Widget Stopped Working (5 posts)

    I have the plugin installed as widget in my site's footer (http://carogriffin.com). It was working perfectly but I just noticed that it's no longer displaying a photo/title/any part of the widget.

    When I checked the widget area of my control panel, I found the client_id and client_secret now blank. When I tried to generate new ones, I found that the provided instructions no longer work. I'm assuming because Instagram has since changed their developer site in light of their recent changes.

    Does anyone know how to generate these two items and/or get the widget to start working again? I looked the forum but couldn't find a solutions. Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

    Apologies for that, they appear to have removed the link in the top menu to the manage clients page. You can access it here:


    We will update the instructions to reflect this change in their interface shortly.

    Many thanks,

    Thanks for your help! I'm not sure why that information disappeared in the first place but this fixed it.

    Thanks again,

    I have been using your fabulous plug in for already over a year i think, but now it stopped working.

    I went to the widget in my site to see what could have been the problem and also noticed that you are asking for new information such as client id and secret id.

    I followed your instructions, however, when I attempt to add a new client, instagram forwards me to my profile edit page. I have no option to retrieve this info any other way? Instagram just redirects me to my edit page, where I can edit my personal info.

    Please helppppp!!! :)

    Thnaks in advance & Happy Holidays,

    Hello!! Anyone in there??

    ...so i managed to find the client and secret id, and got the plug in "almost" working. The most recent photo shows up, which is good, but then doesn't rotate anymore (as it used to).

    Please, any ideas on why is this happening? I hope to get some sort of support this time!

    Thanks & Regards,
