    Hi There,
    There are few ways you can integrate Instagram into your site. Here at WordPress.com we do not install plugins though, as they are already provided for us. That would be a self hosted site. If you are looking to do this with your WordPress.com site here is a support page that can explain the options you have and how to go about it!

    Hope this helps!

    Hello. When I follow the clip above my own computer wont let me authorise my instagram account. It just goes to a blank page. What should i do?

    I’m having the same issue as naturallyjek, and have tried on both Chrome and Firefox. I click the “Authorize Instagram Access” button and it directs me to a blank “https://wordpress.com/customize/blog_name” screen.

    I looked into some past forum posts to see if I could find some helpful information for you both to help resolve this.

    I found a solution that a few people have used by going into their Dashboard, (add /wp-admin to your site to get there), then go to Appearance>Widgets. If you find Instagram in the list and add it from there and authorize it should work. It seems as though this particular widget needs to be authorized using the WP admin widget page rather than the Customizer.

    Hope this helps, if you still have a problem and receive any type of error please copy it and let us know.
    Thanks

    Confirmed what @jenlynnemc said, I added this widget through /wp-admin and it authorized okay. This was done on Opera Neon (which is basically Chrome.)

    Yep, I found this forum post and got it to work through WP admin too – https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/im-unable-to-add-my-instagram-in-the-footer- Thanks!
