Instagram plugin free WordPress. My personal selection


Add Instagram in WordPress

In this article I want to describe an Instagram plugin free WordPress and list its features. An useful free plugin for WordpPress that will allow you to add your Instagram profile to your website. I have often faced the request from my clients to add their Instagram profile to their company website, and after several researches to find a solution, I have found what for me is the best and share it to who needs it. I am talking about a free resource that provides you the solution to your problem: Smash Balloon Social photo feed by Smash Ballon.

Free WordPress plugin

As I have mentioned before, this is an Instagram plugin free WordPress and can be easily installed from the backend of the website in the plugin section. Smash Balloon Social Photo Feed is the best solution at the moment (in my opinion) as it is free and can satisfy your needs to add an Instagram profile on a website built in WordPress. First of all I want to list the main features of it:

  • Easy to install and to set up

  • Display photos from multiple Instagram accounts in the same feed or in separate feeds

  • Responsive and mobile friendly

  • Custom width, height, number of photos, number of columns, image size and more

  • Display “Follow” button

  • Display thumbnail

  • Multiple custom options

To be honest this plugin has released in two versions: the basic and the pro. The above list is the list of the basic feature, which are already enough to add Instagram profile in WordPress. Pro version adds more features as display the amount of likes, create a photo carousel, filter posts per hashtags, create “shoppable” Instagram feeds and more. But the question that you will have to ask yourself is: “do I need the pro features? Is the basic and free version enough for what I want to do?” Answer to your questions and choose your version, but I am pretty sure that the basic version of the plugin will satisfy your needs to add Instagram profile on your website. Therefore if you don’t require to have pro features go for the basic, you can already customize your feed as you want, adding also a follow button to have more engagement and grow your profile.

Someone could ask me: why don’t you have it in your website? Simple, at this moment I don’t need. This is a plugin that I recommend as I use it for my clients, that’s why I suggest it to you. If in future I will need, then I will definitely go for this one.
