A common request from users of Amplify theme was to include support for Instagram photos on the sidebar. I’m happy to announce that support for Instagram is included with the next update which should roll out over the next couple of days.
Unlike other third party integeration apps (e.g. Twitter, Soundcloud) where you just need to enter your username, Instagram requires you to authorize Amplify Theme to have access to your photos.
So if you’d like to include your most recent Instagram photo on your sidebar, please follow these steps:
1. Head to this page to allow Amplify Theme to access your Instagram profile (you may need to log in to Instagram in order to do this).
2. You’ll be redirected to a page which will have your unique access token. Copy that and paste it into the “Instagram Access Token” field in your theme’s customize settings.
3. You’ll now have your latest photo + caption displayed on the sidebar in Amplify theme.
With theme updates, if you use custom html you will need to apply the theme again in order to get the update.
