Hi guys,

We’re trying to embed this into our website and a dialogue box comes up to say “The access_token provided is invalid”.

We’ve tried everything included in our zip file, but it doesn’t appear to be working. I seem to need a numeric UserID and an Access token. I’ve tried using the “Item ID” and the “Item Purchase Code” from your attachments to no avail.

Could you please get back to me ASAP? This development is again deadline.

Thank you! :)


I will be happy to assist you . Please get your token using my tool below. This will do the trick!

Oh thank you! Just saw this one!

Cheers! :)

Hi, I bought this fantastic plugin. I followed the Usage documentation, but I still not watching my example gallery on the website. I’m in sandbox mode now, and the instagram documentation tell I can see maximum 20 posts… and I have 1 only… Where is the wrong? I have to put my Licence Code somewhere in the code? Thanks in advance Best regards Antonio

Hi, where did you get your accesstoken?

Hi, I sent the link (you posted here in this support) to the customer, and he replied me the codes (UserId + AccessToken). Then I put the codes into the plugin.

Hi, if you are using the link I provided, you should not have any issues with scope. Have them put in the access token and send me a link to the error. :)

I have recently purchased this item and configured it for a web page im working on. I have covered all the basic options and wanted to know how to change the other options that are shown in the demo, mainly the “choose sizes” options that allow the gird columns and rows to be changed. (i am displaying only ne image, the latest, for a user and need a single column grid container to maintain my layout.

Hi, I will be happy to assist you. Can you send me a link to your site so I can take a look?

Hi guys,

I messaged you earlier this week regarding an issue – could I please get someone to reply to my query ASAP? Thanks.

Hi, thanks for reaching out. Please send me a message using the form on my profile page and I’ll be happy to expidite your support.



Our client has decided not to use this plugin as the layout is not mobile responsive in the sense that the images are tiny. They feel that it does not lend well to their site.

Will you be updating this product down the line to be mobile responsive rather than just showing small images?


No I didn’t mean it in a critical way – just being subjective :). I think it is universal in all the Instagram plugins available, whereas the Flickr plugins behave differently on smaller devices. The main issue our users have is the images are far too small on mobile (the overlay popup works well). What we are looking for is getting each image to fit the screen on mobile i.e. 1 per row (or at most 2 per row) rather than replicating the desktop view of 5 in a row.

P.s where is the form on your profile page? I can only seem to find the leave a message option which in turn re-directs to this comment page.

Edit: found it.

Hmm, strange. No worries, if you just put your email address in this post, I’ll reach out to you shortly and get you take care of! :)

When I add more than 1 instagram account id, nothing happens.

Example: userID : ‘2338102, 3417594672’,

Also when I use other user ID instead of mine, it doesn’t work either.

Please help. : )

Great question! So you would like the multiple accounts photos sort of shuffled in the same collection?

I need to see the pictures by upload date no matter who the user is, not rows of 20 pictures by user.

Can you send me a link so that I may take a look?

Hi – I’m getting a message :

‘the Client has not been approved to access this resource’ when trying to load images by a tag- I have tagged an image as a test and created the token for the user. Any help would be truly appreciated .

and … I used your token generator and boom – it worked. :)


I bought the plugin, the documentation says in step 5 “5. Activate the plugin.” but not where I have to put that information, where exactly I have to put this: $(’.element’).instagramElement({ mode : ‘user’, userID : ‘YOUR_NUMERIC_USERID’, accessToken : ‘YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN’, galleryMode: ‘classic’, video: true, showVideoControls: false }); (of course changing the data with the token info)


Thanks for reaching out. I’ll be happy to assist you with this. Would you like me to provide you with a complementary installation?


ok, please do that


Sounds good. Please send me a message using the form on my profile page and I’ll be happy to set you up!

how do i disable fancybox gallery when click? i want it to go directly to instagram page when click.


Thanks for reaching out. Great question! This is actually not currently a feature but if this is something you need, I’d be happy to provide you with a simple update to allow you to achieve this. Please send me a message using the form on my profile page and I’ll get that right over to you. :)


Instagram now has support for 16×9 images and not just square, but your plugin doesn’t… Any plans for that? I can see that other plugins support this. The edges of my images gets cut out with your plugin… Thanks for any help on this!


Yes, this plugin handles non square images using the default settings. This functions best since it keeps the grid perfect and prevents issues for users down the road with their galleries.

Based on a survey, this is the preferred method of handling non square images but if this is something you’d like, If would be very simple for me to provide you with a custom update. Let me know.



Hello, i couldn’t find the answers i needed in your questions forum. i could use help setting up my instagram feed …. my code…. <!doctype html>

<head> <meta charset=”UTF-8”> <title>Untitled Document</title><meta charset=”utf-8”> <meta name=”viewport” content=”width=device-width, initial-scale=1”> <link rel=”stylesheet” href=”../lib/videoplayer/css/style.css” media=”screen”> <link href=”../lib/fancybox2/source/jquery.fancybox.css” rel=”stylesheet”> <link href=”../instagramElement.css” rel=”stylesheet”> <link rel=”stylesheet” href=”https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.7/css/bootstrap.min.css”></head>

i am unfamiliar how to “Activate” the plugin, and where to input my Instagram username to read it.

any help would be amazing.

thank you for your time

Hi, I think it may be best if I just provide you with an installation. Can you send me your email address?

If that’s not an issue, then it’s amdeimling@gmail.com

Not at all! :)

The documentation is very poor! The plugin support mode, however, i don’t know how to use it. Eg: how i can get the locationID, How i can get the userID from Instagram? And how i can load multiuser?


I’m sorry you’re having issues getting started. You can get your userid and token using our generator tool below.

The former licince a bought a while ago, I could do it, this time I fail:-( can u pls. help me where is my mistake? All scripts are in the correct file and I checked the path = correct:-( Thanks Klaus

Hello, just bought the Instagram Element Jquery Plugin. I use it in multitag-mode, and if I set the limit in the configuration, the results are quite strange. I set the limit to 20, but there are many more.

Can it be that the limit is valid for each tag? This would be not good, because you could never control how many images in total are shown…


Thanks for reaching out. So the limit functionality is not designed for the multitag or multiuser modes. This is because those two modes are completely custom and don’t leverage the Instagram API feed the same way. If you could tell me what you’re trying to accomplish, I can definitely help you achieve it!



Hello, I try to control the amount of images displayed. At the moment I think there are too many. I try to limit it at 20 (from all tags combined)

Ok, please send me a message on my profile page so that I can provide you with a custom upgrade.


Hi, I bought this item. I want to use my own template. I just want a list of images of a certain tag. Do you supply a simpler version of this where I can include my own HTML template for the image stream? Thanks

No worries, I’ll be happy to simplify things for you to get started. Can you send me your email address by filling out the form on my profile page?

Hi, I got a problem when the image has differents heights size. It’s broken the galery. Can you help me?

Hi, I’ll be happy to assist you. Can you send me a link so that I may take a look?

hi there i am trying to request an access token for the instagram feed to be placed on my website, and the link on the help document is coming up with an error.

I have read through the instagram api support and it keeps saying to direct the user to the authorisation url. Unfortunately I do not know what the url is.

Please advise. Thank you.

ok i think i managed to get it working but one quick question how to i make it so that all images that load, are displayed as squares, and more of a grid?!

I’ve got it working and managed to make it a square grid format. Thanks

Hi, really? What did you end up doing?
