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

This is the recommended way of sharing your Instagram feed on your homepage.

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. Click the code snippet to copy it to your clipboard.

Paste the code into the text box below and click “Copy ID”

Now paste the copied ID into the “Elfsight App ID string” in your theme editor control panel.

Using the theme module

Please note - Due to recent changes to the Instagram API, as of v2.3.0 of our Covent Garden theme, our built in module has been removed. We recommend using Elfsight to pull in Instagram content.

Activating the Module

Check the box to activate your Instagram feed.

Instagram Access Token

Our module has been configured to pull in your feed of images from your own Instagram account. This will require a valid access token with an access scope of basic. Generate an access token with our tool, here.

Follow the instructions in our app to get the token, and set the "Instagram Access Token" field to the value of the generated string.

Please note that videos and image collections do not currently display in the panel

Additional Configuration

You can select the number of posts to pull through and number of columns to display on a large screen in this section.
