WP 500px jsGallery

Description

This is plugin lets you add your 500px.com gallery to a page in your blog using the [jsg500px] shortcode.
The gallery is made with galleriffic and the images are retrieved from 500px.com using the user feed.

It’s possible also to define a custom CSS in your template folder to customize completely the gallery.

See the plugin in action here: http://micz.it/fotografia/500px/

Using a custom CSS file

You can customize the look of the gallery using a custom CSS file.
The file must be named wp-500px-jsgallery.css and copied in your theme root folder, the same where is stored the theme style.css file.
This custom file will be loaded after the standard plugin css file, so you can modify only the elements you need, the other elements will be displayed as usual.
You can check the standard wp-500px-jsgallery.css to see which css elements the gallery is composed of.
If you check the “Exclusive custom CSS” option in the plugin settings page, will be loaded only your custom CSS file and not the plugin default one.

If you need to modify only the thumbnails or image dimensions, you could do this via a custom css or using the dedicated options in the plugin settings page.

To optimize your website loading times, with the “Gallery page” option you can also specify all the ids or permalinks pages on which the needed scripts must be loaded.

The photos displayed are only the latest ones, as published in the user feed by 500px.com.
