Importing from Instagram Feeds

We’d like to note that Instagram doesn’t support RSS feeds by default, so we’ve had to find other third-party services to generate RSS feeds for pages.

IMPORTANT: First test your RSS feeds on  our demo sites to ensure that they perform to your standard. That being said, WP RSS Aggregator will be able to import RSS feeds available for Instagram following the steps below.

Finding the RSS Feed

  1. Log in to your Instagram account.
  2. Find your Instagram username or the username of an Instagram account that you’d like to add to the feed.
  3. Append the Instagram username to the end of this URL: http://widget.stagram.com/rss/n/USERNAME
  4. Visit the URL.
  5. You’ll see an XML document appear in your browser window.

  3. Go to WP RSS Aggregator in your WordPress site’s dashboard and click on Add New. Paste the URL of the XML feed and configure the settings to your liking.
