Used this plugin to display the instagram feed on my online store! Works perfect and it takes seconds to get your instagram feed on your website.

No directions for integration or customizing, despite what they say in the teaser

I am very happy with this plugin. I creates a nice overview of social media icons. Easy customization. Colors, size. It's all included in an easy to use way. And there is such a wide choice of available icons that you can always find one that fits in case the original icon is not available. And the developer adds new icons by request. How great is that?
