Instagram Integration Widget allows for flexible customization of the image blocks. You can not only choose the way how your photos will be segregated, but also the manner in which they will be displayed. There is a number of features to set in Instagram Integration Widget.
You can choose one of the possible ways to show images in a block.
The issue of cache causing too high load of a server is a usual thing. This extension provides a special option to clean cached posts, when the set time expires. Just indicate the time in seconds and then after the end of it the cached photos will be deleted from your server. It saves from additional and annoying activities.
Instagram Integration Widget supports the display on multiple pages. Choose the ones you want to have image blocks on and enjoy the published photos. If you like, you can attach the widget to all the pages without specifying them. This feature is also available.
Every widget has a special option in settings responsible for quick and easy turning it on and off. You can hide one widget and let others function as before. Regulate display settings the way you want.
If a user wants to take a closer look on a particular image, he will click on it to zoom it. Instagram Integration Widget gives you a possibility to open this photo in a Lightbox. Still, you can set redirection to the Instagram account that owns this photo. Both options are available.
You can show the information about the photo and the author of it in a Lightbox in your store. If you want to give your clients information about the post - you are free to do so. This extension supports posts information display.
To clarify what exactly your widget shows, you can set a specific Title for it. In addition, if you want to provide your visitors with more information, add a detailed Description, containing information you find suitable.
Customize the widget even more appointing the number of Rows and Columns. Find the number that will suit your design the most and use it.
Name your every widget to give your clients a glimpse of what you want to show them. Make every image block unique with individual descriptions of the content. Tell your clients a bit more about the photos shown - it will add individuality to the posts instead of just showing random images.
To make switching the extension on easy, the option responsible for activating it brought out to a separate tab. Go to Stores > Settings > Configuration > NEKLO > Instagram Widget and find General Settings. Here you will see the most important option mentioned above that regulates the appearance of the widget on your pages. Just enter “Yes” in the “Enabled” to show it and “No” to hide it if you need.
Along with Enabling the widget you can set here Cache Lifetime for your cached posts at the same place. Insert the time period in seconds after which these posts will be deleted. It releases you from constant manual deleting of cached images.
Instagram Integration Widget offers easy and useful settings for adding a new widget. To do so, follow Content > Elements > Widgets and press the button “Add Widget”. Then choose Neklo Instagram Widget in the field “Type” and then set the existed Design Theme on your store. That is enough to start adjusting Instagram Widget.
After creating a new widget, you will appear on Storefront Properties tab. First of all, set here the Title of the widget to find it on backend quicker. It will help you not to get lost among other installed extensions. Then set Store Views you want your widget to be assigned to. This field helps you to regulate the hierarchy of views and online stores if you have a number of them. Also you can set Sort Order that points out the numerical order of this very widget. The option is quite helpful when you attach a number of different widgets to one point of a webpage.
The next options are responsible for setting the exact location of a edited widget. Add a Layout with all the information about pages to display your widget and exact place for it. For example, you can have this widget on a page with Billing methods or in a Catalog. Then indicate the block for Instagram Widget, like Main Content Area. It will make integration of this widget smoother and easier. You can set a number of these layouts allowing the same widget to be displayed on different pages and places on them.
Proceed further on the next settings tab called Widget Options that can be found on the left. Here you will find options designed for adjusting the manner how posts will be shown in the widget. Moreover, you can hide the widget anytime you want without additional effort. For this, just set “No” in the “Is Enabled” field.
Instagram Integration Widget offer 4 available modes for posts display. By setting the option “By User Name”, your visitors will see only the posts of the specified user. Enter his or her name below and save configurations. The mode “By Hashtag” works in a similar way. You should only set the desired hashtag instead of the user name. As a result you will have posts sorted out according to the entered hashtag regardless of users owning them.
Remaining two modes also have similar function. “By Product Hashtag” shows posts under the hashtag you have pointed out on the product page. The same is with “By Category Hashtag”, but it uses the hashtag from category pages. They are all available in the “Mode” field. Choose the one that suits you the most and save. The applied settings will come into effect.
Indicate a specific Title and Description to let your visitors understand what exactly you want to show them. Give this widget a name, like “Life of our staff” and post there photos of your events and celebrations. Provide some more information in Description, explaining users what they can see there. You can put here any information you want.
There is a possibility in Instagram Integration Widget to open posts in a Lightbox. If your customers want to read the full details about the post or just zoom it, they will click on it. Here you can set the Lightbox appearance on your website allowing for display a photo in bigger size. You can also prohibit Lightboxes and as a result visitors will be redirected to the Instagram page of this photo.
You can provide your visitors with all the necessary information about a post right on your store. Set “Yes” in the “Show Details” field to enable this function. Post Details will appear in a Lightbox if you have turned it on. Otherwise, users will be redirected to the correspondent Instagram page.
Another thing you can adjust in Instagram Integration Widget is the number of Rows and Columns. You can make your widget suite your design more by assigning the right structure. Enter the number of columns and rows of the photos displaying in your widget.
