Our Instagram WPBakery element has three options to get media from your account on Instagram:
- Scrape - simply scrapes the page on the web and parses all the images. This method is outdated and may be blocked by Instagram now.
- AJAX - similar to the first one but images are parsed on the frontend side. Works for now but probably will not be allowed in the future.
- API - allows you to get images using Instagram API. Most stable and legal method but works with your own account only and requires Instagram APP configuration.
Note: Starting October 15, 2019, new client registration and permission review on Instagram API platform are discontinued in favor of the Instagram Basic Display API. More details here Please use AJAX option while we are working on alternative.
With first two methods you need to specify your username only to obtain photos.
