Selecting a Layout for Instagram Feed
Instagram Feed plugin provides 4 beautiful layouts, which you can use to showcase the photos and videos on your Instagram feeds. Each of them can be fully personalized to fit the style of your website.
Use Select Layout option and choose the appearance:
- Blog Style,
- Image Browser.
Let’s go through all 4 layouts and help you choose the one that suits your site the best.
Thumbnails Layout of Instagram Feed plugin provides an equally aligned grid, consisting of the thumbnail images of the media on your feed. All thumbnails on this layout are set to have the same dimensions, and you can assign the width and height you like.
Just like Thumbnails Masonry Layout is also built with the thumbnail images of Instagram posts. However, its grid is not aligned equally. The thumbnail images are created as the exact miniatures of their large versions (i.e. the dimensions of thumbnails and large posts are proportional).
Blog Style Layout
Blog Style Layout is a perfect choice if you want to post a media file on Instagram and repost the content to WordPress website as a photo blog. The images are displayed with larger dimensions, than on Thumbnails and Masonry Layouts.
You can enable captions, descriptions, and hashtags of the media and show them below the posts on your feed.
Image Browser Layout
Just like Blog Style, Image Browser Layout of Instagram Feed plugin also displays the posts with larger dimensions. However, this layout shows a single large image with navigation buttons. You can navigate through the posts by clicking on Next and Previous buttons.
