Update: I upped the rating another notch to 4 stars for attentive and constructive response from the author. However, the missing star is to say that this plugin is a bit outdated due to its implementation method and should be improved to work better with current version of WP. - After installing and going through all the config to connect to an IG account, it dawns on me that this plugin only displays IG feed using a widget. I know, it's in the name of the plugin. I'm so used to building WP sites with Gothenburg blocks nowadays, widgets and shortcodes feel so old school. In fact, the new widget editor doesn't even support widgets anymore. I wish the author create a Gothenburg block version for this plugin.

I love the plugin and the support was fast. Please keep in mind that you will have to reconnect it to Instagram. Access tokens are valid for 60 days. If the widget stops working, please generate a new Access Token below.
