We recently spoke about the work being done at RebelCode to bridge the gap between Web 2 and Web 3. Today we’re ready to announce our next step in making that happen.
Introducing NFT Galleries for WordPress!
Web 3 has been on our mind for a while and we’ve been getting more and more involved in all areas of it. We believe that it’s a big part of our future, so this project looks to connect it to our past and present – WordPress and Web 2.
What are NFTs and NFT galleries?
NFTs are non-fungible tokens, meaning unique digital tokens representing something.
If that doesn’t mean anything to you, you’re not alone. That’s why Jean, our founder, has been blogging about his journey of discovery with everything NFT. Check out his NFT guides and learn more from his personal experience researching and investing in some of the most promising NFT projects around.
Now, for the NFT galleries part, the idea behind the NFT Galleries plugin was for us to have a simple, effective, and automated way of creating online galleries of our own digital art collections.
As a company, we have been researching, investing in, and collecting digital art since it started to take off. But having a way to display them on our WordPress site was always a challenge, so we took it on and met our own need.
Meet the NFT Galleries plugin
NFT Galleries for WordPress is a free plugin available now on the WordPress repository.
We initially created the plugin for us to use here, on our own website. Just as we’ve done with our other plugins, once we were happy that it works reliably, we polished it up and released it to the public.
The product itself is based heavily on and inspired by our Spotlight Instagram Feeds plugin. The majority of the UI has been adapted for this use case and the connection was switched to the OpenSea API.
It includes a number of gallery customization options as well as moderation to hand-pick the NFTs you want to display in each gallery. The plugin lets you create as many galleries as you want and connect as many wallets as you want.
The fact that we originally developed Spotlight in such a modular fashion two years ago was the reason that we were able to get to market so quickly with this new project. It took us around 3 weeks in total to put it together and release it.
NFT Gallery Demos
Check out some of our own NFTs and digital art below. These are all being displayed from our RebelCode wallets and embedded on this page using the NFT Galleries block.
The below gallery is displaying our collection of NFTs from the Hōrō project.
Perhaps more popular with the rest of the world, these are some of our favorite Doodles.
Try NFT Galleries
The NFT Galleries plugin is free to download and install on any website right now. All you have to do is connect your wallet and create your first gallery.
Not sure what a wallet is and how you can get your own? Learn all about it in this detailed guide to NFTs. Once you’ve got the basics down and you’ve acquired your first NFT, start displaying your collection on your website.
This is just the first of our experiments in Web3.
