Basic and easy to use
By , for WP 4.1.2

Does what it claims to do: Displays images from Instagram. A bit confusing at first since the plugin lack a settings page. Add the widget, auth. with Instagram and the images are displayed.

Brilliant!

Finally, a plug in that can handle displaying favorited photos and hashtags. On the first try! Thank you! Easy install, easy auth connection to Instagram.

Just doesn't work

Deceptively simple, but doesn't work at all.

Prevents me from loading the widgets admin page with this error, typos and all.

There was an issue generating the initialisation code for thie widget. Please try again by refreshing the page:

Fatal error: Call to a member function get_error_messages() on a non-object in <b>/html/wp-content/plugins/instagram-for-wordpress/templates/initError.php on line 6

Looking for a different widget.

Don't like the update
By , for WP 3.7.1

I really don't like the new update at all. The main reasons I used this plugin was 1) my profile didn't have to be public and 2) when the viewer clicked on the image it would take them straight to the photo on instagram making it slightly easier if they wanted to follow or not. And upgrading to premium is definitely not worth $5/mo!! I'd love to get the old version back but I don't see that happening.

Setup instructions are out of date
By , for WP 3.7

I installed the plugin okay through the WordPress plugin interface, and it activated with no problem, but then I couldn't figure out how to add it to my site.

The instructions for setup here say to go to "Appearance --> Widgets", but I have no such menu option, and I've looked all over the Appearance section.

What good is a plugin you can't use?

What happened?

I really liked this plugin before. Now, I really donĀ“t know what to say anymore.

This used to be an excellent and useful plugin.

Version 1.0 breaks it entirely, and attempts to force you into having to pay for a bunch of features that still don't work right.

AVOID THIS PLUGIN.
