Instagram 6 update

Years ago, we created Instagram Feed Pro with just a single goal in mind. We wanted to give you guys a quick and easy way of building and adding Instagram feeds to your site.

Today, we’re taking a huge step towards that goal with our biggest update yet.

With this update for Instagram Feed Pro, we’ve streamlined the process of creating, customizing, and managing Instagram feeds to make it easier than ever before.

Our new version 6 update is going to completely change the way you use Instagram Feed Pro with amazing new features like:

  • A New and Improved Admin Interface: A completely new plugin interface, redesigned from the ground up for simplicity
  • Simpler Feed Management: Find all of your Instagram feeds listed in one place so you can easily edit them individually
  • 3-Step Feed Creation: Create new Instagram feeds in 3 simple steps with our new guided flow to help you do this faster
  • Customizer With Live Preview: Brand new feed customizer that shows all of your changes in real-time with a live preview
  • Easier Instagram Shopping: With our new feed customizer, add custom links to your Instagram posts and create shoppable Instagram feeds much more easily
  • And Much More: Simpler feed export and import, color schemes, better Instagram account management, and tons of other new features to help you take full control of your Instagram feeds

With that, let’s take a look at each of these features in detail below, and see how they can help your business.

1. Manage Your Feeds Easily

Our latest update gives you an easier way to manage your Instagram feeds, with the help of these new features we’ve added to Instagram Feed Pro:

One Place for All of Your Feeds

Before this update, you had to manually check your site’s pages to find your Instagram feeds.

With Instagram Feed Pro 6, you now get a new dashboard that shows all of your Instagram feeds in a single place.

On top of that, you can even manage your Instagram feeds directly from this page. With just one click, you can use the All Feeds page to:

  • Edit a feed and customize its design to fit your brand
  • Duplicate your feed to use it as a template for another feed
  • Delete an Instagram feed that you’re not using

With better and quicker feed management, you can:

  • Check how many Instagram feeds you’ve added to your website
  • Quickly find and delete Instagram feeds that you don’t need anymore
  • Reuse the designs of the highly engaging Instagram feeds on your site
  • And a lot more!

Bottom line? Since it’s simpler to manage your Instagram feeds, you can easily add Instagram feeds to your website to get more followers and grow your business – even if you’re not a WordPress expert.

Edit Your Feeds Individually

Ever wanted a simpler way to customize your single Instagram feeds?

Previously, you had to use shortcodes if you wanted to customize individual Instagram feeds.

Now, we’ve added another feature to help you customize your single Instagram feeds — without writing a single line of code.

With Instagram Feed Pro 6, you can access the customization options of individual Instagram feeds with just one click.

Just use the All Feeds page to find the Instagram feed you want to customize.

Then, click on Edit to use our brand new feed customizer to set your feed layout, color scheme, header style, buttons, and more.

Any changes you make to a single feed won’t affect other Instagram feeds so you can freely customize it.

You can use this new feature when you want to have separate Instagram feeds with different designs on your site to:

  • Give your customers a better shopping experience by adding a shoppable Instagram feed that links to your product pages
  • Get more followers by displaying your Instagram profile on your “Contact Us” page
  • Convince visitors to buy from you by showing Instagram reviews and testimonials on your “Checkout” pages
  • And much more!

User-Friendly Dashboard

To give you a much better experience of using the plugin, we’ve redesigned the dashboard from scratch.

Now, all of your options are easier to find so setting up the plugin takes much less time.

Let’s walk you through the new dashboard.

After installing the plugin, the first thing you do is activate your license, right?

That’s why with the version 6 update, you’ll first see the License Key section as soon as you open the plugin settings page.

enter license key instagram feed pro settings

And since the next step after activating your license is connecting your Instagram account, we’ve made it more convenient for you.

You can now scroll down from the license key section to find the Manage Sources section where you can connect your Instagram account to the plugin.

From this section, you can easily connect the plugin to your Instagram accounts.

Plus, our new dashboard comes with a clean color scheme, larger font, and enough whitespace. As a result, everything is clearer and easy to read.

With the new user-friendly dashboard, you can set up the Instagram Feed Pro plugin in much less time. So, you’re free to invest that saved time back into your business.

2. Simpler Way to Create Feeds

Looking for a quicker and easier way to start creating your Instagram feeds?

We’ve done a major plugin overhaul so you can make your Instagram feeds in just a few seconds.

3-Step Feed Creation

With the version 6 update, creating your Instagram feeds will only take you 3 easy steps.

The plugin now comes with a guided flow that takes you through the process of creating Instagram feeds. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

To add a new Instagram feed to your site, simply:

  1. Choose a feed type
  2. Customize your Instagram feed
  3. Embed your feed

Once you click on the Add New button, the plugin will instantly let you pick from 4 Instagram feed types. You can even select multiple feed types to combine them together into one feed.

After that, you can select your Instagram account and easily customize your feed with just a few clicks.

Finally, once you’re done customizing, you can embed your Instagram feed directly from your feed editor.

As you can see, it’s now quicker and easier to add Instagram feeds to your website.

This way, you can build tons of engaging Instagram feeds in much less time. Plus, you can do that by yourself by following our guided flow – no need to hire a developer.

Easy Feed Export and Import

Do you have 2 websites or more, or do you have plans to build new sites in the future?

Good news! Our latest feed import and export feature will come in handy for you.

Instagram Feed Pro 6 now comes with a user-friendly way to import and export your Instagram feeds.

So, you can move your Instagram feeds to another site in just a few clicks, even if you’re not tech-savvy.

import and export feeds

No need to create new Instagram feeds from scratch. With this new feature, you can now reuse tried-and-tested Instagram feeds to engage your visitors on your other websites.

You now have a dashboard section where you can quickly import your saved Instagram feeds. Just click on Import, select your feed and you’re done.

Using this section, you can also export your Instagram feeds just as easily. With a single click, you can save your feeds as “.json” files.

export instagram feed

Want to get more Instagram followers? You can export high-converting feeds from your site, then import them to your other websites in just a few seconds.

Have your own branded templates when announcing promos on Instagram? Export your old feeds, then import them on your other sites as a template to save time on customization.

Also, with this added feature, it’ll take just a few seconds to create secure backups of your Instagram feeds and keep them safe on your computer.

As you can see, you can now grow lots of websites at once by exporting and importing your tried-and-tested Instagram feeds.

3. Brand New Feed Customizer

Instagram Feed Pro 6 comes with a brand new feed customizer that makes it simple and fast to edit your feed layout, colors, header style, buttons, and more.

Plus, you can do all that without touching a single line of code or hiring a developer.

Live Feed Customizer

In the past, you’d open your Instagram feed separately to see how it looks after customizing it.

As the best Instagram feed plugin in the market, we wanted to make sure customization is faster and more accurate for you.

With the new update, we’ve completely changed how you customize your Instagram feeds. Now you have a user-friendly feed customizer that shows you a live preview of your Instagram feed.

live instagram feed editor

Using the options on the left panel, you can customize your feed layout, color scheme, header style, post settings, lightbox, and much more.

And every time you customize your Instagram feed, you can see your changes in real-time with the live preview on the right.

Since you can always see how your Instagram feed looks, customization is now much more accurate.

Best of all, you can customize your Instagram feeds in much less time with the brand new feed customizer with a live preview.

Mobile and Tablet Preview

Here’s an interesting fact: Over 54% of people browse the internet using mobile devices.

If your Instagram feeds aren’t mobile-friendly, over half of your visitors might leave your site and go to your competitors instead.

That’s why Instagram Feed Pro 6 lets you see how your Instagram feeds will look on mobile and tablet devices. You can check the mobile preview from the feed customizer with just a simple click.

responsive preview instagram feed pro

With this new update, your Instagram feeds can effectively convert visitors from mobile devices as well. So you can get tons of new Instagram followers and customers for your business.

Different Color Schemes

Did you know that your website visitors will take less than 90 seconds to make a judgment about your brand?

And that’s not all. Up to 90% of that judgment is based on color alone!

The colors you have on your website and your Instagram feeds really matter if you want to engage your visitors.

For this update, we’re giving you an easier way to customize all the colors of your Instagram feeds.

All you have to do is pick a color scheme to instantly change all the colors on your Instagram feed – simply turn on light or dark mode for your feed with a simple click.

color schemes instagram feed pro

If you want to manually select the colors for different parts of your feed, then you can still use a custom color scheme.

Plus, you also get a live preview to check how the colors look on your Instagram feed.

Using the new color options, you can create a better impression of your brand and turn visitors into customers.

Easier Instagram Shopping

Before this update, you could only add links to your shoppable Instagram posts by opening your Instagram account and manually editing the post’s caption to include the URL.

Now, we’ve made it quicker and easier for you to create your shoppable Instagram feed.

You can use the new feed customizer to directly add and edit custom links for your Instagram posts.

Just go to Settings » Shoppable Feeds inside the feed editor and you can now add or update the URL of your Instagram posts in just a few seconds.

edit links shoppable feeds

Since you don’t need to have the URL in your captions, you can use the entire caption to talk about your products and convince people to make a purchase.

Do you have an Instagram feed on your sidebar? You can use this latest feature to turn it into a shoppable feed. This way, you can boost your sales by linking your Instagram posts to your product pages, so it’s easier for your site visitors to buy from you.

Want to update the link to your product pages? Just use the live feed editor and you can quickly change the custom link so your visitors can keep buying from you. No need to manually edit your Instagram post in a separate window.

With this latest update, creating beautiful feeds is quicker and easier – even if you’re not a WordPress expert. From the custom links to the layout, every customization option is much more convenient now.

What Do Existing Users Need to Know?

Already using Instagram Feed Pro?

Then you can rest easy. We’ve taken special care to make sure your previous Instagram feeds will continue working even after the update.

Once you update Instagram Feed Pro, the plugin will give you a quick tour of the new dashboard to show you how everything works.

Your older feeds will be saved as legacy feeds after the update and they will still work as usual.

legacy feeds for instagram feed pro

In fact, there’s a section for legacy feeds on the All Feeds dashboard where you can manage them.

legacy feeds instagram

Unlike the newer Instagram feeds, you can’t individually edit your legacy feeds. Instead, you can use the legacy feed settings to edit them all at once, just like before updating the plugin.

That way, your old Instagram feeds will continue to work fine, and you can even edit them all just like you used to. No need to worry, since your Instagram feeds will continue working perfectly.
