Add latest Instagram pictures (feed) to your WordPress website


To show the 10 most recent pictures of my Instagram feed on my website, I was looking for a technique to this. I remembered that there is a Javascript which enables this.

But to make this work, you need a Instagram developer account and do some authentication to enable your website.

First I found this helpful codepen which demonstrates the functionality. After that I went through the documentation of Instagram which is straight forward.

What you need to do, once you have a Instagram developer account, is to create a client and fill where you want to use the feed for. In our case, the website we maintain. 

At the field “Website URL: …” you fill in the exact url of the page where you want to display the Instagram feed.

Once you have done this you can take the url below and change the “CLIENT-ID” and “REDIRECT-URI” for yours.

After visiting this url, you will see the “accessToken” at the end. Together with your “clientId” you are ready to use the instafeed.js.

See it in action here.
