  • Captions???


  • Adding the Kona block to the editor.
  • Obtaining an Access Token from PixelUnion.
  • Adjusting the block settings.


Deze plugin voorziet 1 blok.



Firstly make sure that you have the Gutenberg plugin installed.

  1. Install the Kona plugin either via the WordPress plugin directory, or by uploading the files to your web server (in the /wp-content/plugins/ directory).
  2. Activate the Kona plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Get an Instagram Access Token: To do this login to instagram and [click here] (http://instagram.pixelunion.net/). Once you have a token, please paste it into the ‘Instagram Access Token’ setting.
  4. Add the Kona block to your editor, paste the Access Token into the block settings.
  5. Your Instagram feed will now show in the editor, adjust the settings to see how it will look before publishing.


My feed isn’t showing?

Please make sure to add your Instagram access token the block settings. Once added your feed should show instantly (well pretty fast at least).

How about X feature?

We will continue adding features as requested. If you have a killer idea for a feature submit a support request and we will see what we can do.
Note: we plan to release a premium version of the plugin which will likely receive new features first – this helps offset the cost of our development time.

The feed looks funny in IE9 (Or other old browser)

This plugin is laid out using the new CSS Grid specification, we do not have plans to support older browsers as we believe they are holding back the web. However we can (if requested) release some code which you can add to your site’s custom css in order to support certain browsers.

Very easy to use and intuitive. Does exactly what it says it does and took me less than a minute to set up. Highly recommended!

Saved me few hours of coding. It's super simple and intuitive to use, you can even increase the gutter between the images beyond 20px. Installed and it just works 🙂 Thanks for all the work!
