Hi,

Nice theme.

just small questions, In your user gallery feature, - is that mean that we can grab a photos from somebody instagram? - and show it as our feed? (should the user/somebody need to login first on my word-press/API/authentication menu too?)

IF YES,

1. Beside cache/stream, can I store the photos in my library (faster loading time)

2. I would like to insert the gallery in my posts, can set the limitation? Let’s say I want to grab only 5 selected photos from selected user name/profile.

3. I hope the above questions will accommodated (settled) in your visual composer features too

Kindly need your advise

Thanks

Hi,

I’m very sad right now, I purchased CloudFlare PRO plan, Since your plugin is all about images, then I hope it will boost my site. But the result is very deadly, my site is slower 2x than ever (GTMatrix), it’s weird … Based on GTMetrix and webpage test, I got full A but the speed said that my site is 2x slower

I’m activated the railgun, lazy load, rocket load, w3, and image polish

Kindly need your advise, and

Sorry if I’m crying right now (I lost money for make my site 2x slower than ever)

Thanks

Hi,

Yesterday I tried to test the benefit of CloudFlare pro (cache is cleared), and in fact the result is <1s, but that number is only work for UI and text. I have MEGA TONS of images and opportunity (thanks to your plugin).

Under the lazy load feature, the text and UI loaded very fast but the IMAGES WOULD NOT SHOW until you access/scroll down the page (for some mobile Internet provider like I use, after all text/contents are loaded, then the image caching is stopped).

Guess what? You’re right, the result is NO pictures are loaded, just text and title (forget the PC, I want to focusing my effort on mobile market)

My business niche is about images and images, what’s the point of to have fast Website in text and rest as the miss universe BUT NOT the images

Kindly need your advise

Sorry for the inconvenienced, I just so emotional this morning because of this issue (there is a tears also right now)

Thanks

Hello hellotiko, As you can see if you take a look at “src” attribute from “img” tags, images are loaded directly from Instagram servers so CloudFlare could’nt improve the load. They are usually quite fast. Our plugin has cache but only to get the instagram server request, not to instagram images. (Instagram plugin doesn’t save images on your server)

Can you give us your web url and a user and password to see what’s happening? (you can send it to hello@mageeklab.com)

Thanks!

Hi I am using the Instagram plugin to retrieve specific hash tags. Is there anyway the code can be modified to ban any user who submits inappropriate content using the defined hash tag? It works brilliantly for our application but my client is just concerned about this particular issue.

Many thanks Mike

MaGeekLab

Hello Mike, Sorry this can’t be done since the Instagram API doesn’t let’s us add a “blacklist” to the queried media, in that cases we recommend to change the tag gallery with a liked gallery, that way only the photos liked by the user will appear on the site

Hope it helps! Thanks

Hi guys, any idea what this means?

Allow url fopen could not be enabled

I get it on the Instagram Application tab under settings > Instagram Gallery

MaGeekLab

Hello social_tap, that means that the plugin is trying to enable allow_url_fopen from your php configuration but it’s not able, in that case we suggest you contact your hosting provider to enable it :) Thanks!

Will this plugin show photos / videos uploaded through buddypress activity stream?

MaGeekLab

Hello PixelFuel, no sorry we haven’t made the plugin compatible with buddypress right now. Thanks!

Hi there,

I have just purchased this plugin and am now trying to customize it for my site. I am now using the gallery in the widget. However, I am getting two errors.

Warning: file_get_contents(https://api.instagram.com/v1/users/search?q=&access_token=21669736.7cbc762.4b13c89534bc40569bfe7c7c8371362a) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: HTTP request failed!

How do I fix this?

Thanks in advance.

I managed to fix this.

But I have another question: how do I make the widget completely full-width in the footer?

MaGeekLab

Hello IYL27, what do you mean completely full width? If you need more rows for the gallery you can just update the css to add more rows capability, if you need more help please send me an screenshot to hello@mageeklab.com. Thanks!

Hello,

I purchased your plugin a while back and i’ve recently switched to SSL and your plug in is pulling photos from a non https address. is there any way to fix this so all connects are made through SSL?

MaGeekLab

Helllo blkdapparel,

Instagram not provide a SSL connection to get their images and so we can’t do anything. Commonly SSL connections are used for secure and private information transmission (like login or credit card transactions). Instagram images are public so everybody can access to them and SSL connection is not necessary ;)

I hope I’ve helped you

Regards!

Default-user

No worries I’ve found an free plug in that provides the SSL images from instagram. Thank you.

I have pre-sale questions. In demo page, lightbox does not appear in center on my iphone5s Is there a way to place center? Second, multi-user feed is possible? Third, infinite load more is possible? Four, remaining photos already loaded before click the load more button?(like ‘instagram feed’ plugin) Thank you.

MaGeekLab

Hello rise08 1. This plugin is responsive and run on every browser (mobile included) if you found this bug on iphone5s, we will fix it as soon as possible ;). Also you can add some styles to customize it as you want.

2. Instagram only allows to show the looged user feed.

3 & 4. We will add this features in next updates but is not possible right now

I hope I’ve helped you

Regards!

Default-user

Thanks for quick answer. :) 2.What are you mean ‘logged’? I mean mix many user photos on one feed. Three more questions. 1.Can I add many different instagram feeds on many pages? 2. How many access tokens supported? 3. How many images you can fetch in one feed? Thank you

MaGeekLab

Hello rise08

You can show one single photo gallery from one user per shortcode ( in next updates you will be able to show photo galleries mixing photos from different instagram users).

In the actual version, the plugin only supports one access token so you can show the feed of the user which you used to authorize the instagram app on your wordpress admin (you can show this feed as many times and as many places as you want with a shortcode)

You can show as many images as you want in each gallery with no limits

Regards!

The popup of the image/video is not longer working. Any ideas why?

MaGeekLab

Hello socialops

Could you send me your web URL and give me an user and password to take a look to see what’s happening?

Thanks!

Souvraya Purchased

Hi, Would it be possible to use this on Woocommerce product pages, using different hashtags for each product?

Thank you!

MaGeekLab

Hello Souvraya

Of course you can use it :) The plugin uses shortcodes to show galleries. You can show the photo gallery adding the shortcode into the woocommerce product description like any other

I hope I’ve helped you

Yeah, I realised that after i commented and purchased right away – thank you :).

does this plugin makes your website slow?

Daan

MaGeekLab

Hello djragbourn

Of course it doesn’t ;) This plugin only adds a little HTML code to show images and they are loaded from Instagram servers in parallel while your web loads

Hey, litle question. Id like to know if the photo galleries can be shown like this http://vivalajean.attackcity.com on mobile

Sorry for my english

MaGeekLab

Hello AttackCityMedia

With our plugin you can choose among different templates and also you can add your own CSS styles to change its appearance. ;)

I hope I have helped you!

Regards!

Hi! I purcased this because of the ability to show geolocated images. I have generated a list and picked a spot, but it is to spesific, There is several places just meter betweens. It does not cover a big enough area. Is is possible to have i cover 500 meters instead of just 2 meters?

MaGeekLab

Hello stevenilsen, Yes the location list it’s a bit confusing because Instagram integrates it’s place ID with Facebook places and Foursquare places, so most of the time a location will be duplicated, I suggest you to try a search for “bigger” location and see which one users use most! You can do that from the Instagram App :) Hope it helps!

Default-user

Well, That did not help at all.. =( There is not any bigger locations, it all grids it up to small pieces only meters apart. Is it possible for you to include the radius option instead of choosing a point with an ID?

MaGeekLab

Hello again! No sorry, we would love to do that, but right now Instagram only allows to pull photos by a location ID, not with lat & long, hope they update the api so we can add this feature, thanks!

Hey there,

is the plugin able to set different “streams” of instagram photos, each one with a single hashtag?

So for instance, in the homepage i’ll add a slider with #ciao and on the portfolio page i’ll add another slider with #wow.

Is this possible? Is there any limitation in the number of different instagram slider/gallery that can be used?

tnx, Matteo

Is it possible?

MaGeekLab

Hello Matteo, yes, of course! You can have as much different galleries as you want, even in the same page, the only limitation is that you can only use one hashtag for each. Hope it helps!

Hi there,

just bought the plugin but i’m depressed on how the pagination works… it reloads the page and considering that the gallery is at the bottom of the page, the result is pretty bad in terms of user experience.

Second point. How can i avoid the over effect with those messy info?

Third point. Is there a way to have a slider with 1 big photo instead of a grid?

tnx, M.

MaGeekLab

Hello playgreg

I am sorry to hear that. For next updates we are working on a ajax pagination.

To avoid over effect you can set the basic skin for the gallery ( You can set the skin parameter in the shortcode )

Right now you can show a gallery with 1 photo but if you want a slider you will need to add it apart

Regards!

type88 Purchased

Bug or no bug:

I am trying to display two galleries on one page. The first is for userA, which is the user that created the app to authorize the plugin. The second is for userB, which is just another user.

I add them both by username, into two different VC rows. The rendered page shows duplicate galleries, both from userA.

Changing the settings for userB to use the ID fixes the problem.

MaGeekLab

Hello type88, by default in the plugin if no username or user id is provided to the shortcode it will fallback to the current auth user, are you sure there is no typo or something like this? In our demo we provide several different user galleries and all seem to work, but we will take a look to it

Thanks!
