This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest three major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Insta Feed Widget


One Stop for all your Instagram needs

Create Instagram gallery with your recent image uploads. Define what attributes are displayed like username, bio or number of followers. Set how many images are shown and how many columns you want.
That is it!

Nice and simple style fits in every theme

Hovering over an image shows overlay with caption (or start of it in case it is too long) and number of likes and comments. Click gets you to Instagram image page to comment or like.

No loading with javascript that can fail (like in many other Instagram widgets). No ajax to wait for on startup.

Based on great Simple Instagram plugin by Aaron Speer.
