Display your Feed

Single Instagram Feed

Copy and paste the following shortcode directly into the page, post or widget where you'd like the Instagram feed to show up: [instagram-feed]

Multiple Instagram Feeds

If you'd like to display multiple Instagram feeds then you can set different settings directly in the shortcode like so: [instagram-feed num=9 cols=3]

You can display as many different Instagram feeds as you like, on either the same page or on different pages, by just using the shortcode options below. For example:

[instagram-feed]
[instagram-feed id="ANOTHER_USER_ID"]
[instagram-feed id="ANOTHER_USER_ID, YET_ANOTHER_USER_ID" num=4 cols=4 showfollow=false]
