Free wallpaper script is php script to create wallpaper sites. It is simple in use and serves to list and share wallpapers. Wallpaper script allows to list wallpapers by category, tag in 4 different orders. You can order wallpapers by date, download count, downloads in last 7 days, rating.

Each wallpaper has indicator bars to display total download ratio, download ratio in last 7 days and positive or negative rating. Everyone can rate any wallpaper up or down allowing site visitors to demonstrate what wallpapers they like and which ones they don’t. It gives idea about what people like.

Free Wallpaper Script automatically resizes wallpaper on upload to thumbnails. On download request site will display available standard wallpaper sizes according to originally uploaded wallpaper and resize it to chosen download size.

Looking for reliable web host for your wallpaper site I recommend using Bluehost. They allow to host unlimited number of domains and sites. Bluehost is good for trying several websites to build and grow those that get a traction. I used them before and was very happy with their features and customer service. Many bloggers use it to host wordpress blogs. As my web site grew I moved to dedicated server.
