Users with a private or public Instagram account (not business accounts) can add an Instagram feed to the photo gallery widget. The widget displays up to 100 images from your feed, and updates automatically when new posts are added. If an Instagram post has more than one image, only the first image of that post will display in the photo gallery widget.
New image updates may take up to 2 hours to display.
The Instagram widget only displays photos from accounts that are public.
To change the account, open the connected photo gallery, click Disconnect, and log in with the new account.
Only one Instagram account may be connected per site.
Clients do not need to give you user and password information. You can give clients Content editing permissions in order to log in to Instagram themselves.
To add Instagram content to the Photo Gallery widget:
- Add the Photo Gallery widget to your site. For more information, see Add Widgets.

If you receive an error logging in, go to Instagram.com in your browser. On the Profile tab, click the Settings icon and select Sign-Out, and then reconnect to the widget.
Image Captions display when hovering on an image. To display image captions, click the On or Off toggle on the Content tab of the Photo Gallery widget. The default is Off.
