500px, pronounced as five hundred pixels is a popular online photography community which is aimed at aspiring and professional photographers and encouraging members to upload their best work to gain gain exposure, find inspiration and connect. The webservice currently has over 2.5 million registered and over 10 million monthly active users. In this tutorial we’ll explain you how you can add your 500px photo gallery in your WordPress based website.
To start, first install and activate WP 500px jsGallery plugin. Upon activation visit your admin area Dashboard -> Settings -> WP 500px jsGallery page and add your 500px username then save the changes.
After adding username use the [jsg500px] shortcode in the page etc wherever you like showing the 500px gallery on. Optionally you can use the “user500px” shortcode parameter to set a different username for a single page. See it in action here.
The plugin provides you some customization options on its admin page like you can set Thumbnails Dimensions, Number of Thumbnails per page, Photo Dimensions, and Exclusive Custom CSS etc.
