The remaining Instagram Legacy API permission (“Basic Permission”) was disabled on June 29, 2020. As of June 29, third-party apps no longer have access to the Legacy API. To avoid disruption of service to your app and business, developers previously using the Legacy API should instead rely on Instagram Basic Display API and Instagram Graph API. Please request approval for required permissions through the App Review process.
Somehow, after the last WordPress/Jetpack-update, my Instagram feed at the bottom of my website isn’t working anymore, more specifically: it’s gone. Ever since I’ve tried several things (ask my webhost for help and also the author of the Smash Balloon Plugin) to get it back, but the problem seems to be somewhere else. Also, I’m a bit of a beginner with WP and stuff, so I guess I could use some guidance here 🙂
An updated version of Essentialist with working Instagram feed has been out on ThemeForest for a while. Please go to your Downloads section on ThemeForest and download the latest version. It has integration with a third-party plugin that will display your feed just as in the demo.
A little context:
Facebook (who own Instagram) have changed Instagram API mid-summer 2020 and they made the old tokens that you may have acquired obsolete. Also, due to COVID-19, Facebook has paused developer verification which is needed to start accessing Instagram data after the API change. Until Facebook resumes developer verification, Mauer Themes has switched to a third-party plugin for displaying the Instagram feed.
