Instagram as a Widget
BadgePlz and Followgram have an awesome badge/button available for instagram now! As I am excited about it, I’ve gotten frustrated with posting it on my site. Well, I copied the HTML code(s) into a text widget, as I did the other badges on my site such as facebook and twitter, and they appeared fine. When I posted this one, didn’t matter which one I posted, it still appeared in text form. Can anyone help me out?
The blog I need help with is believebeautonomy.com.
It’s probably code that is banned for security reasons. Paste it here between backticks and we can look at it and perhaps offer workarounds.

There’s your problem: it’s an iFrame. That’s insecure code and will be stripped out here. There’s a possibility that you could put the link to instagram in your Flickr widget and see if that works, but otherwise I don’t know of any workaround that would display the images right in the sidebar. If you just want the links, find the RSS feed of your Instagram account and put that in the RSS widget.
I’ve tried several different methods even with posting in the RSS Feed and its not working either unfortunately…is there a way I can switch out the iframe?
It would be great if WordPress could make a widget for Instagram.
We’ve added an Instagram widget to WordPress.com!
