Automatically post your Instagram images to your WordPress site. When ever you post a new photo on Instagram, the plugin will create a post with the Instagram image caption as the title, and the Instagram image in the post content. Choose to save the Instagram image to the media library and set it as the featured image of the post.
No more manual embedding Instagram images into your posts, let this plugin take care of it all.
- Install the plugin
- Log in to Instagram from the plugin’s settings page

A new post will be created with each of the photos from Instagram. Simple, right?

What does this mean for you? A great way to republish your content on your site, or just create an awesome feed of photos in your site.
