S5 Instagram Feed

This tutorial will explain how to install and configure the S5 Instagram Feed module.


The S5 Instagram Feed module allows you to easily pull your Instagram feed images onto your website so you can display them in any module position. You can set the feed to show in a horizontal manor by adding a fixed height like we did here on the homepage of the Attractions design. Or you can also just have it show in a square and the images will auto orient themselves depending on your screen resolution. Lastly you can set up to how many images are shown at once and if you want to show a border around them or not.

Note - Many of our club products contain specific styling for our extensions. These styles cannot be transferred from one product to another; they are integrated into the design. The same extension is used on all installations, the themes themselves contain the styling overrides. If a particular theme does not include unique styling for a particular extension, then the default style is used.

Be sure to read the tooltips and other descriptions in the backend of this extension. There are a lot of tips and further information found in these areas.
