When it comes to choosing which Instagram feed plugin you’re going to use for your Wordpress site, there are a variety of options, both free and paid. Today, we want to share with you the best free Instagram feed plugins of 2019. Because Instagram is constantly updating its API, a lot of good options are sadly no longer working, so we put together this list of our favorites that are still kicking.



Social Photo Feeds (Formerly “The Instagram Feed”)

Social Photo Feeds by Smash Balloon is fully featured, with a variety of customization options, such as the ability to display pictures from multiple accounts in one feed. This plugin is also optimized for mobile, so you don’t have to worry about pictures displaying incorrectly between devices. When it comes to reliable plugins, this is one of the best.

Feed Them Social

Feed Them Social isn’t just an Instagram feed plugin, it's an all-around social media powerhouse. You can include feeds from all your social media accounts and embed them pretty much anywhere you want on your website easily. The catch? If you want more fine-tuning customization options, such as setting how many pictures in a row you want to display, you’ll have to cough up for the paid version.

WP Instagram Widget

Looking for something a little more streamlined? The WP Instagram Widget might be right up your alley. It has little in the way of customization options, but the setup is incredibly easy (no need to authenticate your account!). Its effect on your pages load time is also extremely minimal.
