Set how your users will get the post details, when clicking on a thumbnail. Choose a Lightbox on your store or a Redirection to Instagram page of a correspondent account. Moreover, you can choose the option of not showing this information at all - Instagram Pro Widget supports this function as well.

All websites are different and the feature that may look wonderful in one of them will not be appropriate for another one. For this purpose Instagram Pro Widget has flexible settings regarding its appearance on a page. Not only you can assign it to particular Store Views and set a Design Package. You can also specify the Sort Order that is responsible for numerical order of widget instances in one block reference.

Choose one of the four modes to display posts: by User Name, by Hashtag, by Product Hashtag, by Category Hashtag. To set this option, follow CMS > Widgets > the Name of your widget. Or you can create a new one by clicking on the button “Add New Widget Instance” at the same place.
If you set “by Product Hashtag”, then you will see the photos selected by the hashtag you have set on the product page. The mode “by Category Hashtag” does completely the same. The only difference is that it deals with category pages instead of product pages.
Each of these modes has its own features and lets you regulate the images shown in the widget. For example, if you set the mode “by User Name”, only the posts of the respective Instagram user will be shown. It may be you, your manager, or another person.
The “by Hashtag” mode allows to show all the images under this particular hashtag regardless of the person posted it. You can create your own hashtag and point it out. It may be used, for example, to show clients using your products. The number of ideas is limitless.
This extension gives you a possibility to regulate whether to show post details in a Lightbox, on a Instagram page, or do not show it at all.

Another option here is “Widget type”. Instagram Pro Widget supports two ways of displaying: a grid and a slider. Choose the one that suits your design the most and then set the desired thumbnails resolution a bit further. The last settings here are the number of Rows and Columns that help make the widget even more suitable or your website. You can also set “Show by step” if you want to regulate display by rows. Set the Step Length to finish the widget adjustment.

to set the extension. Also before installing Instagram Pro
Widget you should turn off code compilation. Otherwise your
store will be unavailable during the process of installation.

“Disable” is responsible for this.
The installation begins with unpacking the zip folder you have downloaded. Then extract all the files in it to your Magento 1 installation root folder. After that you need to clear cache. To do so, go to System > Cache Management.
Then you can turn the code compilation again. Go back to System > Tools > Compilation and enable it again after successful widget installation.
The last thing to do here is to reload ACL (Account Control Level) rules. In order to do that, just log out from you Admin Account and then log in again.
