1. Extension Installation
•
•
•
Extract the zip folder and upload our extension to root of your Magento 2 directory via FTP.
Login to your SSH and run below commands step by step:
o php bin/magento setup:upgrade
o php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
o php bin/magento cache:flush
That’s it.
2. Configuration
For configuring the extension, login to Magento 2, move to Stores → Configuration →
Instagram where you can find various settings to enable the extension.
•
•
•
Instagram: Enable or disable Instagram extension from here.
Instagram Profile User Name: Add your profile user name to show in image popup.
Instagram User Access Token: Enter your access token. You can get it from
https://www.instagram.com/developer/authentication/ following the steps
mentioned.
Method to receive the access token:
Reach out to authorization URL:
▪
Not logged in user will be asked to log in.
▪
The user will be asked to grant application access to his Instagram data.
The server will redirect the user in one of two ways:
•
•
▪
Server-side flow (recommended): Redirect the user to desired URL. Take the
provided code parameter and exchange it for an access token by posting the code to
access token URL.
▪
Implicit flow: Instead of handling a code, include the access token as a fragment (#)
in the URL. Although the method being less secure, it allows applications without any
server component to receive an access token.
Fetch Instagram Images Using: Select option to fetch Instagram images.
o My User Name: You can use your own user name added under “Instagram
Profile User Name” to fetch images.
o Hashtags: Enter comma separated hashtags to fetch Instagram images.
Instagram Image Popup View: Select Instagram popup view to show in frontend.
o Caption with Hyperlink: Add multiple captions with link to redirect users
when they click captions from popup.
o Product Feed: Add multiple product SKUs to fit with the products in image. On
