  2. To comply with Instagram API term of use, you cannot cross-post other users’ photo/video. Instead, you’ll be able to embed other users’ Instagram photo/video. When you click “Repost This”, you will be redirected to WordPress add new post screen with the Instagram photo/video automatically embedded on the editor.

2. Import
