Displaying posts from multiple Instagram accounts in one feed on your WordPress website can be quite a time-consuming task … if you don’t have the right tools! Although WordPress does let you manually insert Instagram posts with its Instagram block, it only lets you import posts one at a time.

With an Instagram feed plugin such as Spotlight, you can now not only display all your posts at the click of a button, but you can also merge multiple accounts within one feed.

In this article, I’ll show you how you can do just that.

Why Spotlight is the best plugin to display Instagram feeds on your website

Spotlight is a WordPress plugin that allows website owners to display Instagram feeds on their website. It’s the best option for showcasing Instagram content on your website for several reasons. Firstly, Spotlight offers a simple and intuitive setup process that allows you to easily connect as many Instagram accounts as you like.

Lastly, Spotlight is designed with performance and speed in mind, ensuring that the Instagram feed loads quickly and efficiently on your website. This feature is crucial for providing a positive user experience and preventing slow loading times that can negatively impact SEO rankings. With Spotlight, you can showcase your Instagram content without sacrificing site speed or performance, making it the best WordPress plugin for displaying Instagram feeds on your website.

How to display multiple Instagram accounts in one feed in 3 steps

Step 1: Connect your account

Once you’ve got Spotlight installed and activated on your WordPress website, start by connecting your Instagram accounts. Before doing anything on your website, go to the Instagram website and make sure you’re logged in to your first account.

Next, go to your WordPress website and go to Instagram Feeds > Settings in your dashboard.

Here you’ll get 3 options:

  1. Connect your Personal account
  2. Connect your Business account
  3. Connect your client’s account (using an access token).

Choose the best option depending on your Instagram account. If you’re unsure, you probably have a personal account. Next, authorize Spotlight to import your posts and your account will be connected in no time at all.

Connecting your accounts

If you’ve opted for a Personal account, a popup box will appear asking you whether you want to upload a custom profile photo and user bio.

Instagram’s API does not allow these items to be imported for Personal accounts, but Spotlight does a great job at creating a workaround. You can choose to skip this step if you wish.

Changing the photo and bio

Note: You can always return back to the Settings page at any time to update your profile photo and bio.

Next, it’s time to connect your second account. Go back to Instagram and log in to the next account you want to connect.

Back in Spotlight, on the Settings page, click on Connect more Instagram accounts. This time, we’ll see what connecting a Business account is like.

Connecting another account

If you’ve selected this option, Spotlight will once again ask you to import your Instagram posts. Once you grant access, your account will be added to the list. This time, your profile photo and bio (if you have one) will automatically be imported.

Note: If you’re connecting a Business account, Spotlight will also need to access the Facebook page associated with your Instagram account.

Settings page

Finally, you can also connect an account using an access token. To do so, head over to this page where you or your client can easily generate a token in just a few seconds. Then just copy and paste it into Spotlight.

There you have it! You’re all set. You can repeat this process as many times as you like, connecting an unlimited number of Instagram accounts.

Step 2: Set up your feed

Select your accounts

To set up and design your feed, go to Instagram Feeds > Feeds in your WordPress sidebar.

Select My Instagram posts from the first screen.

Create an Instagram feed

Next, pick a template. I’ve selected the Portfolio template for this tutorial.

Selecting your template

Now it’s time to select your accounts under the Connect tab. On the right-hand side of your screen, you will now notice all your connected accounts. Select the ones you want to include in your feed and automatically, your posts will show up in the live interactive preview.

Forgot to add an account in the previous step? No problem! Connect it now by clicking on the button on the top right-hand side of your page and follow the same steps as before.

Selecting your accounts

If you’re using an Instagram Business account, you will also be able to show posts where your accounts have been tagged, as well as hashtag feeds.

Filter and moderate your feed

Displaying many accounts in one feed means that you have plenty of posts to choose from. In fact, you might want to choose which posts to show in your Instagram feed.

Spotlight gives you the option to filter and moderate your feed. These features give you full control over what your feed will look like on your WordPress website.

You can filter your feed by showing or hiding posts with a specific word or phrase in their caption, or by hashtag under the Filter tab.

Filtering your feed

You can also head over to the Moderate tab to manually select which posts you want in your feed. In this example, I selected the Hide the selected posts button and selected the posts that I don’t want to show in this particular feed.

Moderating your feed

Design your feed

Finally – and this is optional – move on to the Design tab to modify the template you selected. Spotlight comes with over 40 customization options so you rest assured that your feed will be seamlessly integrated into your website’s design.

In this example, I’ve chosen to show my filtered posts at random, under Feed Options.

Designing your feed

One of the options you unlock when displaying posts from multiple accounts is that you can choose which account to show in the header. This is great if you want to direct visitors to one particular account.

Spotlight gives you one other nifty feature. You can display the account name when you hover over different posts. This lets visitors know where your content has been brought in from.

Once you’re happy with your feed, click on the device icons at the top of your Design page to see that your feed looks great on all three devices. You can always change things up a bit for each device by adding different customizations.

Step 3: Embed your feed

All you need to do now is to save your feed. On any post or page, search for the Spotlight Instagram Feed block and your Instagram feed will be added in an instant.

Alternatively, Spotlight generates a shortcode that you can use anywhere on your website. Using Elementor to power your website? Use the Spotlight Elementor widget.

Additionally, Spotlight comes with its own caching system. This means that even if Instagram were to go down, Spotlight will make sure that your feed is always looking stunning.
