Like it before ir broke my site

Worked fine for a while, but then my site broke today. My hosting company's response: "It looks like the instapress plugin was fed after midnight and has spawned a litter of gremlins."

DO NOT INSTALL this Plug in
By , for WP 3.6.1

Its the only plug-in I have connected to Instagram. In my instagram settings it is the only Authorized Application I have.

I now have started following strange people on Instagram that I never authorized. I Suspect ("BUT CANNOT BE DEFINITELY POSITIVE") this plug-in is an aggregator selling followers to people and logging in with your acct info.

Change Your Password and delete the plug-in.

In your menus just create a link to your Instagram Profile. It's a better solution any way.

Does the job, but with a lot of errors
By , for WP 3.6.1

When activating this plugin you'll get a lot of errors that you need to fix manually before you even get it to work. Like replacing all instances of &$ with $.
With WP debug on you'll then get some more errors about deprecated features as well.

It does work as expected after fixing all these errors. But it sure would be nice if the plugin got updated (hasn't been for a year now) to solve all these problems!
Feels a little un-secure and unreliable to use a plugin with this many errors.

Needs updating but works fine with work
By , for WP 3.6

This plugin uses the deprecated php call-time pass-by-reference so it will throw a fatal error if you are using php4. I have fixed this issue in my local copy but unfortunately the author seems to not keep an online repo where I can submit my pull request.

Simply fix the above issue and this plugin is great.

For those having the same problem replace all instances of &$ with $.

Really simple instagram plugin, all the basic features you want, none of the complexity you need.

Old plugin but for the moment works
By ,

Even if it's old and says it's only compatible up to 3.3, I'm using it at 3.5 and it's working, easy and quick to setup, I had trouble with other Instagram plugins such as Simply Instagram or Easy Instagram and this one works.

The code is using a php feature deprecated since 2004 and which has been a known issue and unpatched for a year. I would stay away from this.
