Connect with Instagram account
To integrate your Instagram account, locate and input your Instagram Access Token.
Follow the link above to generate a token. Copy and paste your token back into the Instagram access token field in the theme editor.
The Instagram account used for the token is determined by the last login in the same browser. If you're generating a token for the wrong account, sign out of this account in the browser, then sign in with the correct account and generate a token again.
Troubleshooting Instagram feed issues
Access token issues
The token's access to the Instagram feed can be revoked automatically by the platform due to security concerns. To avoid this, limit the number of devices logged into the same account. If this occurs, return to the generator to create a new token for the feed.
Outdated theme version
There have been errors in past releases of the theme due to API changes. This has caused the feed to fail, even if a valid token is added. The best solution is to update to the latest version of the theme to amend this.
