With the advent of ShowTime 5, you now have far greater control over the Instagram section on your home page.
You will need to obtain an access token to activate your Instagram feed for use in our themes.
When you click the GENERATE TOKEN link below, you'll be directed to a secure Instagram page that will allow you to log in and authorise your Instagram feed. You will then return to this page with a long string of letters and numbers that you can copy and paste into your theme settings.
Mile High Themes will not have access to any of your photos or personal information. The purpose of this process is so that Instagram can delegate bandwidth between user feeds. If you're interested in learning more about how Instagram delegates bandwidth, you can read more here.
Once you have your token please log into your store as an administrator then take the following steps:
- Online Store
- Select the Showtime Theme
- Customize theme
- Instagram > Access token > Enter your access token
- Click the "Save" button to save your changes.
Now an interesting feature built into ShowTime 5 is that you can now select how many images will appear per row when you site is viewed by a desktop PC, tablet or mobile device.
This is done via the PHOTO GRID settings as shown below.
You can also change the heading text to reflect your desired title for the Instagram, so if Instagram is not cool enough for you, you could call it "Really Cool Photos" and once you click the save button your changes will be saved.
Changing the position of the Instagram section on your home page
All sections in ShowTime 5 can now be reordered by dragging and dropping.
So if you would like the Instagram section to be above the Slideshow section you can simply drag and drop it above the Slideshow section as shown below
