You will see the module settings on the next screen. Let’s take a closer look at this module settings and see how to enable Instafeed on your site.


Like any other module “TM Instafeed” has several tabs available. Menu Assignment, Advanced and Permissions tabs have default modules settings.

Module tab usually displays key module settings. This module is not an exception. Here are the basic module options:

  • Accesstoken. Authenticated requests need Instagram Access token. Access Token is an opaque string that identifies a user, app, or page. It can be used by the app to make graph API calls and is unique to each user.

To get Access token, please, do the following:

1.1. Sign into your Instagram account as a developer.

1.2. This step will be useful for the Client ID field. You need to register your Client ID. To do that click Manage Clients tab in the top right corner. Register a new client by clicking Register a New Client button on the next screen. Enter your site details (site URL and description). Click Register button and copy your Client ID and Client Secret.

1.3. To get your Instagram Access Token paste your Client ID and Client Secret here.

1.4. Note that Instagram will request your authorization as a sandbox user. That’s why click Authorize on the next page in order to complete the task.

1.5. Copy your Access Token ID and paste it to your module settings.
