Connect your Instagram and your shop through this functionality. In order to configure the Instagram widget in your store, you will need to have an access token and user id which you can obtain following the instructions below.
- Create an Instagram app for your store. Just go to https://www.instagram.com/developer/ and log in with your account. From the "Manage Clients" menu "Register a new" client and fill in the necessary information. It is important to specify your store url for the "Website Url" and "Valid Redirect Urls". Then when the client is created click on the Edit button and go to the Security tab. Uncheck the "Disable implicit OAuth" option in order to be able to authorize your app without a server side code.
- Once you register your client you will need to obtain the access token necessary in order to authorize your store in Instagram. For this just enter the following url https://api.instagram.com/oauth/authorize/?client_id=CLIENT-ID&redirect_uri=REDIRECT-URI&response_type=token where you need to replace the CLIENT-ID with the one from your client and the REDIRECT-URI with the one enterd when registering your client. After you have entered this URL you will be prompted to log in to your Instagram account and after that you will be redirected to the home page of your store and the link will look like http://your-redirect-uri/#access_token=ACCESS-TOKEN.
- Finally you need to retrieve your user id in order to display data from your profile like photos, etc. Just open the following link https://api.instagram.com/v1/users/self/?access_token=ACCESS-TOKEN where you replace the ACCESS-TOKEN with the one retrieved in the previous step. If everything goes well, you will be able to see your profile "id".
- Copy and paste both the UserID and the AccessToken into their respective text fields in the Instagram options and choose how many images you want to display.
- OPTIONAL: In addition, you can filter certain images from your profile by HASH tag
Please note that by default your Instagram client will be created in a sandbox mode in which there is a limitation of being able to get the 20 most recent posts only. When the client is created you can submit it for a review in order to be moved in a live mode where no limitations will be present
