Blogger: Instagram Feed for specific templates

Please note: this article is only for our Willow, Galvani, Kensington and Style & Light templates for Blogger/Blogspot.

Step 1 – Get your User ID

You can install the main Instagram feed for your template by going to this page and logging in to your Instagram account. Now copy the User ID number which is displayed. (NOT the Access Token).

Step 2 – Copy the User ID to your blog

Now go back to your blog’s dashboard, then go to the Layout section:

In the gadgets that are available, you should find one called “Instagram”. Click the “Edit” button in this gadget and a window should open:

Now paste the User ID which you copied earlier into the box. So the window should look like the example below:

Click save, and you’re done!

      Hi Kate, it looks like you’ve mixed up a few different versions of the Instagram feed there. Which feed would you like to display? Would you like to add one across the footer? If so, you can do that on this page.

    I can’t seem to get this to work for me! I want to add an Instagram bar at the bottom of my blog like on the Holly & Weave preview, is this how I do it?

    Im looking into purchasing the Fleur de Marseille blossom theme but was wondering if I could add an instagram slider bar at the bottom?
    Thanks in advance for any advice 🙂

    I have done that a few times now and the Instagram gadget just appears on my blog page as the User ID number not the Instagram images themselves. I don’t know what to try to fix it. Any ideas? I’ve removed it for now, but it makes the template look clumsy as there is nothing between my posts slider and the first post which means the slider matches the image immediately below it every four rotations. The Instagram feed is one of the reasons I went for Galvani.

      Hi Victoria, I think it might be best if you re-install the template. I’ve sent the latest version to your email address now. This will allow you to download a fresh copy of the template and installation guide. Let me know if that fixes it.

        Hi Phil,

        I am having the same problem!
        Ive tried reinstalling the template but no luck… help?!

          Hi Kim, I think you can fix the issue on your site by re-installing a fresh copy of the template. I’ve resent your order to you now so that you can download a new copy and upload this to your Blogger account.

            Hi Phil,
            Re-tried downloading the new file, then going backup/restore on the theme and uploading the new version. Did all the steps of the instagram main feed tutorial and still it is just showing the user id number rather than the images. Could it be something on the Instagram not allowing it? Eg security reasons?
