I’ve updated the plugin to version 1.6, and ever since – the area on my website where the feed used to show simply shows “Provide API access token / Username” despite the fact that both the API and username are set. What happened?
@bvarvel: There seems to be an issue with the Widget while the showing the feed via tags. The issue will be fixed soon and an update wil be released. I will let know when the update is released. Thank you for reporting us the issue.
@bvarvel: Hello there, If you were using tag support for a Personal Account, the feature to make use of tags for a personal account has been removed by Instagram. You can only use Instagram tags on Business Account from now on. For that you will need to have Business Instagram Account and also a Facebook Page which needs to be connected to the Instagram account. We are working on this feature and waiting for an approval from Facebook. For more information please follow this link.
The point of displaying posts by tag is that it would return all Instagram posts (regardless of user who posted them) that were tagged with a particular hashtag. Even if I wanted to only show posts that were tagged from my account (which is a business account and linked btw), the widget gives me the option to show by username OR tag (which doesn’t work) but not both.
The only way I see this working right now is if I setup a separate Instagram account specifically for the website (event) and have someone dedicated to making Instagram posts about the event. What I really wanted was for all our guests to be able to build the feed through the use of a hashtag.
