    Hello, Please add an “Instagram” button, it would be great. Also, if you could find a way to allow us to add an Instagram gallery on our blogs it would be fabulous! I know that it only works for wordpress.org blogs, but please, we bloggers with wordpress.com do not want to be left behind…

    The blog I need help with is shoptheday.com.

    Hi,
    Yes I know how to add an Instagram pictures. What I wish I could do is add a gallery that you can click on and that links to the Instagram profile. Also, there are many buttons available now on wordpress.com but the Instagram one is not there yet. But thank you!!!

    Instagram has provided its users with a badge whose code can be added to a text widget.

    After you log in to the Instagram website, click on your username and then “Badges” from the drop down menu there. Select your badge and copy only the last part of the code. Paste that into a text widget.
    <a href="http://instagram.com/<strong>yourusername</strong>?ref=badge" class="ig-b- ig-b-v-24"><img src="//badges.instagram.com/static/images/ig-badge-view-24.png" alt="Instagram" /></a>

    Alternately, you can save the badge you wish to use, upload it to your Media Library and then use it in an Image Widget, linking to your user profile on instagram.

    Also, there is a discussion here about using the flickr widget for instagram images, but be warned it does not always work as expected. https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/issue-with-flickr-widget?replies=23#post-1155866

    Ah, so no code within code. :)

    The last part should be
    <a href="http://instagram.com/yourusername?ref=badge" class="ig-b- ig-b-v-24"><img src="//badges.instagram.com/static/images/ig-badge-view-24.png" alt="Instagram" /></a>

    would also really like for there to be a widget option for this! just throwing my vote in there. maybe if it was similar to the twitter widget- last 3 pics or something.
    thanks for the help in the meantime, justjennifer!

    @justjennifer Many, many thanks for this info. I knew about the badges, but had no clue how to use it in WordPress!!
