Stopped working and no longer maintained
By ,

This used to be a really useful plugin that was fairly easy to set up and gave you just the right amount of options for the display of either your own Instagram pictures or a feed based on an universal tag.

Unfortunately it is no longer maintained. This spring it has slowely stopped working. First the tag-stopped. Not everywhere, just in a couple of places but now it is more broken than working.

I have tried other options (I will not mention which because then one of the moderators will turn up and deleate this) but haven't found anything as useful.

Easy integration but weak functionality
By ,

It was easy to setup and runs well.

Unfortunately, it appears to lack some basic functionality like using a date range to select which photos to show. Instead, you can simply set the number of images to show (up to 100).

Wont work if jQuery is loaded at the bottom. Plugin author does not respond.
By , for WP 3.8.1

I tried using this plugin, however it won't load due to the fact my jQuery is loaded at the bottom. There's an option in the plugin to force jQuery load on top, however this seems like a workaround not a solution.

I tried contacting the plugin author, to see if he could help me with loading it with jQuery at the bottom of the page, however he never responded.

Oh well.

The plugin author contacted me. He's super upset about my review. Although he did explain the reason the plugin could not work with jQuery loaded in the footer.
