Description

Why do you require this extension:

Social commerce is one of the biggest commerce trends over the recent years. Facebook, Twitter and alike may not drive tons of sales to e-commerce stores, but they definitely influence your market positions: branding, online reputation, search engine rankings as well as social recommendations of products and sellers.

Instagram is considered to belong to the next wave of social apps like Pinterest, TheFancy, etc.

With our Instagram Magento extension, you will add another social media integration that might appeal to your visitors.

Why should your customers care about this Instagram feature? It gives them a sense how your products look at different people, bodies, objects, etc – depends on what you sell, in fact.

How it works:

Instagram Magento extension allows you to display images by username. There is no option to display them by hashtag (the use case is not supported by Instagram anymore).

Your Instagram app should be in sandbox mode.

You have also options to display Instagram images either on home page, category pages or product pages. Or everywhere.

The last, but not the least feature – you have an option to moderate what images will be displayed at your website and what images should be omitted.

Instagram API settings should be properly configured:

Client ID: your Instagram Client ID
Client Secret: your Instagram Secret
Website URL: http://example.com/
Redirect URI: http://example.com/index.php/instagramconnect/auth/

Make sure to indicate correct redirect uri while installing the extension. If problems with connection still appear when you press auth on Instagram button from configuration do the following: In the address bar of your page with invalid uri find the following parameter redirect_uri. You are to paste its properties. Please check the following screenshot http://prntscr.com/26xkl0. Parameter properties are highlighted in blue.

Note that as the Instagram app is created in a sandbox mode initially the plugin supports Search by User (and not by tags).

If you use Magento 1.9.2.2 with the latest patches and intend to show an instagram block on Home page, then you need to add this block to Magento whitelist in the backend: System->Permissions->Blocks.

Extension features include:

  • Displays Instagram images by username (in sandbox mode)
  • Displays Instagram images on home page, on product pages, on category pages or everywhere
  • Allows the administrator filter what images to display and what images to hide
  • Easy localization with the language file
  • Takes just two minutes to install
  • 100% open source
  • Meets Magento development best practices

Very useful.
A very very very useful Magento extension that works without problems in Magento 1.9 using a customized theme with lots of extensions. I thought it wouldn't work at first, but it worked. It absolutely saved my time and money. Everything I need to display instagram images via hashtag is in this extension. Just a few clicks and the extension worked after calling the homepage template via CMS. It's works like magic! Thank you so much to the developer of this awesome extension! I'm so sooo soooo happy! :D
