Module: Instagram Feed

Recommended Posts

Ahhhh, you know what it could be! I am currently using hosts file to point a domain to another IP address so the rediercts url will be hitting a different server!

Do you think that is it?

Is there any work around whilst I'm in development to get this working on the server I am on?

@justb3a Is it only possible to retrieve the recentMedia of the sandbox user?
EDIT: To clarify: Can I just access images of the access token user or can I get images from every user?

I get the images of my own account (which is in sandbox mode) but if I enter something diffent in the field "Username" in the modules settings, I still get the same images and not the images of the other user.

I even tried

$instagram = $modules->get('InstagramFeed')->getRecentMedia("cocacola");

but still my own images appear. I also tried clearing the cache via the link in the modules setting.

The sandbox api is limited to sandbox users everywhere, so even retrieving by tag does only show images of those. You cannot get any other users media.

Hi everyone,

This is a great module. I was just wondering if anyone knows whether it would be possible for me to pull the location of each Instagram post and if so what the correct call is?

Thanks,

Matt

@Matt_P If you use the `getRecentMedia()` endpoint you should be able to access the location inside the foreach loop.  Have a look at the instagram api, expand the response and there you'll see an example response containing all data which will be returned including a location entry.

"location": {
  "latitude": 37.778720183610183,
  "longitude": -122.3962783813477,
  "id": "520640",
  "street_address": "",
  "name": "Le Truc"
}

Code example (not tested):

<?php $feed = $modules->get('InstagramFeed')->getRecentMedia(); ?>

<div class="instagram">
  <?php foreach ($feed as $media): ?>
    // check if location is not `null`
    <?php if ($location = $media['location']): ?>
      Location: <?= $location['name'] ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
  <?php endforeach; ?>
</div>

Hi everyone,

Do you think it would be possible to save the last 20 or so medias (due to instagram sandbox mode), as if they would have been uploaded on the site?

In order for them not to disappear when the new posts arrive.

Mainly, the idea would be to have the complete feed displayed.

 

I did it manually with the medias urls for now but they keep changing so it's not a very suitable solution…

 

Thanks

hi @Tanky you could add an image field to your page and save the image there.

Try something like the following:

$page->of(false);
$page->images->add($media['images']['standard_resolution']['url']);
$page->save("images");

I pasted your code in the foreach that I use to generate each media of the feed:

$page->setOutputFormatting(false);
$page->insta_image->add($media['images']['standard_resolution']['url']);
$page->save("insta_image");

It returns me this error, which is weird because you already disabled the output formatting:

Error: Exception: Can't save field from page 1: /: Call $page->setOutputFormatting(false) before getting/setting values that will be modified and saved. [insta_image] (in /home/tenutaxyit/www/wire/core/PagesEditor.php line 783)

 

And there is something else I thought about, each time someone will load the page the images will be saved again, so how could I check if a media is already backed up before saving it?

@Tanky Sorry, I have not the time at the moment to try this myself. But this is more a general topic, please try to use the forum search, I know there are a lot of topics which cover how to add an image via api. If you want to have an "archive"/Feed of all images/posts, you should consider to decouple the process of saving images from displaying it on the webpage. I would set up a cronjob or something like this which "asks" repeatedly at certain time intervals whether there are new posts. Then you could add a new Page / Page-Table-Item / Repeater-Item (it's up to you how to save it) containing the image and all the desired data (location, comments, ..) as well as the id (`$media['id'|`). Simply check if you already have an item with that id. You could also check whether `$media['created_time']` is greater than the last inserted item.

Or even better: the endpoint supports additional parameters which could be implemented as well:

MAX_ID    Return media earlier than this max_id.
MIN_ID    Return media later than this min_id.

Using MIN_ID you should be able to only receive new posts/images.

I commented out line #317 of InstagramFeed.module to stop the logging for now.

Here's a question. is there a way of setting the imageCount value when initialising the module. I don't think there is taking a look at the modules methods but perhaps I'm wrong?

This might be handy in the instance where you want to have one page show say 4 images and another show 8.

I know you could do this when iterating and limit but might be able to set limit based on each instance of the instagram feed?

There you go:

<?php $feed = $modules->get('InstagramFeed')->setImageCount(8)->getRecentMedia();  ?>

Has any one noticed a problem with Instagram posts with multiple images not showing?

I get the output:

// output video  

suggesting that "multiple image" posts are not picked up as media type "image".

<?php if ($media['type'] === 'image'): ?>

With thanks...

Found a fix for posts with multiple images...

Replace

// output video

with:

      <a href="<?=$media['link']; ?>" class="instagram-item">
        <picture>
          <source media="(min-width: 55rem)" srcset="<?=$media['images']['standard_resolution']['url']; ?>">
          <source media="(min-width: 45rem)" srcset="<?=$media['images']['low_resolution']['url']; ?>">
          <source srcset="<?=$media['images']['thumbnail']['url']; ?>">
          <img src="<?=$media['images']['thumbnail']['url']; ?>" alt="">
        </picture>
      </a>

e.g.

<div class="instagram">
  <?php foreach ($feed as $media): ?>
    <?php if ($media['type'] === 'image'): ?>
      <a href="<?=$media['link']; ?>" class="instagram-item">
        <picture>
          <source media="(min-width: 55rem)" srcset="<?=$media['images']['standard_resolution']['url']; ?>">
          <source media="(min-width: 45rem)" srcset="<?=$media['images']['low_resolution']['url']; ?>">
          <source srcset="<?=$media['images']['thumbnail']['url']; ?>">
          <img src="<?=$media['images']['thumbnail']['url']; ?>" alt="">
        </picture>
      </a>
    <?php else: ?>
      <a href="<?=$media['link']; ?>" class="instagram-item">
        <picture>
          <source media="(min-width: 55rem)" srcset="<?=$media['images']['standard_resolution']['url']; ?>">
          <source media="(min-width: 45rem)" srcset="<?=$media['images']['low_resolution']['url']; ?>">
          <source srcset="<?=$media['images']['thumbnail']['url']; ?>">
          <img src="<?=$media['images']['thumbnail']['url']; ?>" alt="">
        </picture>
      </a>
    <?php endif; ?>
  <?php endforeach; ?>
</div>

Is there any plans to update this to work with new instagram Graph API, as the plugin stopped working as support for the /users/{id}/media/recent has been deprecated as of the 4th April 2018

Cool to have a Module set up for this @justb3a! Cheers! 😄

I've been reading the topic, but still have a question – not so much about the implementation, but more in options I guess;
In understand that it's connected to Sandbox users, but as I'm filling in one user, I take it it's not possible to fill in multiple users?

(either in the module-field, or chained in the getRecentMedia('user1, user2')?
...Just wondering, as I'm working with a collective that has multiple accounts.

I see this notice:

[InstagramFeed]: No data was received for 'nome_user' (recentmedia).
[InstagramFeed]: No user 'nome_user.it' was found.

 I use the correct user name and I checked all the keys access and these are correct, also the token. I saw that the account registered the permission to use my app. So, I don't know maybe I miss something... What I can check ?

 

FIXED:

In the end I find that if I disable implicit OAuth and not force the signed requests everything works well. btw I don't know if is a good things!

 

UPDATE:

I still see this error in the log page every time some one visit the page:  [InstagramFeed]: No user 'xxx' was found.

The page work well, but why I see this error and how I can delete it?

Thank you

Is there a way to get media with a certain tag limited to one user with this module. Have tried chaining getRecentMediaByTag() but I don't think that's possible.

      Hi all,
      I'm a new to website building. Learned some CRASH course of js,jquery,php. Then I found CMS. Still learning around forum, youtube....
      Anyway, please help me with some beginer questions:
      1, About template - please correct me if I understand wrong : every page should be (or recommended) built on a template. So if in total I'll have 10 pages, 2 of them have same layout, I'll need 9 templates.  And, what fields a page includes, is not defined in page, but defined in the template that page uses. 
      2,  Where to see what modules I've installed? is it in "Modules - Site"? 
      3, I installed "PageTable Extended", then what?  As in a youtube tutorial, it should appear in Setup tab, but it doesn't.  What's in there: templates,fields,logs,comments. (I installed "Uikit 3 site_blog profile".)
      4, I did a search in Processwire website for the famous "repeater matrix" module, and can not find it, there's a Repeater, as well as a Matrix. Is it not a module?
      5, I watched this youtube tuts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHqnLQy9R1A
      Anybody familiar with this tuts please help: 
      After he analysed a target webpage layout he wanted to mimic, he created some fields, some template, then based on those he created a page and input some "content" in there, then clicked "view", it's just some text. So, here comes my question, he copied a folder "assets" (subfolders are: css,fonts,js,img) over, then the page have the appearance/layout he wanted to mimic. Where does that assets folder come from?
      Appreciate any help.

      I've created a set of modules for importing (manipulating and displaying) data from external resources. A key requirement was to handle large (100k+) number of pages easily.
      Main features
      import data from CSV and XML sources in the background (using Tasker) purge, update or overwrite existing pages using selectors user configurable input <-> field mappings on-the-fly data conversion and composition (e.g. joining CSV columns into a single field) download external resources (files, images) during import handle page references by any (even numeric) fields How it works
      You can upload CSV or XML files to DataSet pages and specify import rules in their description.
      The module imports the content of the file and creates/updates child pages automatically.
      How to use it
      Create a DataSet page that stores the source file. The file's description field specifies how the import should be done:
      After saving the DataSet page an import button should appear below the file description.

      When you start the import the DataSet module creates a task (executed by Tasker) that will import the data in the background.
      You can monitor its execution and check its logs for errors.

      See the module's wiki for more details.
      The module was already used in three projects to import and handle large XML and CSV datasets. It has some rough edges and I'm sure it needs improvement so comments are welcome.

      Pages At Bottom
      Keeps selected pages at the bottom of their siblings.
      A "bottom page" will stay at the bottom even if it is drag-sorted to a different location or another page is drag-sorted below it (after Page List is refreshed the bottom page will still be at the bottom).
      Newly added sibling pages will not appear below a bottom page.
      The module also prevents the API methods $pages->sort() and $pages->insertAfter() from affecting the position of bottom pages.
      Note: the module only works when the sort setting for children on the parent page/template is "Manual drag-n-drop".
      Why?
      Because you want some pages to always be at the bottom of their siblings for one reason or another. And someone requested it. 🙂
      Usage
      Install the Pages At Bottom module.
      Select one or more pages to keep at the bottom of their siblings. If you select more than one bottom page per parent then their sort order in the page list will be the same as the sort order in the module config.

      Another little admin helper module...
      Template Field Widths
      Adds a "Field widths" field to Edit Template that allows you to quickly set the widths of inputfields in the template.

      Why?
      When setting up a new template or trying out different field layouts I find it a bit slow and tedious to have to open each field individually in a modal just to set the width. This module speeds up the process.
      Installation
      Install the Template Field Widths module.
      Config options
      You can set the default presentation of the "Field widths" field to collapsed or open. You can choose Name or Label as the primary identifier shown for the field. The unchosen alternative will become the title attribute shown on hover. You can choose to show the original field width next to the template context field width.
