Hi, I’ve been using your plugin for a while and it works well – However is there a way to make the instagram images load over https? I have an SSL and i’m getting ‘mixed media’ error on it because of the instagram images.

MaGeekLab

Hello again! As they told me, the images are returned with the full url with http by the instagram server, for next updates we plan to add a preg_replace function to load them with // so it match the protocol you are using in your website, if you need to implement it right now please email me to hello@mageeklab.com and I’ll tell you how!

Thanks!

Hi, if its going to be updating in less than a week then I can wait, however if its going to be longer I will send you an email. The plugin stopped working all together yesterday and stopped my pages loading – I assume there was a problem with the instagram API. Maybe in a future update you could have it so that it loads Async so it doesnt slow down the page?

MaGeekLab

Hello Souvraya, the update will not come before a week we have recoded it all, fixing issues and more, and yes we are working to make it “ajax loaded”, if you need help with that issue just send us an email :) Thanks!

hi, nice plugin but the lightbox with video is missplaced. also the play button. don’t know why. please have a look at the fist element on this page (its a video): http://finelinesmarketing.com/en/news/

THX.

MaGeekLab

Hi stephanra, currently I don’t even see the lightbox, could it be that you have disabled it with disable_js=”true” in the shortcode or something similar? I’ve checked and all the javascript files and css are loaded and there are no javascript errors, can you check that please? Thanks!

Default-user

Hi, thx for your response. mh, lightbox is there. in all browsers. only the play button is misplaced. I include your Jquery and this is my code: [mgl_instagram_user username=”xxxx” number=”32” pagination=”false” skin=”default”]

MaGeekLab

Hello stephanra! Yes! Now I see it, looks like the theme also load the video.js styles and they are conflicting with the ones of the plugin, could you add this line of css:

.mgl_instagram_video video { position:relative !important; }

This should set the video to the correct place again

Thanks!

Hello,

I’m trying to make it work, but I already tryed like ten times to autorize the app and it always give me this error:

{“code”: 400, “error_type”: “OAuthException”, “error_message”: “Redirect URI does not match registered redirect URI”}

MaGeekLab

Hello zigmasdirigeant, this issue means that the Redirect URI you setted in your app it’s not the same that is shown in the plugins config page, be sure when you copy it from one place to the other that there are no white spaces before or after, normally this is the main cause of the error

Thanks!

Hi – I just purchased and installed this plugin. I really only want to display my 10 most recent instagrams and do not want the view more option. Is there a way to turn the view more function off?

MaGeekLab

Hello ngibbons810, where are you placing the gallery? If it’s with a shortcode just add as another attribute for example [mgl_instagram_gallery username=”xxx” pagination=”false”]

Sorry before I told you a wrong parameter

Thanks!

Default-user

Hi There – That did the trick! Thank you!

MaGeekLab

Perfect! Happy to know that!

I just purchased this plugin and I get this message “Allow url fopen could not be enabled”. My hosting provider does not recommend I enable it. Is there another work around for this?

MaGeekLab

Hi hgdouglas

in order to get photos, the plugin tries to connect to Instagram in different ways . If plugin works fine, you have nothing to worry about. It is your case? If not, the better option is enable cUrl

We are improving the plugin to show this kind of messages in a proper way in the next version

Default-user

Oh…It still works. Thx

ezmacc Purchased

Is there anyway to make the images greyscale until the user hovers over them? Thanks!

MaGeekLab

Hi ezmacc

You can create your own styles to show your photo galleries and you could use css svg filters to do it.

I’m hope this helps you

MaGeekLab

Hello envatoJRM, did you follow the documentation steps? It seems that client ID is invalid, please check that’s exactly the same from the Instagram site ( Be sure there’s no white spaces before or after, thats a common mistake!)

Thanks!

Hi,

how can I delete the “See more” link in visual composer? I don`t use shortcode like “pagination”. Is there an easier way?

Kind regards and thx in advance, Timmy

MaGeekLab

Hello timmyhack! The Visual Composer elements include a checkbox to hide pagination, do you have it checked? Thanks!

Marciola Purchased

Love the plugin so far! Just have one quick question. You have provided short codes but those do not work within the theme files. I would like to add the current photos of the auth user into the footer.php.

How would I go about doing this? The shortcodes won’t work.

Thank you so much.

MaGeekLab

Hello Marciola!

You could try with the do_shortcode function, for example, open the footer.php file of your theme and place this code where you want the gallery

<?php echo do_shortcode(‘[mgl_instagram_gallery … ]’); ?>

Replace the shortcode with yours, this should do the trick :)

Hope it helps!

Hey super excited to purchase this plugin. BUT I have 2 major question:

Question 1: I have multiple pages and I need to display images/videos from one IG user account but a different hashtag per page.

For example: user: justbgraphic page 1: #JBGMarchbreak page 2:#JBGDownsview etc.

Questions 2: Can we display both pictures and videos in 1 gallery. Each page will filter the hashtag, but pull both pics and vids? Is t his possible?

Cheers,

MaGeekLab

Hello kayodebrown416, did you set the cache parameter? The load time isn’t normal, the only moment when the plugin could slow down a little the page is when is pulling for new photos, so please set the cache value to for example 3600 seconds (one hour) or 7200 seconds (two hours). Thanks!

Default-user

Got it thanks. but now its displaying correctly. I just DM you the link.

MaGeekLab

Hello! Just answered, I think the shortcode is wrapped in tags, just remove them and it will look fine! Thanks!

I just uploaded your plugin and got it authorized, but I’m getting code like this (with some of my pics) ...

[1] => stdClass Object
                      (
                          [created_time] => 1423106669
                          [text] => Not until his junior year, @annahbackstrom.
                          [from] => stdClass Object

What’s going on?

MaGeekLab

Hello Kalimzizzou, I think you have the shortcode debug mode enabled, please check the shortcode and remove dev=”true” from it!

Thanks!

Default-user

How would I go about removing dev=”true” from the shortcode? And, do this solution apply to me if I’m using visual composer? Just making sure we’re on the same page.

MaGeekLab

Hello Kalimizzou, yes sorry this is an error we found in the plugin, we’re fixing it for the next update, currently the best option is to change to Visual Composer to Edit mode and search for the Instagram shortcode in plain text and remove the dev=”true” parameter, this will fix it

Thanks!

I have looked in the download folder and their isn’t a file called video.js.map anywhere.

Can you help please. Thanks, James

Hello,

Presale question.

is it possible to display individual photos like they do in this article? http://www.vancitybuzz.com/2015/03/best-vancouver-instagram-photos-2nd-ed/

Thanks

MaGeekLab

Hello Uptownescape, Our plugin does something similar but not like that, as we print galleries from an user, hashtag or location and you could limit it to 1 photo, but you can’t print an specific photo by it’s id or url

Hope it helps!

Hello, i discover how to fix by my self. So now, o would like to know why i put to apear 100 pictures and the app just give me 33. Could you please help me?

MaGeekLab

Hello oscanecos, sorry the Instagram API has a limit of photos you can “ask” for every query, the limit is, as you have seen 33, I suppose they do it to avoid an overload

Thanks!

Are there any updates coming? It’s been 2 months since my last comment in which you told all of us that you know that the current version is having issues with the latest version of visual composer. have to admit that i’m a little concerned. love the plugin but it seems that if you know there is an issue that we would have seen some sort of update by now. thanks for all you do, love the plugin, just wish it worked correctly with VC. any insight on an update/fix?

MaGeekLab

Hello paycom, Thanks for the comment! Yes the update is coming and again sorry for the delay, is taking too much long as we’ve recoded all the plugin from the start to fix a lot of issues with the connection with the Instagram API, also with VC as you say and some more.

At this point we are considering in releasing a little update just with the VC fix so the wait is quieter for our customers

Thanks again for the wait!

Thank You for the Quick response. Glad to hear that your working on it. I understand that this stuff takes time and your trying to bridge multiple platforms. Looking forward to the updates seeing this plugin evolve over time.

Hi! You sell the plugin with the template? I would like a template. Russian language support?

MaGeekLab

Hello chingishovalyg,

What do you mean template? The page template?

The plugin is translation ready but not translated to russian, you can do it yourself :)

Hope it helps!

Default-user

Well, the pattern which is a demo site. I want to make a site of photos

ldlmedia Purchased

Hi, I purchased the plugin and I would like to understand how to choose the skin. Do you have a page of exaple on how to use the different parameters?

Is it possible to show a feed of geolocated tags?

Let’s say I want to show pictures tagged #goodweather taken in a radius of 1km around the lat-long 123-345 how do you translate that in shortcode?

Thank you

MaGeekLab

Hello Idlmedia, when setting the shortcode just add the skin parameter like:

[mgl_instagram_user username=”mageeklab” skin=”elegant”]

You have a full list of all the skin names inside the documentation or on the plugin’s configuration page

For location, you can show photos from a location ID, but first you need to know what it is, we’ve included a shortcode that print locations near the lat/lng you set, from there you can get the ID and print photos from that location. The problem is you can’t get photos from a location or a tag not both at the same time

Hope it helps!

Thanks!

cool, thank you!

Hi, your plugin looks great and we are about to purchase. But before we do, just one question: Can we embed photo’s AND video’s on one page? With other words, can we have 1 user photo shortcode and 1 user video shortcode on the same page? Thanks.

Cheers, Carsten

twelvetrains

I already found the setting “Include videos in the gallery (true/false)”. So I guess the answer to my question is yes. :)

We have a different question: Is it possible to change the way the lightbox works? Now the images scroll down but we would like them to just fade in when clicking on an image. Thanks.

MaGeekLab

Hello twelvetrains, you’re right, you can have videos & images on the same gallery, what you can’t have is a gallery of only videos :)

For the lightbox we have an option to disable the javascript so you could add yours, but if you want to put videos it would be dificuld as you would need to handle the ajax side, if you only want to change the enter effect it is done by css, so you could just overwrite the styles !

Hope I made it clear for you, thanks!

Hi there! Presale question:

Is it possible to insert images in some sort of carousel? Let’s say I want to display the 4 latest images from a user and have the option to click right/left going to see more images from the same user?

I wonder if it’s possible to do that with Visual Composer?

Thanks!! Andreas
