 1609608846

01/01/2020 Firstly, the dislike was chosen only due to lack of better option. I am trying to use a image of my own. However, it is not working. The format is PNG by the way. Is there any requirement in regards to the image features?

02/01/2020I fixed it. The transparency needs to be on point for Anki to be able to use the image as a background. I changed the dislike for a like. Thanks a lot. Your support was very prompt. Great Job, AnKing.

Comment from author before post was edited

You should be able to use a PNG or JPEG or GIF. Are you configuring it properly? Have you seen this video that goes over it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XAq0KpU3Jc&feature=youtu.be

The best method, in your case, would be to submit an issue on github or email me at ankingmed@gmail.com and I can try to help you.

I'm more than happy to assist and would appreciate if you change this to a like.

I get the following error when I try to add it:
"One or more errors occurred:

Thank you so much, apologies for disliking. Also I really appreciate the work you guys do on here and with the anking decks <3

It flashes white whenever I click onto a deck. I'm not sure how to fix this as I'm new to Anki. When I switched to night mode it flashes black. Really unfortunate since this looks amazing.

Edit: Made the image file size smaller but there is still a white flash which is an eye-strain. It's slightly better than what it was before though. I'll just try to deal with it

Comment from author before post was edited

This is due to Anki reloading the page and is an issue with Anki, not the add-on. If you try to use a smaller file size image as the background, it should decrease that. Feel free to email me at ankingmed@gmail.com and I'd be happy to troubleshoot it with you and then you can turn this dislike into a like :)

I don't know why but the pictures are blurred and for some reason a white screen appears when i click on something... It's really frustrating because it's a great add on but it doesn't work for me :(

Comment from author before post was edited

I'd be happy to troubleshoot this for you if you wanna switch the dislike to a like :) The white screen issue has been determined to be due to having really large file size images (which the default are). Unfortunately using a lower file size image usually means decreased quality. Feel free to shoot me an email at ankingmed@gmail.com and mention this discussion

A great add-on, but I'm also having a white-flash whenever I click on a deck. Did anybody ever find a fix to this issue?

Comment from author

You need to use smaller file size images for the background and that will resolve it.

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (158) on 1604536876

Add-on looks good, and changing the background works.

But for some reason, I can't change the gear icon (it's still the same default gear icon even after restarting Anki).

Check the config for background-size. You can set it to "cover" instead of "contain"

great add-on, however, I found the addition of the background image to the review cards annoying as I already had a bunch of customized card styles that worked well on desktop + mobile.

If anyone wants to disable the background during reviews, set "Reviewer image": false. Thanks for the add-on!

Works great but I do have a question
If I don't want the background to show on the review cards, I set it to false. However, it still shows the top and bottom bars as the background image. Is there any way to fix this?

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (218) on 1587328014

That little extra that keeps me going! Thank you so much

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (219) on 1587281962

Fantastic add on, took a little playing with to figure out what each setting really did. Lastly I liked how before this most recent update the toolbar image was only the top in the reviewer. Im sure a lot of people probably wanted both, but could there maybe be a setting to turn top or bottom toolbar on seperately for both main overview screens and then reviewer, so basically toolbars would be 4 settings rather than just 1.

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (220) on 1587227408

Love this add-on!! The ability to now have the image displayed in the reviewer as well as in both toolbars makes it even better!

Amazing add-on. Only problem is I can't get the image to follow onto review cards as well, even after your 3/21/20 update. Any tips? Tried messing with my card templates but this hasn't worked either.

Comment from author

The version with images in the reviewer is currently a beta on my patreon. Once I get time to finish cleaning it up and testing it I'll release it on here :)

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (227) on 1585599967

Love it and thank you! Any idea why the image isn't taking up the whole screen though? I'd say about 80% is covered by the pic and then the rest is just the normal anki background.

EDIT: Went to your youtube video (awesome video btw) and figured it out. Thank you kindly!

Custom Background Image and Gear Icon (228) on 1585569675

I can't change the gear icon. The rest is working perfectly.
