We implemented your plugin on our site but are noticing an issue. We set it up to show 8 columns and 8 images to display in just one row. We implemented CSS custom chode change to display an 8 column width. But for some reason we have over 8 photos in our new instagram but it is only showing 5 of them. Settings in the widget are 8 and 8. Any suggestions?

Hello pixelfader, I see your gallery and it’s one row with 8 photos, it’s that what you wanted? Thanks!

Default-user

yea it wasn’t showing all 8 photos for several hours, just blank space.

MaGeekLab

Thats weird, are you using some cache plugin in your site? Thanks!

Hi there A pre-purchase question. My case is that I want to display Instagram photos based on Instagram hashtags, but my client would like to approve the photos before they’re published. Is that possible? Or is it possible to remove/hide photos?

The client is afraid that some photos might be inappropriate as this is a website for youth people.

Thanks!

MaGeekLab

Hello Haladyn, in that case the best option is to use the “Liked Gallery”, in that, only the photos you “like” are displayed, so you have full control of them

Do you think this is a good solution for your client?

Thanks!

Hello I want to solve two tasks.

Well.

1. In the instagram gallery in my site on some pictures don’t show user id. I don’t know why)

Link to site http://www.royalsochi.rest/

Link to video example http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jg3LkD05TZk&feature=youtu.be

2. I want to the instagram gallery if thumbnail is video on thumbnail show video icon. How made in istagram.

MaGeekLab

Hello izobretatel88, 1) Yes sometimes the Instagram Api don’t get the username, we still don’t know why, but we check it exists before is printed because it will throw an error if not

2) If you want to add a icon when is a video check the code I send you last week, you will see that before the loop starts theres a if condition that checks if video is true/false, there you can define an icon that can be used later in the loop :)

Hope it helps!

izobretatel88

ok) Thanks!

We had the plugin working just fine on our website but now it’s throwing an error. It’s not a server issue, we’ve contacted the people who host our site and they said it’s some sort of issue with the API.

We reset the app’s secret but that didn’t do anything. We re-pasted the OAuth redirect_uri and it didn’t help. The error we are receiving is this:

Warning: file_get_contents(https://api.instagram.com/v1/tags/hashtagweused/media/recent?access_token=533018965.45c3994.30b9fe1561804973810beab9a82a9da8): failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 400 BAD REQUEST in directory/wp-content/plugins/mgl-instagram-gallery/mgl_instagram_functions.php on line 199 Error: Cannot retrive photos from Instagram, is allow_url_fopen eneabled in your server?

We are unable to change the access token so what do you think the issue is?

Default-user

Hello,

Thanks for your previous help! That solved the issue, but now we are getting a new issue with session_start();

Warning: session_start(): open(/tmp/sess_534ea80ce38268b9bdd1bcfee3e715b2, O_RDWR) failed: Permission denied (13) in /wp-content/plugins/mgl-instagram-gallery/index.php on line 109

Hello again,

We seemed to have solved the issue. Cache issue on our end.

Thanks!

MaGeekLab

Hello again, Happy to know that! Just tell me if you have any more issues

Thanks!

Can you have the images and videos link to the instagram page where people can leave comments or like the image/vid?

Thanks Sol

MaGeekLab

Hello solomfb, yes, if you add direct_link=”true” to the shortcode, images will link directly to that page :)

Hope it helps!

I think this may be my go-to instagram-er.

Thanks again.

MaGeekLab

Awesome to hear that! Hope you enjoy the plugin!

I need to have some details that would be great if I can help, I use only for p Lugín #hashtag

1. I need to ”#hashtag” mode order of highest number of likes to lowest

2. leaving visible the numbers of likes and comments on any style that leaves visible by default. it is always in the over.

3. show “All Photos” tag in a single page or enable the option to return to paged, since I can not return to a previous page.

4. see more than 20 photos that use “number =” 30 ”,” 20 but only shows me photos.

I hope you can help me and thank you.

MaGeekLab

Hello pikazoumx, Sorry we can’t reach points 1,3,4 as Instagram API doesn’t allow it, for the first, we can only order them by the date published, the third, the API only gives us the next_id to load, not the previous, the fourth, we’ve tried too, but it seems the max photos you can load as a time are 20-24 each, even if you ask for more.

For the second point, are you familiar with css? If you are with a little modification you can show it always, I can help you with that

Hope it helps!

Default-user

plis helpme in to point 2

MaGeekLab

Sure, which of the skins you want to use? Thanks!

Hi,

Presale question: Your caching system, does it cache only for that user on that computer or caches for everyone who visits that page again.

thanks,

MaGeekLab

Hello yes, the gallery caches all the info inside the gallery, for images for example only stores the url, and they are loaded directly from Instagram Servers

The infinite scroll is something many people has asked us, we are working on it hope we can add it in the future!

Thanks!

Default-user

Ah I see, in terms of infinite scroll…I think you are better of by giving the user the load more button…once clicked more images load, top images stay in place etc etc. Making the user in charge is what’s important.

MaGeekLab

Ok thanks, we keep in mind all the ideas users ask us, so we will see where it get us at the end! :)

I’d like to add your plugin to my template files so that when my users enter in their username via custom content type manager forms it will populate on their individual pages.

I have the code in there and it’s currently working with instapress, but when I insert your shortcode and add the var it’s not displaying the proper username. For some reason it’s displaying my personal instagram, I’m guessing because I’ve setup the app and it’s using my ID.

I’ve tried the basic code… <?php echo do_shortcode("[shortcode]"); ?> ... as well, and it’s not working either.

Any info on why or how to insert this into the template files?

Thanks Sol

hello in the field of written comments on instagram, I enter a emoticons. The text that I write after emoticons becomes unreadable but writes these symbols: ??”|’?cH??\?X[?X\??H?X\??T?H?ZH?L??^\?[?\?Y????Y??Y?T?[H??[?YH??[H?\?[????\\??\?Y? Why?

MaGeekLab

Hello marchino, Can you show me an example of what do you mean? Thanks!

MaGeekLab

Hello again! Can you check if the shortcode is wrapped in pre tags or similar? Also can you try to set video=”false” inside the shortcode attributes? Thanks!

I am getting this:

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

MaGeekLab

Hello usuals2009, this error is telling than the “Redirect URI” of your Instagram App does not match the one in the website, please check they are exactly the same (beware of white spaces at the beggining and the end!) Thanks!

Hello, If I use the #Hashtag feature. Can I “Block” some Instagram-profiles if the hashtag is miss used from a specific user? Ex. If I use the plugin for viewing boats for example, and some users use the hashtag I’ve selected but the image is viewing a car… Cheers!

MaGeekLab

Hello Efterflyget, In this cases we recommend to create a “Liked Gallery” so only the liked photos by the user will be displayed on it, it’s the best solution we have right now as Instagram currently doesn’t allow to “block” ids from especific users. Thanks!

Hello, I’m pretty sure I know the answer to this but I want to confirm before purchasing.

Will the plugin only allow one tag, or one tag per gallery?

For instance on a single page I might add a gallery for #food and a gallery for #sports and a third for #fashion. The demo site appears to suggest that this plugin will do that out of the box. Is that correct?

Default-user

Really slick looking plugin by the way. :)

MaGeekLab

Hello Isethhill, You are right! You can set a different tag for each gallery, also you can have a different gallery from any user with the plugin

Hope it helps!

Hey there,

I’ve activated the plugin, and have entered the client id and client secret but am having no luck with the plugin—I’m getting an error message saying that I have the wrong client id… but I’m literally copy and pasting it directly from instagram.

Please help! Thanks

MaGeekLab

Hello JSGD, Please make sure you don’t have any whitespaces before or after the keys, most of the times this is the error! If you try this and still can’t authorize the account send me your wp login and Instagram user account and I’ll try to authorize myself

Thanks!

Still running into the same issue, with zero whitespaces. Any ideas? Thx!

MaGeekLab

Hello JSGD, in that case please send me an user to your site and your instagram account credentials to hello@mageeklab.com and I’ll try to authorize the app for you to see what happens.

Thanks!

Hello,

I authorized the plugin to Instagram and am in the widget in my sidebar. I keep getting an error message: “You need to setup a location_id!”

I have no idea what a location id is or where to find it. I’ve checked the Documentation and it still doesn’t make sense. Can you please tell me what it is and where to find it in very simple terms? :)

Thank you!

MaGeekLab

Hello goldiebrown78, You can change the number of columns in the gallery, more columns, the images will get smaller, if you need a fixed size you can also do it with some custom css! Hope it helps!

goldiebrown78

Thank you! I think I’ll have to do some CSS then! :)

MaGeekLab

Perfect, if you have any problem just let me know! Thanks!

hey there. the plugin worked great out of no where it gave me this error Error: Cannot retrive photos from Instagram, file_get_contents() functions failed

what haapend ?

Hello muni22, This seems to be something with your server, does the error persist or keeps showing? Thanks!

ereg-se Purchased

We are using your plugin since over a year. But last weeks we only get this error: “Error: Cannot retrive photos from Instagram, is allow_url_fopen eneabled in your server?” We are trying to show by the tag #äuc. If I change it to a tag without the ä it works fine. If I go to the api-url directly in browser it also works fine. Any idea how to get it working again? Plugin version: 1.1.1) URL: http://www.alvdalen.com/media/instagram/

Updated to latest version didn’t help. Works fine when not using the letter ä.

MaGeekLab

Hello ereg-se, In that case, could you provide a username & password to hello@mageeklab.com? We’ll take a look right now.

So far everything seems to be working great, except when first loading a page using the widget. I have a 3×3 grid (9total) images displaying in a side bar, but when the page is first loaded, all the images are full size and stacked vertically. When you F5 or refresh the page, it returns to the grid. Why must a refresh happen in order for it to retain the proper configuration?

MaGeekLab

Hello headmatik, can you send me a link to your site so I can check? The styles of the plugin are loaded on the footer of the site and could be something that slows down it

Thanks!

Hi MaGeekLab. I emailed you the URL to check out. Also, is the CSS editable to remove the padding around each thumbnail? I’d like to make the thumbs seamless with no gap. Thank you in advance.

MaGeekLab

Hello headmatik, just answered your email, please check :)

nitefader Purchased

Hey, can you provide me with code I can use to automatically find a place’s location ID.

I see you already have a shortcode to find various location ids… very cumbersome task! lol

I already have Place name, lat, long… Can the plugin find the best match for me like ==> http://websta.me/tools?location=387677

MaGeekLab

Hello nitefader, yes the location shortcode it’s a little bit confusing but it’s the only way because right now the Instagram API only allows you to setup a location gallery with it’s ID, you can’t search photos by lat/long, hope they made it in the future! Thanks!
