Adding an Instagram Feed

In this article, you’ll learn how to showcase your latest Instagram posts on your website.

We’ve tested for you lots of plugins that offer Instagram integration for your website. We strongly recommend the WPZOOM Social Feed Widget plugin because it has multiple options for displaying an Instagram feed and is periodically updated to keep up with new changes. 

  1. Install the plugin by navigating to PluginsAdd new and search for “WPZOOM Social Feed Widget.” Click on Install and then Activate it.
  2. Navigate to Settings → Instagram Widget → click on Connect with Instagram;
  3. Once you grant access to your account, click the Save Changes button, and you’re done.

Add the Instagram feed to your website

If you want to add it to your website’s widget areas, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Appearance → Customize → Widgets and select the Widget Area where you’d like to add your feed.
  2. Click on Add a Widget and search for “Instagram Widget.”
  3. Wait until the page refreshes, and your Instagram feed should appear in the Preview Mode.
  4. You can customize the way your feed shows up on your website by changing the settings available in the widget area. Here’s a helpful screenshot.
  5. Click on Publish when you’re done.

Note: If you want your feed to show up horizontally in your footer, first, you need to change the Instagram Widget settings so that the Number of Images Shown is equal to the Desired number of Images per row. View screenshot for details. Next, navigate to Appearance → Customize → Theme Options → Footer, and change the Widget Area Number of Columns to “1” and the Widget Column width to “Whole.”
