Installation

Setup

  1. Be sure that the module is in a folder instagramfeed/ on the root of the project.
  2. sake dev/build "flush=all", depending on your config you might have to do this via URI in the browser.
  3. Visit the Instagram developer page to register your application
  4. Go to the CMS settings and fill there your new generated Client ID as well as your user name ...
    • ... save the changes ...
    • ... and click on the Get Instagram User ID action - this will fetch the User ID by the given user name
  5. Create a page with the type InstagramFeedPage and fill the Post Limit field (if not filled, 5 is used as default)
  6. Call the page in the frontend - everyting should work now :) of course you can overwrite the very basic demo-template by creating a template called InstagramFeedPage in your theme directory

Features
