2) Follow the onboarding steps to connect an account and create your first feed.
3) Customize your feed with tons of settings and options to display it just how you would like.
4) Once you’ve customized your Instagram feed, copy the [instagram-feed feed=1] shortcode.
5) Paste it into any page, post or widget where you want the Instagram feed to appear. Alternatively, use our handy block to add it to a page.
6) You can use our handy Instagram Feed widget to display a feed in a sidebar or other widget area.
Can I display multiple Instagram feeds on my site or on the same page?
Yep. You can display multiple Instagram feeds by using our built-in feed creation tool, for example:
Can I display photos from more than one Instagram account in one single feed?
Yep. You can connect multiple accounts and include them as sources when creating a feed.
Does the plugin work with Instagram oEmbeds?
Yes. In version 2.5, support was added to allow the plugin to power your Instagram oEmbeds as official support for these is no longer available in WordPress core. Just connect your account on the oEmbeds settings page inside the plugin and we’ll do the rest. No developer app or account required.
How do I connect my Instagram account?
We’ve made it super easy. Just follow the steps outlined when onboarding and you will have a connected account with simple clicks.
My Instagram feed isn’t displaying. Why not!?
There are a few common reasons for this:
- Your Access Token may not be valid. Try clicking on the blue Instagram login button on the plugin’s Settings page again and copy and paste the Instagram token it gives you into the plugin’s Access Token field.
If you’re still having an issue displaying your feed then please open a ticket in the Support forum with a link to the page where you’re trying to display the Instagram feed and, if possible, a link to your Instagram account.
Are there any security issues with using an Access Token on my site?
Nope. The Access Token used in the plugin is a “read only” token, which means that it could never be used maliciously to manipulate your Instagram account.
Can I view the full-size photos or play Instagram videos directly on my website?
This is a feature of the Pro version of the plugin, which allows you to view the photos in a pop-up lightbox, support videos, display captions, display photos by hashtag + more!
How do I embed my Instagram feed directly into a WordPress page template?
You can embed your Instagram feed directly into a template file by using the WordPress do_shortcode function:
<?php echo do_shortcode('[instagram-feed]'); ?>.
My Feed Stopped Working – All I see is a Loading Symbol
If your Instagram photos aren’t loading and all your see is a loading symbol then there are a few common reasons:
1) There’s an issue with the Instagram Access Token that you are using
You can obtain a new Instagram Access Token on the Instagram Feed Settings page by using the “connect” button to reconnect the account.
Occasionally the connect button inside the plugin does not succesfully update the access token. You can try this link as well.
4) The feed you are trying to display has no Instagram posts
If you are trying to display an Instagram feed that has no posts made to it, a loading symbol may be all that shows for the Instagram feed or nothing at all. Once you add an Instagram post the Instagram feed should display normally
5) The shortcode you are using is incorrect
You may have an error in the Instagram Feed shortcode you are using or are missing a necessary argument.
What are the available options that I can use to customize my Instagram feed?
There are plenty of options to customize your feed! See the list below:
* General Options
* width of feed – The width of your Instagram feed.
