When is „Simple Photo Feed“ needed?

Whenever you want your Instagram posts to be shown as a gallery in your WordPress website. Increase social engagement, save time by only posting your photos to Instagram and automatically displaying them on your website and keep your site looking fresh.

Do I need Instagram Access Tokens or Developer Accounts to use this?

We’ve made it super easy for you. Just click the „Connect Account“ button, login to your Instagram and accept the plugin. That’s it!

My Instagram feed isn’t displaying. Why not!?

There are a few common reasons for this:

  • Your Access Token may not be valid anymore. Click „Disconnect Account“ and re-connect to refresh the connection with Instagram’s API.
  • The cached feed may be invalid. Just click the „Clear Cache“ button in Settings and the plugin will fetch a fresh feed of media from your Instagram account.
  • You haven’t added the shortcode. Add [simple-photo-feed] in a page/post, where you want your instagram feed to be displayed.

If you’re still having an issue displaying your feed then please open a ticket in the Support forum with a link to the page where you’re trying to display the Instagram feed and, if possible, a link to your Instagram account.

Does „Simple Photo Feed“ require manual coding or file editing?

Absolutely not. No technical knowledge is needed at all. With a few clicks your Instagram posts will be synced with your website.

How do I embed my Instagram Feed directly into a WordPress page template?

You can embed your Instagram feed directly into a template file by using the WordPress do_shortcode function: <?php echo do_shortcode('[simple-photo-feed]'); ?>

Is „Simple Photo Feed“ compatible with my theme/plugins?

Of course! „Simple Photo Feed“ is compatible with any theme and plugin that follows WordPress coding standards.

I had been using a different add-on the whole time until it just stopped displaying anything. That’s why I fiddled with the settings for several days without success. Fortunately, this add-on is available as a replacement.It doesn’t offer many setting options, but I don’t need them anyway. It’s supposed to display my Instagram posts properly in a widget, and it does that. Very quick to set up and it works perfectly!Thank you very much!
