Slows websites to a crawl
By , for WP 4.2.2

Without this plugin enabled our reference site took less than 2 seconds to load.

With this plugin enabled the reference site took over a minute to load.

The reference site was under investigation for consistently causing high loads on our shared web server. While it's too soon to say for a fact that this plugin is responsible, I'd say there's a very good bet.

Avoid. Like. The. Plague.

Image stretches in Genesis theme
By , for WP 4.1.1

I used your Instagram Slider Widget on my previous Obox (Flatpack responsive) theme and I loved it. Thank you.

Unfortunately the Instagram Slider Widget doesn't work the same my on my new Genesis (Foodie responsive) theme:
- Reason - Instagram Slider Widget looks great in the Genesis sidebar when the website is at full width. However when you reduce the page width slightly (thus causing the sidebar contents to move to the bottom of the page) the slider picture stretches to the full width of whatever size your window is.
- Instead of the neat uniform Instagram photo that displayed in the sidebar, the now stretched Instagram photo becomes big and grainy.

(PS. I meant to rate Instagram Slider Widget as 4/5, not 5/5 because it isn't suitable for my Genesis theme.)

If you need non-photo media support

Instagram can display photos, videos, gifs.. but this plugin is by default limited to images only.

You can change that easily by commenting lines 838 to 840.

Hope it will help some of you ;)

Really Great Slider

Im using this slider on my website and couldnt be happier with it. Had a couple of issues lately with the slider not working but this was down to Instagram changes and i have been more than happy with the plugin support and forum.
