It took all of 2.5 minutes to setup, and works like a champ. And don’t worry, as long as you can type, and cut and paste you can do it too. Ok here goes, with some pretty pictures.
First, go to SnapWidget and create your account. Nothing new here.
Second, this was probably the trickiest part. It wasn’t so clear what to click here on the widget screen. What I realized was that it’s displaying all your widget options. And you have to click the “Create Your Widget” button to select which style you want. I wanted a super simple one, so I went with a “responsive grid”.
Description – Not real sure what this is for, but I left it blank. Maybe it’s so you know what’s going on on your dashboard, or maybe it shows on the post. Either way I left it blank.
Layout – First field is for columns, second is for rows. I wanted a 1 row, 4 column section. So I put 1 and then 4.
Photo padding – the space between each image.
Hover effect – what do you want to happen when your mouse goes over the image.
Responsive – this setting comes into play when people view your shop on different sized screens. If you select “yes” then your Instagram feed will re-size according to the screen size of the user. I selected yes.
Now you can preview your widget if you want, make sure it’s what you want, fix it if it’s not, and then move to the exciting part! Cutting and pasting.
SnapWidget gives you a button to click to get the code. Super easy, just click it and it’ll stick the code on your clipboard.
Instagram for Shopify
Lastly, go to your store and anywhere where you can put HTML, you can stick the code and have your Instagram feed show up. I am using the free theme from Shopify called Jumpstart, on the home page is a section which I renamed to Instagram. It comes from a page, so I navigated to my Pages, clicked it to edit it and then selected the “show html” button.
This is where the magic happens! If you’re on a PC, to paste in the code just hit “ctrl-v” and booyah it’s in the there. Sorry if you’re on a Mac, I ain’t got nothing for you. But it’s probably something similar.
Now, just save the page and enjoy your real time Instagram feed for free!
