On June 15th, 2018 500px shut off their API. jekyll-500px-embed used the 500px API to retrieve information about a photo in order to render the embedded html and no longer functions without the API.


  1. Copy 500px_tag.rb into your site's plugins directory.
  2. Create a file containing a 500px API consumer key in the root directory of your site. A consumer key can be obtained by creating an app with 500px.
  3. Add the file containing your consumer key to your .gitignore.
  4. Add the following to your _config.yml
500px_consumer_key_file: 500px-consumer-key

where 500px-consumer-key is the name of the file created in #2.

  1. Add the following javascript to any page you wish to use the plugin on, or use the included copy.
<script src="//" type="text/javascript"></script>


Supply the photo id you wish to embed to the 500px tag. The photo id can be found in the photo's url on

{% 500px 89255597 %}
