Support » Plugin: 10Web Social Photo Feed » ‘Sorting Order’ by likes or comments does not show ‘Top Posts’ for a given hasht

  • Resolved homepageradio


    We want to display ‘top posts’ for a given hashtag but sorting order by ‘likes’ or ‘comments’ only displays what Instagram categorises as ‘Recent Posts’. There are posts that Instagram displays for a given hashtag with say 3000 likes but 10Web Instagram Feed – Instagram Gallery includes photos with only 5 likes for that same hashtag even though it’s ordering by number of likes. Instagram shows ‘Top Posts’ for a given hashtag. How do we display those photos?

  • Hi,

    We are sorry for the delayed response.

    Could you please add the URL of the page where you have your Instagram Feed running?

    Thank you!

    We don’t yet have a URL to share as the site is still being developed. We need the plugin to build the site. It’s a chicken/egg situation. Do you need further clarification to my query?

    Dear @homepageradio,

    We are sorry we did not get your question right, previously. No URL is needed.

    These changes are very hard to be applied, because Instagram API works in other way.

    You can get only the last 20 images from Instagram with one request. Then ask for the next 20, next 20 etc.

    That is why when you set sort by likes, only the last N images you want to display, are displayed and sorted. Because the plugin does not get all the images from Instagram.

    So if you want to display older images with more likes, you can preload more images beforehand. Then the plugin will sort them by number of likes. This option works if you set normal “pagination” type, not “load more”. You can increase then the number of “Pages To Preload”.

    Thank you and have a nice day!
