  • I have tried the plugin and sometimes does not publish the publications, I think it is for the resolution of the featured image, I have tried many images with different resolutions, 800X600, 640X426, 640X356, 984X655, 770X512 etc and they have served me.

    Hello Guys,
    I had the same issue since a few hours today.

    Now I have found a work around that I share with you.

    The root cause of the issue probably came from Instagram in the yway they check the login and password.

    But so far in the plugin code, there is a use of a sub library “mgp25/Instagram-API” and in the way it is used so far there where something like

    $i = new \InstagramAPI\Instagram($username, $password, $debug);

    try {
    } catch (Exception $e) {

    And the problem come from the phase whith the try section where it tries to authenticate twice the user. This has worked so far, but today it does not work anymore.

    The first line $i = new \InstagramAPI\Instagram($username, $password, $debug); already login the plugin to instagram.

    So to make it works, now I had to put in comment the following lines (Around line 724 to 729 in wp2instagram.php )

    //try {
    // $i->login();
    //} catch (Exception $e) {
    // $e->getMessage();
    // exit();

    And now my post are shown again in instagram.

    So Roland (The author of the plugin), if you pass here I do not know if this is normal or not or if something needs to be adapted with a new version of the plugin.

    I just wanted to share this tips with all of you.

    dufour você poderia ser mais especifico, preciso urgentimente corrigir esse erro, sou lego em códigos, me ajude por favor!

    Problema resolvido, muito obrigado!

    I tried the fix, but mine is still not working?
    Has anyone else had good or bad results?

    I tried it, but it also didn’t work for me.

    @dufour_l Thanks for sharing the tip.
    I was editing the file you said and the snippet of code mentioned was already commented.
    Is everything still working for you?

    The developer probably did this when updating the plugin.
    But for me, even with the snippet of commented code, it does not work.

    @egonmarcelo como foi que você resolveu isso ?

    There is a new update , with the @dufour_l suggestion, also the debugging is included.
    You can share the debug response if there is any error

    Thanks to @dufour_l for contribution

    @seila162 depois da atualização, não está funcionando mais. Já tentei voltar pra versão antiga e alterar o código, mas mesmo assim não resolveu.
