Customization options



  • Instagram post URL: To embed Instagram content you need to first visit the Instagram post on the web and get the embed code. Go to the post URL if you have it, or you can search for the username on Instagram.com, visit their profile, and then click the post to expand it. Click the more [...] button and select "Embed". This will open a dialog where you can get the HTML embed code. Simply copy the code into the input field the embedded post will automatically load after ShortPoint inserts it into the page. 


  • Hide caption: By default the post contains the media caption. You can decide to hide it by simply checking this option in the Settings tabThis will reduce the height size of the embedded element.

Size


The following set of options control the size and responsiveness of this Social Media element.


 

Width: The maximum width of returned media. This value is optional and must be greater than 320 pixels. Note that the height option is not supported. This is because the embed code is responsive and its height varies depending on its width and length of the caption.
