Updating your Instagram Access Token

To obtain a new Access Token from Instagram just follow the simple directions below:

1) Navigate to the Instagram Feed Settings page in your WordPress admin and click on the blue Instagram login button:

instagram-access-token-1

2) If you’re not logged into your Instagram account then you will be prompted to do so in order to authorize the plugin to obtain a token.  When returned back to the settings page simply copy and paste the new Access Token into the plugin’s “Access Token” field and click “Save Changes“:

instagram-access-token-2

That’s all there is to it!

Troubleshooting

If the new Access Token doesn’t appear to be working then check the following:

  1. You copy and pasted it into the Access Token field correctly
  2. You clicked “Save Changes” after copy and pasting the token
  3. If you have any caching applied to your site then try clearing the cache as the old Access Token may still be being used by your site
