How to display Instagram images by location in InstaShow

Although our plugins are excellent and functional as they are, we love implementing new features and making them do even more! Another thing that we love is making our customers happy. And as many of you have requested the location source function, here it is finally!

Starting with the release of our latest update from December 12, 2016 InstaShow now supports a new and very much requested type of source – Instagram location. The Location source allows you to display images linked to a certain location. Cities, places to go, nature spots – you can now feature all of these in your Instagram feed.

How to get the update?

Those of you who use WordPress or jQuery versions of InstaShow need to update InstaShow to the recent version. Download it from https://codecanyon.net/downloads. Our customers from Shopify, Weebly, Wix and Lightspeed marketplaces don’t need to do anything, as the update will be automatically installed.

How to use the location source?

To show an image by location, you need to set the URL address of the location from Instagram as the feed’s source. It is easy to do, but we’ve made up a short tutorial, just in case you have any questions.

  1. Open instagram.com and login to your account, if necessary.
  2. Enter the location you need into the search field:

You can set as many locations as you need, and combine them with any other type of Instagram sources that InstaShow supports! Have a great user experience with InstaShow, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to open a ticket at our Support Center at https://elfsight.ticksy.com!
