    This widget has been disabled for download at the moment. Please advise an alternative that is compatible with this theme? Much thanks.

    Hi Marc

    I have downloaded the plugin below. IG is still not showing in the widget though. Any other alternatives please? Thanks.

    Hi Joyce,

    can you provide a direct link to your website? I'd like to check the issue live.

    Hi Joyce,

    please connect the plugin to your Instagram profile. You can get to its settings page in your dashboard with a click on Plugins and then Settings below "Smash Balloon Instagram Feed".

    Afterwards you can insert a text widget in Hawea's Instagram widget area and place the following shortcode using the Text editor there:

    [instagram-feed]

    Hi Marc, thank you for the below. The IG feed is working! It doesn't look clean like the demo page. 

    I have tried many different configurations in the "instagram feed" and it still doesn't look like the demo. Attached is what it looks like.

    Hi Joyce,

    we will update the theme documentation and the theme styles in an upcoming theme update so it will be possible to recreate the look in the demo.

    Can you place the Instagram feed again on your website? I'd create some additional CSS code so you can use it right now until the theme update is ready.

    Best,
    Marc

    Hi Marc

    Thank you for your prompt reply. That's great, I can't wait to see the update.

    I have reconnected my IG with my page - https://joyceb.fr

    Cheers

    Hi Joyce,

    the following additional CSS code should be a start:

    #sidebar-front .textwidget pre {
        padding: 0;
        overflow: hidden;
    }

    Best,
    Marc
