<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/jquery-ui.css">

2. Define your stories (owners & files) in a JSON file.

// data.json
[
  {
    "owner": {
        "fullname": "jQueryScript",
        "guid": 1,
        "item_guid": 5,
        "icon": "1.jpg"
    },
    "files": [
      {
        "viewed": false,
        "title": "Story 1",
        "guid": 2,
        "time": "28\/20\/05 08:05",
        "url": "2.jpg"
      },
      {
        "viewed": false,
        "title": "Story 2",
        "guid": 3,
        "time": "28\/20\/05 08:05",
        "url": "3.jpg"
      }
    ]
  },
  {
    "owner": {
        "fullname": "CSSScript",
        "guid": 4,
        "item_guid": 40,
        "icon": "4.jpg"
    },
    "files": [
      {
        "viewed": false,
        "title": "Story 3",
        "guid": 5,
        "time": "28\/20\/05 08:05",
        "url": "5.jpg"
      },
      {
        "viewed": false,
        "title": "Story 4",
        "guid": 6,
        "time": "28\/20\/05 08:05",
        "url": "6.jpg"
      }
    ]
  }
]

3. Create a container to hold the gallery.

<div class="container-status" id="container-status"></div>

4. Initialize the plugin and determine the path to the JSON file.

$('.container-status').fbStories({
  dataurl: 'stories.json'
});

5. Specify the autoplay interval. Default: 1s.

$('.container-status').fbStories({
  dataurl: 'stories.json',
  delay: 3
});

6. Specify the background color of the progress bar. Default: '#F06'.

$('.container-status').fbStories({
  dataurl: 'stories.json',
  barColor: "#333"
});

7. Determine the number of previews to display on page load. Default: 5.

$page_limit = 5;
if($(window).width() < 480){
  $page_limit = 2;
}

$('.container-status').fbStories({
  dataurl: 'stories.json',
  page_limit: $page_limit
});

8. Determine whether or not to show the Add button. Default: true.

$('.container-status').fbStories({
  dataurl: 'stories.json',
  showAdd: true,
  addText: '&#43;'
});

9. Execute a callback function when images are successfully loaded.

$('.container-status').fbStories({
  dataurl: 'stories.json',
  onShow: function(guid, url){
    console.log(guid + ' ' + url);
  }
});
