Want to snap pictures with your smartphone and have them automatically appear on your WordPress photo blog? With the Instagrate to WordPress plugin by polevaultweb and Instagram, you can do just that. The Instagrate to WordPress plugin can display the Instagram photos you take with your phone in either pages or posts on your blog.
Once you install and activate Instagrate, you can access it via the Settings menu.
The first step is to login to Instagram to authorize the connection.
Next, you can go through the Instagrate settings to customize its use.
You can specify a starting point with your Instagram photos. All images after the specified one will get automatically posted.
There are also a number of settings to configure how your photos are stored and displayed within WordPress. For example, you can specify whether your photos should be added to your media library or added as a link to your Instagram photo. This is also where you specify whether you want your photo to appear as a post or a page.
You can also add a custom title and text that will appear with your photos.
I found this plugin extremely easy to setup and use. After I clicked my photo in Instagram, it showed up in my WordPress blog after just a couple of minutes!
The Instagrate to WordPress plugin is a great solution to easily add your smartphone images to your photo blog automatically. There is also a pro version of the plugin which offers even more options.
