Instagram is very popular nowadays. However, it is currently limited to mobile devices. So what do you do when you want to publish your instagram photos to your WordPress blog, or view the images online? Here’s the list of best WordPress instagram plugins available:
Instagrate to WordPress
Whenever you use Instagram to take pictures, the new picture you just captured will be published as a new blog post. This plugin will literally save you a lot of time in publishing images online. You don’t need to take the image from your mobile device, insert it into a blog post, and then publish it. This plugin makes the whole process automatic for you.
If you don’t want all of the Instagram images you take end up being published as a blog post, you can configure the plugin settings to set the posts as draft instead of publishing them automatically.
insta.SHOW is a WordPress instagram plugin which allows you to display a slideshow of the images you have in your Instagram account. You’ll need the login information of your Instagram account to display your images. There are configuration options in the settings of the plugin which will let you choose how many images to display, the text size, as well as the size of the images to be displayed. You can add the shortcode [instagram] anywhere you want the slideshow to be added.
Instapress is a full featured Instagram plugin for WordPress. Instapress offers plenty of different options for you to integrate your Instagram images to your WordPress site. You can add the images as a widget, in a post, or as part of your WordPress template. Instapress allows you to customize your widgets and shortcodes to your needs. In addition, Instapress allows you to display feeds from other people, popular feeds – not just the Instagram images from your account.
If you have your Instagram images displayed in a blog post as a gallery, viewers can click on the images and enlarge them. This is particularly great when displaying pictures from an event.
