Only thumbnail size plus other obstacles
By , for WP 4.1.1

I thought I might have gotten that wrong in the widget settings and thus created a shortcode in order to get full-sized images, but it only grabs the tiny thumbnail version of images no matter what. Also, linking to the external images on Instagram only seems to work on a shortcode, so you actually cannot really use the widget. Since I see a lot of complaints and the latest update from a year ago, with no support in sight, I hereby post my first negative feedback on WP.org ever. Well deserved, sorry.

Seems ok, but is Hackable
By ,

I installed this, and it works, looks good, but was hacked after a couple days, and now someone elses posts are appearing.

Mason.ry isn't working
By , for WP 3.5.1

Mason.ry or something is getting messed up and just overlaying each photo (the containing div actually) atop one another. Could be conflicts with jQuery in the theme, didn't really have time to thoroughly test it.

Slows website down
By , for WP 3.5.1

I have an e-commerce site where I wanted to add an instagram sidebar. I chose this plugin as it looked alright and did the job, however I realised later it MASSIVELY SLOWED my site's page loading time.

I have therefore removed the plugin. I do not recommend this plugin if your website is something other than a blog.
