I would like either those backdrops to show or the "newest items" backdrop visible when a title is selected. All of the Vanilla EHS screenshots that I see show a backdrop.
I got my backdrops to show, but I assume Vanilla has a bug in the EHS menu. I had to switch to the Maelstrom theme, navigate to the popup menu, toggle the backdrop option, then switch back to Vanilla. For some reason Vanilla is missing the backdrop toggle.
If anyone tried Vanilla 2.0 when it was released and didn't like it you should check it out again. In my opinion it has improved a lot, especially with the EHS. I also like the way it works with the music plugin.
