Documentation for WordPress Plugin “Instagram Photo Display for WordPress”

Download and Installations:

Download & Install Core Plugin:

Install Pro Addons:

  • We assumed after purchased you downloaded the pro addon zip file
  • This zip package you need to install manually, wordpress code has very good tutorial about this.

Instagram App Creation:

As we have instagram extension for both joomla and wordpress we created a common tutorial for this part. The only different is for joomla extension the redirect url needs a forward slash but for wordpress you don’t need it. After you created the instagram app please collect the Client id and client secret. We will need that to configure instagram for wordpress.

Configure WordPress Instagram plugin:

After installing and activating the core plugin there will be a menu in left side in wordpress admin panel called CBX Insta Photos. Click the menu and Create new post.
Access Insta Photos
Next step is to put the client id and client secret and username for the instagram account. Please note that, you can not grab other user’s account’s photos, this developer account and username should be from same account. Configure others params and save. Then click Instagram connect and it will take you to instagram for permission and redirect back to you to edit screen again after giving permission. Now save once again and you are done configuring.
Client id and client secret

Using the Plugin: shortcode and Widget:

Shortcode is very straight forward like bellow, rest params or setting is pulled from the Insta Post setting as configured from the edit screen.
[cbxinstaphotos id="post id here"]

There is widget version that you can access from Appearance => Widgets => Insta Photos
If pro addon is enabled then there is another widget available which helps to select multiple account “Insta Photos Multi”
Individual widgets has it’s own setting.
