Instagram access token

Screenshots Example:

To authorize Instafeed to fetch your media you’ll need to create a Facebook app, and add your Instagram user account as a test user:

The Instagram Basic Display API requires access tokens be refreshed at least every 60 days. You can’t create a token and paste it into your Instafeed option anymore – it will stop working when the token expires. Instafeed.js needs to be paired with a service which will keep your access token fresh. There are various ways to do this, depending on your skill level and environment. Learn more

There’re two ways to keep your Instagram Basic Display API token fresh

  • – Using Instagram Token Agent, its FREE and require the Skill level
  • – Using 3rd service like Instant-Tokens.Com
  • General, Parallax and Parallax Background tab

    Please take a look the documentation here for more detail about these tabs settings
