With Instagram Feeds Pro 6.3 we have changed the CSS code that determines how your feeds are laid out. The plugin now uses something called CSS Grid. This was done to accomplish three things – prevent conflicts with some WordPress themes, make it easier to create crisp layouts with our new feed themes feature, and improve the look and feel of our existing feed design with the same crisp edges that can extend all the way to the edge of the content.
What Changes Will I See?
The grid layout will support crisp edges that line up with other content on the page more easily. Previously adding any sort of spacing or padding to the feed would result in the feed not reaching the edge of the content area.
Now, with CSS grid, the content of the feed when in the grid layout will look like this:
Will Existing Feeds Be Affected?
Existing feeds may be affected by the change. If you had customizations that involved the layout of the items inside your feed you may need to fix some visual changes to get things to look like they did before. Although we can’t help with all customizations you can reach out to support to see if there is anything that can be done to restore customizations. Otherwise you may need to reach out to the person that created the customization in the first place.
We also have a setting to help with any transition needed. You can toggle the CSS used in version 6.2 using the setting found on the “Advanced” tab of the Instagram Feeds settings page.
This setting may not be available in the future so it would be good to tackle any issues with your feeds’ layout over the next few major versions of Instagram Feed Pro.
