I don’t like the shortcode output

Sorry to hear that, tell us what you don’t like and we can make it better via a plugin update

I activated the plugin but don’t see any posts

Note that you also have to enable your social feeds, navigate to the appropriate settings and check enable, make sure to fill in all the keys you have and save the settings, this should automatically load your posts. Or click import now if the function doesn’t run immediately.

If you’re using instagram only, make sure to click “Authenticate” to get your api access key and run the import again. Instagram API has a better protection, so don’t worry to include your username and password.

How do I output the feed on my page

Just add the [sprites-feed] shortcode into your page editor and publish the post. Voilá, your posts should be visible automatically.

How does the plugin work?

Our plugin makes use of the wp_cron function and automatically fetches posts from the enabled API’s every hour, note that wp_cron runs based on your site traffic, so if there’s literally no traffic, some posts may not be fetched. In order to import the posts immediately, you can use the import button in each of the API’s settings.

Reviews

simple but powerful

Plugin that helps to create custom social feeds from instagram, facebook, flickr, youtube or twitter.

Having all the data included in a selected post type helps to create custom templates and customize the feed without using the embed options from social sites, if there are some.
