How to get my photos?? (2 posts)

    I downloaded instapress and verified my account information in the plugin settings. However, when I add the widget to my side bar, I get random photos by strangers, not my own. Not sure why this is happening - I have set up instapress on two other WP blogs without this happening, but now it does not work for my own blog!

    Please advise! Thank you!

    Hi Carrie, I don't have any experience with your specific problem, I haven't had any issues like yours. So, not sure if I could be of any help? But based on the info and questions I've seen from here and your other posts. I would ask, in your widgets area are you using your instagram name or a specific tag? Don't use both, use either-or. And if you are trying to add it to a page or post make sure you use one or the other there as well, and not both.

    So in a post or page you would have something like either of these two options:

    [instapress userid="Your Instagram User Name" piccount="15" size="100" effect="fancybox" paging="1"]


    [instapress tag="Your Instagram Specific Tag" piccount="15" size="100" effect="fancybox" paging="1"]

    See the difference?

    On a test I did, if you don't have either the tag or userid noted random pictures appeared on my site. For the second test I did when I add both a tag and a userid, nothing showed up. Not sure if any of this helps? But other than what I've stated, not sure I could help any further.

    Hopefully it works for you.
