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.

To install Spotlight, open the “Plugins” page on your WordPress site, click on “Add New” and search for “Spotlight Social Photo Feeds”. Once it comes up, click on “Install Now” and then “Activate”.

Alternatively, download Spotlight from the WordPress plugin repository, open the “Plugins” page on your WordPress site, click on “Add New”, then use the “Upload” option to upload the zip file downloaded from WordPress.org.
