Description

Are you looking for a free solution to showcase posts from various social platforms right on your website?

With Walls.io you can collect posts, photos and videos from multiple social media networks in one place and display them in a customizable social media feed that you can easily embed into your website.

To use this plugin you first need to get a free social wall account on walls.io, where you can create and customize a social media feed and add sources to it. The Free plan supports the most popular social platforms – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube – and allows you to add one source for each platform.

The Walls.io WordPress plugin makes it very easy for you to add your social media feed to WordPress. No programming skills needed. It only takes a minute.

Walls.io Social Feed

  • Go to walls.io, create a social feed for free, add sources, customize the design and setup post moderation.
  • Go and grab the link to your wall by clicking on its URL in the upper left corner of the Settings page.

Embed into a page or post

To add your Walls.io social media wall to a post or page using the WordPress Gutenberg editor, simply create a new block, search for “walls”, select the plugin, enter your wall’s URL and click “Embed”.

If you’re still using the old WordPress editor go in edit mode and click the “Add a Walls.io Wall” button located on the top of the editor. A new window will open where you can add your Walls.io social wall URL.

Features

Walls.io puts all your social media feeds in one place, allows you to moderate the content, design the feed so that it matches your brand’s website, and even post custom content. Here are the main features of the Walls.io social media feed:

  • It collects social content from multiple social platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest, Linkedin, ВКонтакте (VKontakte), Flickr, Tumblr, Reddit, Vimeo, Facebook Messenger, and others.

  • It has a powerful spam detection algorithm behind it, and filters spam based on text analysis as well as image-based NSFW detection, which helps keep spammy posts away from your social feed.

OK, this plugin is limited, with a pro version aimed squarely at companies with large social media budgets, but if it does enough for your site, then you won't find a better free plugin! Quick and easy to setup a Walls.io account, with an excellent user-friendly and feature-rich GUI which means you'll have a live feed on your site in minutes. In my case, the end result is a slick & attractive pinterest-style masonry wall of my image/video tweets. The only downside is the WALLS.IO branding which is a little heavy, appearing as both an acceptable 'Powered By' (enable header to push to bottom) and a harder to ignore image card appearing in your feed every 10 tweets (guys, could you ....?) Otherwise, 5 stars.

Great, If you're willing to pay €500 a month! Seriously, you need a premium account if you want to set things up properly. which will cost you €500 per 30 days!! Have to say that it works well and is easy to use though.
