Temporary Instagram Integration Workaround

Some of you were concerned about the suspension of the Instagram integration feature, so we have prepared a workaround that will help you embed the Instagram feed into your network. This can be done via a 3rd party tool.

In this example, we will be reviewing the RSS.app tool, but there are other services you can use for this purpose.
RSS.app has multiple subscription levels with different restrictions. However, their free plan should be enough for you to get started.

So how does it work?

1. Go to the RSS.app website and register a free profile.

2. Go to https://rss.app/rss-feed/create-instagram-rss-feed, insert the link to your Instagram profile in the field, and click the "Generate" button.

As a result, posts from your Instagram account will be automatically displayed in the activity feed of your network.

Note: Alternatively, you can use the link to configure an RSS feed widget on any page of your network.
