We've found a few third-party Instagram feeds that work well in Showit sites using our Embed Code widget.  

Using Snapwidget

Using Woxo

Using Lightwidget

Using Snapwidget.com (Free or Paid)

The free widget includes ads in the feed. The paid plans start at $6/mo. (see their pricing page)

  1. Go to https://snapwidget.com/

  2. Create a free account

  3. From your widget dashboard, choose the "Instagram" tag in the top to narrow down the options for Instagram style groups. Then select "Create A New Widget" when you find a style you prefer.

4. Add your Instagram account username then you can set the look and styling of your widget while viewing the live preview in the top left of the window

5. Click "Get Widget" in the bottom right when you have finished creating the layout of your feed

6. Copy the code from the pop-up window and log into your Showit account

7. Add an embed box to a canvas and paste the code

If the widget appears to be sizing incorrectly in the Preview:

Sometimes the embed codes are generated to be a set width and height. This can make for strange sizing and positioning than what you have set in the editor. This can be fixed by editing the embed code size properties. These are found by looking for a width and height section in the code containing a set pixel size. To fix that, replace the values to be 100%

Using Woxo.com (free)

This free widget includes a watermark

  1. Go to https://woxo.tech/dashboard

  2. Create a free account

  3. Create your desired widget

4. Add your Instagram account and then you can click "Layout" to edit how you would like the Instagram Widget to display:

5. Once the Instagram Account is connected, then you can click "Install" in the top right

6. Copy the code from the pop-up window and log into your Showit account

7. Add an embed box to a canvas and paste the code

8. If done correctly then you should be left with your Instagram Widget looking something like this

Using Lightwidget.com (paid)

The paid widget is currently a flat fee of $10/widget

LightWidget offers similar free and paid options, however, the paid version (see pricing) is the only one that supports loading on secure websites (all Showit sites are secure by default). 

The setup instructions would be the same as shown for SnapWidget above.
