Wallpaper feature requests

2 discussion posts
I'd like to be able to create a slide show from an unlisted website source. It seems this would be easy enough to write if there is an API to extend the source list. Is this possible?

Also, I have a six monitor set up (4k split in 4 and 2 2K). It would be nice to be able to copy wallpaper settings from one virtual monitor to another rather than having to set each one separately. This would allow random images from a single source to appear on each virtual monitor (different images from same source).

There isn't currently an API to code your own wallpaper plugins, no. Is it a public site that has an API? If so, we can add it to our request list for wallpaper providers.

Regarding copying the wallpaper settings, you can actually do this. If you right-click the monitor/split in the wallpaper window, there's a "Copy settings from" entry in that menu

Hope that helps!

Thank you for the info about copying settings, that does help!

As for the API, I found several sights that had images I wanted to use but didn't look to see if they had an API. I didn't realize that was how you pulled the images. I thought you just used an html parser or something (regex matching, etc). Also I'd like to set something up to down-select from an internal server. Anyway, since the server is on a Linux box I can work around the issue by just creating a directory and populating it with symbolic links to the files I'd like to use and then use the "My Images" source. Similarly I can write a script to periodically pull images from any sites I like and do the same. It's just a little hacky and I thought it might be nice if there was an API in display fusion. Thanks anyway

BTW The program is quite nice. Having the display splitting on the large monitor has improved my productivity quite nicely. Well worth the purchase!
