it's okay

Found it pretty limiting, wanted to change some CSS to make my thumbnails a custom size and also change padding. Opened up the only CSS file I could find and the classes weren't in there. Seems like this plugin uses inline styling.. moving on to the next option.

Works but...

The plugin works as mentioned and was simple enough to setup but as the other person commented it doesn't look so good. The photos are all displayed as large thumbnails and you can't click on a photo to see the actual size you can only click on the user and go to their account.

With some tweaking it might work well but not atm.

I downloaded this hoping it would be a simple plug-in and play, especially given its name.

However, I found it to be anything but easy. First, you are presented with various fields in the settings that have no explanation whatsoever. Only after checking out the "Help" tab do you find out you need to create and register a developer account with Instagram. The documentation no longer matches the process on Instagram's site, which confuses things. After that, you need to go through other steps to actually set up the display options, etc. using various gallery-like codes.

As an expert user, I could figure it out, but the fact that the name and description suggests an easy install, setup, and use, that's what I expected, but did not find any of this plugin easy whatsoever. This much process might be worthwhile to some, but it's tiresome for the user who literally wants something plug-and-play.

I've removed this plug-in in favor of something simpler.
