<img src="{{ $instagramPhoto->getLowResolutionUrl() }}" width="{{ $instagramPhoto->getLowResolutionWidth() }}" height="{{ $instagramPhoto->getLowResolutionHeight() }}">

<img src="{{ $instagramPhoto->getStandardResolutionUrl() }}" width="{{ $instagramPhoto->getStandardResolutionWidth() }}" height="{{ $instagramPhoto->getStandardResolutionHeight() }}">

Instagram Photos Search

Note that this only searches the locally stored InstagramPhoto entities, it does NOT make a call to the Instagram Api

Provides endpoint /instagram/photosearch, which takes the following params:

  1. search - search string, matches against caption, username, tags, and locationName fields
  2. perPage - number of records per page to send in the results
  3. offset - the first record to start with (used for pagination)

Results are delivered to _views/instagram_search_results.tpl, if defined in your theme, or a default internal view is used.


<div id="nav">
   <div class="left-nav"><a href="{{ $prevPageUrl }}">Previous</a></div>
   <div class="center-nav"><span>found {{ $instagramPhotoCount }} results</span></div>
   <div class="right-nav"><a href="{{ $nextPageUrl }}">Next</a></div>
<br class="clear">

<ul id="photo-results-container">
{{ foreach $instagramPhotos as $photo }}
