Why choose this Instagram feed plugin?

We could say whatever we want about our own plugin,
so here’s how Fyn described Spotlight in her 5-star review…

I got the free version to display a simple feed, which worked nicely and has a good set of options, not too overcrowded and well thought through. I was surprised by the good usability that I encountered in the backend. Most importantly: they provided me with amazing support and response times which helped me properly implement the plugin.

Here’s a quick look at what you can expect from Spotlight.

Instagram may sometimes have trouble, so Spotlight uses its own clever caching system to make sure your feeds are always backed up and visible to site visitors, even when there are issues out of our or your control.

Frequently asked questions

Instagram is one of the most powerful ways to connect and engage with your audience, but your website is not to be neglected. Keeping up with and growing both your Instagram account and your website takes a lot of time, so Spotlight aims to help with that.

By adding an Instagram feed to your website you can keep it looking fresh while only creating content for one platform – Instagram.

Website visitors may also be finding you from other places, not just Instagram, so adding a “Follow” button alongside your eye-catching posts could help turn passers-by into lifelong supporters.

And let’s not forget that it’s a great form of social proof. Whether you run a blog or a small business, showing a website visitor that other people like them are engaging with you is a powerful message.

Aside from the plugin itself, all you need are a WordPress website and an Instagram account. Spotlight works with both Personal and Business Instagram accounts.

The plugin guides you to connect your account in just a few seconds. Once that’s done, the Instagram feed is ready to be placed anywhere on your site. It’s that simple.
