yep, thats right. you can post Instagram posts directly on EB. have had a few people asking so i figured id post this.

you may not have noticed, but theres a new Instagram bracket button on top of the text dialog box.

heres how it works..

example Instagram URL.. http://instagram.com/p/gEAbmvq-4m/

code for posting this instagram on EB..

Code: Select all

[instagram]gEAbmvq-4m[/instagram]
basically, you copy the portion in the url after the instagram.com/p/ and past it in the Instagram bracket.



enjoy.

I can't figure it out. All the images on Instagram that I right click on and go to properties to get the URL address all just come up as "http://instagram.com/#" and the actual number is not shown just the # sign is shown.

you need to click on the persons Instagram profile and then click on the entry. that should give you the URL.

Its definitely possible to get a button that works with the vids but every attempt I've tried has failed. I've messaged someone who runs another forum and has a working way of doing this to ask them how they've done it. Not given up yet.
