[resolved] Adding instagram username to tag posts (9 posts)

    Hi there,

    I've got Instaroll set up to automatically create posts for pics with a specified tag, which is working great. I'm just wondering though, if there's any way of automatically adding the username of the person who actually posted the pic, into the WP post?

    Thanks,
    Robin

    I think this is a feature we could implement in the next version.

    Hi there,

    I managed to add it into my theme by using

    get_post_meta($post->ID, '_wpinstaroll_insta_authorusername', true)

    ...but it would be great if the plug-in added the username into the post. Thanks!

    That's the correct way of inserting it, I'll add the option soon, thanx.

    Hi,

    could you please tell me where you've put:
    get_post_meta($post->ID, '_wpinstaroll_insta_authorusername', true)

    in your theme in order to make it work?

    Thank you!

    Hi mayabi,

    It needs to go inside the loop, although to be honest I ended up using IFTTT to pick up Instagram pics with a particular tag then post them to WordPress. Nothing against Felice's plug-in, which is great, it's just that in the end IFTTT was a better solution overall due to other elements of the project

    Any idea, when this will be added? I can't get it to work... Is there an estimate on when a new version will be released? Thanks a million! And thanks for this amazing plugin that has made it possible for us to build our website! :)
