oui_instagram - Display Instagram user infos and recent images

It is strongly recommended you employ a cache plugin or system to avoid too many external queries.

Plugin tags work more or less like txp images tags.

The plugin uses oui_insta_ instead of oui_instagram_ prefix from v1.0.0 for shorter tag names.

<txp:oui_insta_images />

or

<txp:oui_insta_images username="cercle_magazine">
    <txp:oui_insta_image_url>
        <txp:oui_insta_image />
    </txp:oui_insta_image_url>
    <txp:oui_insta_image_info /><br />
    <txp:oui_insta_image_author />, <txp:oui_insta_image_date />
</txp:oui_insta_images>

Re: oui_instagram - Display Instagram user infos and recent images

This could be very useful – thanks Nicolas!

But I’m getting these errors with v0.6.3 in Textpattern 4.5.7:

Warning: file_get_contents(https://api.instagram.com/v1/users/search?q=myusername&access_token=xxxx.xxx): failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 400 BAD REQUEST while parsing form None on page news

Textpattern Notice: oui_instagram was unable to find the user id of the following instagram username: myusername while parsing form None on page news

The 400 bad request is:
OAuthPermissionsException”,“code”:400,“error_message”:“This request requires scope=public_content, but this access token is not authorized with this scope. The user must re-authorize your application with scope=public_content to be granted this permissions.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Could you try to get a new access token from here and let me know if it works?

Edit: by using the username attribute you need an access token authorized in the public_content scope to allow the plugin to get your user id (the link above should do the trick). Nevertheless, the last plugin version allows you to directly provide a user id via the user_id attribute; it is faster than username and doesn’t require any special login permission. If you can get your user id here or elsewhere, I recommend the use of this attribute…

Re: oui_instagram - Display Instagram user infos and recent images

Thanks Nicolas – that worked perfectly.
My mistake was attempting to create the access token from within the Instagram account (but shouldn’t that work anyway?)

I upgraded from v0.5.9 because a limit of only 33 Instagram images were being pulled onto my website, despite requesting 100. Since this problem has not been resolved by using v0.6.3 I conclude that the problem lies elsewhere – I guess within the Instagram API?

BTW your frenglish is infinitely superior to my Engçais!

Great!

By default Instagram gives you an access token with a basic scope which is not enough to get the user id from the username attribute but should be enough to pull your images with the use of the user_id attribute, I’ll try to improve the plugin or at least the help file.

I upgraded from v0.5.9 because a limit of only 33 Instagram images […] I conclude that the problem lies elsewhere – I guess within the Instagram API?

Right, I didn’t try to pull as many images for now but it seems that the only way to pull more images is to throw several requests: see here. I’ll see if I can do something for the next version; no warranty…

BTW your frenglish is infinitely superior to my Engçais!

Merci ! :D

Re: oui_instagram - Display Instagram user infos and recent images

Yes, I had another go at using the default Instagram access token – this time with the user_id attribute – and it does work…with a 20 image limit of course.

Anyway…thanks for your work thus far :)

The login permission also affect the max images count? I didn’t notice that; interesting…

Re: oui_instagram - Display Instagram user infos and recent images

Let me introduce oui_instagram-v.0.6.4.

See this related topic to know more about the use of plugin prefs as default values for attributes.

Re: oui_instagram - Display Instagram user infos and recent images

@Johnno; would you like to try this? It’s not as clean as it could yet but it kicks out the limit of 20/33 images…
