Simple, stylish, and compact plugin for displaying Instagram photos in a sidebar, post, or page.
I'm having trouble adding a user and I keep getting an error message. Can you help?
There are a number of reasons that the plugin might be unable to retrieve your user information. The most common problems I have seen are due to the settings on the server that is hosting your WordPress website. To try and deal with these issues, I have created the Instagram Tool and hosted it on my website. The Instagram tools allows you to manually retrieve the information you need and to enter it into the plugin on the bottom of the Add Instagram User page.
I'm getting the message "Instagram feed was successfully retrieved, but no photos found". What does that mean?
This message simply means that while no distinguishable errors occurred, the plugin found your feed to be empty.
Can I insert the plugin in posts or pages? Is there a shortcode function?
Yes, you can display photos in posts or pages using what is called a shortcode. Rather than explaining how to setup the shortcode, I have added a tool to the Alpine PhotoTile plugin that generates the shortcode for you. Visit the "Shortcode Generator" on the plugin's settings page (Settings->AlpineTile: Instagram->Shortcode Generator).
Why doesn't the widget show my most recent photos?
By default, the plugin caches or stores the feed for three hours (see Caching above). If the new photos have still not appeared after this time, it is possible that Instagram is responsible for the delay.
How many photos can I display?
The plugin can retrieve and display up to 100 photos.
If you have any more questions, please leave a message at the Alpine Press. I am a one-man development team and I distribute these plugins for free, so please be patient with me.
