Doesn't work
By , for WP 4.5.3

It is hard to review this plugin because it doesn't work. It was installed on 3 blogs and worked fine suddenly it stopped working. Tried to contact support to report this fault but my message was ignored. This left me with no choice other than to source an alternative.

Difficult to set up
By ,

Configuration is confusing.

No longer works
By , for WP 4.3.1

What was a decent, functioning plugin is now a rubbish, non-functioning empty space on my website. There's a thread in the support forum highlighting the problem but the developer is ignoring/hiding/not aware of the issue.

Happy to knock my rating back up once the plugin works again but for the moment I'm not happy about the situation.

Giving it another week before I uninstall and find an alternative.

Images gone in latest release
By , for WP 4.3.1

Since updating the latest version of this plugin, the images have stacked on top of each other and the opacity has been set to 0.

Hopefully the author gets a fix out for this. Some of our clients aren't too happy, and it's never fun explaining that the plugin author released an update before testing.

If things get resolved, I will update this review - otherwise we'll need to find an alternative or write an Instagram plugin of our own.

Simple install can't show images in widget area
By , for WP 3.9.1

can you help me please can't show images whit this plugin

works alright
By , for WP 3.8.1

worked good for a long time, but randomly stopped. Trying to manually sync the feed always results in an error message. Even went in and changed my API settings, created a new instagram client and still no luck. i'd recommend looking elsewhere!

Extremely slow
By , for WP 3.6.1

This widget adds 40 secs to the load time to my client's site. Until they fix this its not a usable widget.

Looking for something more reliable
By , for WP 3.6

This plugin freezes my browser up every time I click on the first image in a widget context. It's happening in Chrome, Safari and Firefox. If anyone can recommend something more reliable let me know!

needs authorization

A very poorly done plugin
By , for WP 3.4.2

Changing endpoints for shortcode doesn't make a difference on what shows up on the website. Changing size manually in the shortcode doesn't do anything.
Settings for both the PrettyPicture and single image don't always come through, and don't update properly.
Nowhere to specify the quantity of images to be displayed.
