Instagram API changes?


Anyone up on the status of plugins like with the changes to the Instagram API?

Do they still work?


Hard to say. Did you try asking the author?


Instagram now requires you to have an access_token.

Login in to Instragram Developer page and create a new client. Fill in the info.

Use this OceanWP to obtain your access_token.

You can view their page on how to obtain an Instagram access token as well.


Appreciate the reply. @duceduc. I have had a quick look through the documentation and created a test client. The URL provided by the instead API generates a feed, though the Grav test site (timeout?) generates the following error

Server Error
Sorry, something went terribly wrong!

0 - An exception has been thrown during the rendering of a template ("Error while trying to download (code: 400):************&count=8 ").

For further details please review your logs/ folder, or enable displaying of errors in your system configuration.'

Appreciate any suggestions and I will try to dig deeper…

[I have removed the instagram access token and preached with ‘************’]


Code: 4 may possible be “The access_token provided is invalid.”
With the url you provided, input your access token and access it via the browser. Do you still get an error?


Appreciate the reply @duceduc. I can access the Instagram data directly via the URL generated (above with API key) — which has me a little stumped.

Only thing I can think of for now is that I am doing testing locally (using MAMP), and the domain for the API key is different (the site is not on a remote server/web accessible domain I registered to create the access token). I have not had a chance to test the site yet on a remote server…
