Instagram Feed (Covent Garden)

Learn how to configure and use the Instagram Feed module. In your control panel, go to Storefront > My Themes, and click the blue "Customize" button to launch Theme Editor. In the left hand column of the Theme Editor, click the panel labelled 'Home Page Instagram Feed'


Link your Instagram feed to your store and display it on your home page.

Please note - Due to recent changes to the Instagram API, as of v2.3.0 of our Covent Garden theme, Instagram content is pulled in via the Elfsight plugin.

Using Elfsight

Elfsight offer a highly configurable feed module that we have set up our theme to work with. They offer free and premium versions, which you can sign up for here.

Activating the Module

Check the box to activate your Elfsight Instagram feed.

Configuring the look and feel

Configure your Instagram widget in the Elfsight control panel. Be sure to use the Instagram Feed widget, rather than Instagram Widget or Instagram Testimonials.

Embedding your Elfsight widget into Covent Garden

After setting up your Instagram feed widget, click the “Add to website” button in your Elfsight control panel.  You'll see a code snippet that looks something like this:

<script src="https://apps.elfsight.com/p/platform.js" defer></script>
<div class="elfsight-app-f1234b5b-e6bb-1234-1234-5d67b8fbbba9"></div><br>
		

Copy the code snippet, paste it into the text box below and click the “Copy ID” button on this page.

The ID (which should look similar to elfsight-app-f1234b5b-e6bb-1234-1234-5d67b8fbbba9) has been copied to your computer's clipboard.  You can now paste the copied ID into the “Elfsight App ID string” in your theme editor control panel.
