What Others are Saying
Brilliant plugin and even better support! By Deanobenzino, June 23, 2015 for WP 4.2.2
I searched for a while to find a decent plugin for an Instagram Feed. This is by far the best, the most stable and very intuitive to use. That being said, the support that I received when asking about a certain functionality I was looking for was fantastic. They were quick to respond and immediately gave me potential solutions. Very professional. Thanks guys!
Works beautifully and simply! By Melissa, July 4, 2015 for WP 4.2.2
I’ve been using a different Instagram plugin on my site, but saw this implemented recently so I tested it against the other plugin — and this one wins hands down.
Easy to set up. Beautiful, clean feed. Everything I need! I’ll be upgrading to pro soon! Thanks for the great work!
great plugin and 5 star support By frurosborg, June 9, 2015 for WP 4.2.2
i have used many many instagram plugins but this one is the best yet and the support is outstanding. they got back to me and fixed my problem in the hour! do not hesitate. just get it!
5 starsExcellent Plugin, even better support! By soerfi, January 15, 2015 for WP 4.1
For 2 years I was searching for a plugin like this and I bought the Pro right away without hesitating. Exactly what I was looking for! I just had a small issue with the plugin and the alignment from my Template. David solved this within 2 hours!
2 thumbs up!
**5 starsGreat plugin – Fantastic support By inventia, January 1, 2015 for WP 4.1
The plugin is easy to install and setup, AND it looks great!
Needed to customize it with some CSS and sent a question to the developer. He responded a few hours later (ON CHRISTMAS EVE!!!) with a CSS code that I could copy&paste to the plugins Custom CSS Section.
Great plugin and fantastic support!
5 starsawesome plugin / amazing support By seiran1, December 22, 2014 for WP 4.1
getting things up and running was really straight forward and easy. because of the some custom features the client wanted, I ended up buying the pro version – which was well worth it. I started including some custom coding and when I hit a brick wall, John at Smash Balloon was incredibly quick to give me a hand and stuck in there when I fired off a ton of questions.
thanks again for the awesome plugin and the top-notch support. the plugin is definitely recommended and beats every single other plugin I tried for an instagram tie-in.
5 starsGreat plugin, greater support! By rezza_marco, January 8, 2015 for WP 4.1
This plugin is what i was looking for, and it’s also very easy to use.
But the best part is about the support. I needed some advices and css customization. I had an email exchange with John, he always answered really fast (matter of few hours) and was totally helpful.
Outstanding support By leanderbraunschweig, June 12, 2015 for WP 4.2.2
First things first: The plugin does a great job. I needed an Instagram plugin that was flexible and lightweight enough to work in a corporate environment and am very satisfied.
But what surprised me the most was the brilliant support I got – responsive, professional and last but not least also very friendly.
Kudos Smashballoon! Thanks + keep up the good work.
Exactly what I was looking for! By orthostice, July 4, 2015 for WP 4.2.2
Great stuff– there are a few other instagram gallery plugins out there, but they’re not as easy to customize and, importantly, they don’t get the presentation right. I don’t want borders or drop shadows or to emulate what instagram’s home page looks like– I want my photos pulled from that service and displayed on my website in a way that matches the rest of my work and my other galleries. Great support, fantastic plugin!
Incredibly good service and a super solid plugin… By skafte, July 29, 2015 for WP 4.2.3
Incredibly good service and a super solid plugin that does exactly what you want it to do. One of my very best (plugin/theme) customer experiences ever! Thanks!
Great support! By jillybekkers, November 24, 2015
When I was trying something out, I bumped into a problem.
The service wasn’t only super fast but also extremely helpful!
In 2 mails, they understood exactly what I wanted and fixed it.
Thanks a lot!!
Amazing possibilities, great support By conchrisoulis, November 23, 2015 for WP 4.3.1
I needed the Instagram Feed for the needs of my clients who are launching a baby clothes store and wanted to mirror their Instagram Feed on their front page.
The Feed is customized and works easily (via a simple link in a Page) and most importantly is provided immediate support by its creator, John, through the plug-in’s WordPress support page.
Love this plugin! By YvonneOH, November 18, 2015 for WP 4.3.1
I had to make some adjustments to how the Instagram feed would display on my website and the support was very efficient and quick in helping me get the job done. Thanks! 🙂

awesome plugin and fantastic support By chingchingching, October 15, 2015 for WP 4.3.1
plugin exactly meets my need with all customised settings for both those who prefer a fancy layout or simple one! Love their really quick and responsive technical support as well!
Highly customizable with great customer service By BJIFashionGroup, October 14, 2015 for WP 4.3.1
This plugin is awesome! We tried out many Instagram feed plugins and this is by far the best one. It is highly customizable and allows the feed to be generated using many hashtags and many usernames; it also allows many images to be hidden if they are spam/inappropriate/unnecessary for your specific feed.
A couple months into using this plugin we ran into a bit of a problem/bug with the functionality and the Smash Balloon staff was SO HELPFUL and friendly. They fixed the problem in a timely matter and were very patient with my questions.
I definitely recommend this plugin!
Neat By BeatIdo, October 12, 2015
Neat plugin and responsive support !
Best Instagram Plugin By Le Claqueur de Doigts, October 10, 2015 for WP 4.3.1
If you’re looking for the best Instagram plugin, look no further.
Not only Instagram Feed is fully customizable so that you can tweak it to taste and make it fit the way that suits you best on your site, but the support team is also simply awesome.
Faster than light feedbacks, clear and detailed solutions is what you can expect from the team if you need an extra help.
By far my best experience with a support.
Thanks again David ! 🙂

Don’t look any further By songbirdechoes, October 8, 2015 for WP 4.3.1
Besides the fact that I am in love with this plugin which came pre-installed with my Pipdig theme, I must say the support is also great! John is fairly prompt with his responses and provides detailed and clear solutions. Look no further for the perfect Instagram plugin for your site 🙂
Fantastic support By Dhruv, October 7, 2015
Quick to revert on support and get things going!
CSS padding By namaste364, October 7, 2015 for WP 4.3.1
As it tuned out it wasn’t anything to do with the plugin, it was a problem on my site. David was so helpful and suggested a fix for it.
Perfect! By shashankkumar, October 7, 2015 for WP 4.3.1

Works perfect, custom attributes come in handy when integrating the feed with a multilingual site
Stunning! By RynoDekker, September 28, 2015 for WP 4.3.1

Great plugin with great support and service By northguide, September 21, 2015 for WP 4.3.1
I’ve deployed many wordpress plugins over the years and this plugin is easily one of the best. The installation was flawless. I was able to set up my instagram feeds in minutes and able to get the look I wanted using the options in the short code with only a few, minor tweakings. I had some questions about additional capabilities and was impressed how quickly I support got back to me with some solutions. Solid performance in all aspects so far. Never been happier with a plugin purchase.
Support that works By Petervee, September 17, 2015 for WP 4.3.1
I’ve been developing with WordPress for over 5 years. I have submitted numerous support queries in the past to developers with no or very little interaction or reply. This morning I had a question for the guys at Smash Balloon and sent off a form to support. I got a personalised email back with steps on how to solve my issues. Thanks guys, your service and your plugin are amazing!
The Smash Balloon guys are ROCK STARS!
Great product and quick support! By nayeonkim, September 16, 2015 for WP 4.3.1
This plugin is one of the best ones out there for Instagram feed. Great product and support! I recommend this plugin.
Instagram Platform Policy
We provide the Instagram APIs to support several types of apps and services. First, we provide them to help members of our community share their own content with apps or services. We also support apps and services that help brands and advertisers understand and manage their audience, develop their content strategy, and obtain digital rights. Finally, we provide the Instagram APIs to help broadcasters and publishers discover content, get digital rights to media, and share media using web embeds. The Instagram APIs are not intended for other types of apps or services. For those we do support, the following terms and information also apply:
A. General Terms
Ensure your app is stable and easily navigable.
Don’t confuse, deceive, defraud, mislead, or harass anyone.
Be transparent about your identity and your app’s identity.
Don’t use the Instagram APIs for any app that constitutes, promotes or is used in connection with spyware, adware, or any other malicious programs or code.
Don’t store or cache Instagram login credentials.
Follow any instructions we include in our technical documentation.
Provide meaningful customer support for your app, and make it easy for people to contact you.
Comply with any requirements or restrictions imposed on usage of Instagram user photos and videos (“User Content”) by their respective owners. You are solely responsible for making use of User Content in compliance with owners’ requirements or restrictions.
Remove within 24 hours any User Content or other information that the owner asks you to remove.
Obtain a person’s consent before including their User Content in any ad.
Only store or cache User Content for the period necessary to provide your app’s service.
If you store or cache User Content, keep it up to date. For example, if a user marks a photo as “private”, you must reflect that change by removing the content as soon as reasonably possible.
Don’t use the Instagram API to simply display User Content, import or backup content, or manage Instagram relationships, without our prior permission.
Don’t apply computer vision technology to User Content, without our prior permission.
Don’t participate in any “like”, “share”, “comment” or “follower” exchange programs.
Don’t use follower information for anything other than analytics without our prior permission. For example, don’t display these relationships in your app.
Only use the POST and DELETE endpoints after a business has taken an explicit action in your app requesting you to do so.
Only use the POST and DELETE likes, comments, and relationships endpoints to enable businesses to manage communication with people who have expressed interest in them. Don’t use these endpoints for non-business purposes.
Ensure your comments are uniquely tailored for each person. Don’t post unauthorized commercial communication or spam on Instagram.
Don’t enable a business to take more than one action on Instagram at a time.
Add something unique to the community. Don’t use the Instagram APIs to replicate or attempt to replace the functionality or essential user experiences of Instagram.com or any of Instagram’s apps.
Respect the way Instagram looks and functions. Don’t offer experiences that change it.
Don’t attempt to build an ad network on Instagram.
Don’t attempt to identify groups of individuals or create demographic clusters for the purpose of contacting or targeting Instagram members on or off Instagram.
Don’t transfer any data that you receive from us (including anonymous, aggregate, or derived data) to any ad network, data broker, influencer network, or other advertising or monetization-related service.
You can administer a promotion on Instagram if you comply with all applicable laws and regulations, but don’t directly incentivize other actions.
If you want to facilitate or promote online gambling, online real money games of skill, or online lotteries, get our written permission before using any of our products.
Don’t use an unreasonable amount of bandwidth, or adversely impact the stability of Instagram.com servers or the behavior of other apps using the Instagram APIs.
Don’t reverse engineer the Instagram APIs or any of Instagram’s apps.
Don’t sell, lease, or sublicense the Instagram APIs or any data derived through the APIs.
Comply with all applicable laws or regulations. Don’t violate any rights of any person, including but not limited to intellectual property rights, rights of privacy, or rights of personality. Don’t expose Instagram or people who use Instagram to harm or legal liability.
B. Brand Assets
Comply with Instagram’s Brand Guidelines. Don’t use the trademarks of Instagram or its affiliates without written permission, including as authorized by applicable brand guidelines.
C. Things you should know
Instagram primarily communicates with developers through email. Please ensure that the email addresses associated with your Instagram account are current and that you don’t filter out these messages.
Instagram may rate limit or block apps that make a large number of calls to the API that are not primarily in response to direct user actions.
Enforcement is both automated and manual, and can include disabling your app, restricting you and your app’s access to Instagram APIs, requiring that you delete data, terminating our agreements with you or any other action that we deem appropriate.
Instagram may change, suspend, or discontinue the availability of any Instagram APIs at any time. In addition, Instagram may impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Instagram APIs or the Instagram website without notice or liability.

You don’t have any authority to assume or create any obligation for or on behalf of Instagram, express or implied, and you must not attempt to bind Instagram to any contract.
Invalidity of Specific Terms: If any provision of the Instagram API Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision and that the other provisions remain in full force and effect.
No Waiver of Rights by Instagram: Instagram’s failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Instagram API Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
- 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 shortcode options, for example:
[instagram-feed id="12986477" cols=3].
- Can I display photos from more than one Instagram account in one single feed?
Yep. You can just separate the IDs by commas, either in the User ID(s) field on the plugin’s Settings page, or directly in the shortcode like so:
- How do I find my Instagram Access Token and User ID
We’ve made it super easy. Simply click on the big blue button on the Instagram Feed Settings page and log into your Instagram account. The plugin will then retrieve and display both your Access Token and User ID from Instagram.
You can also display photos from other peoples Instagram accounts. To find their Instagram User ID you can use this tool.
- 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.
- Your Instagram account may be set to private. Your Instagram account may be set to private. Instagram doesn’t allow photos from private Instagram accounts to be displayed publicly.
- Your User ID may not be valid. Be sure you’re not using your Instagram username instead of your User ID. You can find your Instagram User ID by using this tool.
<?php wp_footer(); ?>
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 clicking the blue Instagram login button and then copy and pasting it into the plugin’s ‘Access Token’ field.
Occasionally the blue Instagram login button does not produce a working access token. You can try this link as well.
2) Your Instagram User ID is incorrect or is from a private Instagram account
Please double check the Instagram User ID that you are using. Please note that your Instagram User ID is different from your Instagram username. To find your Instagram User ID simply enter your Instagram username into this tool.
If your Instagram User ID doesn’t show any Instagram photos then it may be that your Instagram account is private and that the Instagram photos aren’t able to be displayed.
5) 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
6) 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 shortcode options that I can use to customize my Instagram feed?
The below options are available on the Instagram Feed Settings page but can also be used directly in the
[instagram-feed]shortcode to customize individual Instagram feeds on a feed-by-feed basis.
- General Options
- id – An Instagram User ID – Example:
- width – The width of your Instagram feed. Any number – Example:
- widthunit – The unit of the width of your Instagram feed. ‘px’ or ‘%’ – Example:
- height – The height of your Instagram feed. Any number – Example:
- heightunit – The unit of the height of your Instagram feed. ‘px’ or ‘%’ – Example:
