Excellent plugin – Hugely customizable, fast & robust

10/10. No BS or ‚Upgrade to Pro‘ trickery. Just a damn good plugin that does what it says and has a litany of customizable options via a decent CSS base stylesheet. Unlike the other sliders etc, actually parses the text/caption too. Well done guys and props for including so much functionality on a freeware basis. Appreciated!

Great plugin!

I needed a plugin that allowed me to show my most recent Instagram pic along with the caption that I included when I posted it to Instagram. Most of the pics I post to Instagram make NO sense unless I include a caption.

If I can’t include the caption along with the image, it’s pointless for me to put the image on my site.

I first installed another, more popular Instagram plugin that supposedly supported including the caption. Come to find out, including the caption was a „premium“ feature. I uninstalled that plugin and tried this one. Not only does it support including captions, it gives you the ability to insert Instagram images with either a widget or a shortcode. You can also only show images that have a specific hashtag if that’s something you want to do.

I can’t think of a reason why anyone would want to use another Instagram plugin.
