Shortcodes in WordPress are little bits of code that let you do various things with little effort. With shortcodes, one single line is all it takes to add functionality to your website that would otherwise need a lot of coding. All our plugins generate WordPress shortcodes. You can use them the same way you’d use any other WordPress ones.
We try to keep the installation process of our plugins and apps as simple as possible, however, sometimes errors do occur. Some of our customers have complained about this error message they get when trying to install InstaLink WordPress plugin: The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found.
If new images don’t display in your widget right away, the most likely reason for this is plugin’s cache. Your widget takes the data from the cache which hasn’t expired yet. By default, our plugin queries Instagram every hour to grab new photos. The cache is required for better plugin performance.
Sometimes you insert the shortcode into the code, and instead of seeing the final result, you will see the shortcode itself as plain text. Why does this happen?This behavior means that you must have inserted the shortcode to the area that doesn’t support WordPress shortcodes.
If InstaLink doesn’t display on your WordPress website, these are the reasons you need to check off in the first place: Make sure that the page area you have added InstaLink shortcode to supports WordPress shortcodes.
For the best performance with InstaLink, use the latest version of a browser listed below. InstaLink runs in the following browsers: Google Chrome 49+; Firefox 47+; Safari 9+; Edge 13+; IE 11.
This behavior is related to the restrictions on the number of loaded pictures. We have a default restriction of 100 pictures, for better plugin performance. So the plugin is collecting specified images among the most recent 100 images from each of your sources.

Updating InstaLink is pretty easy, however, sometimes questions arise. That is why we are giving you this how-to. There are two ways to update InstaLink.
