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.

      I am happy to present my new fieldtype FieldtypeImageFromPage. It is made up of 2 modules:
      Fieldtype Image Reference From Another Page is a Fieldtype that stores a reference to a single image from another page. The image can be selected with the associated Inputfield.
      Inputfield Select Image From Page is an Inputfield to select a single image from images on a predefined page and it's children.
      And there also is a helper module that takes care of cleanup tasks.
      This module evolved out of a discussion about my other Module FieldtypeImagePicker.  It caters for use cases where a set of images is being reused multiple times across a site. With this fieldtype these images can be administered through a chosen page. All images uploaded to that page will be available in the inputfield.
      When to use ?
      Let editors choose an image from a set of images that is being used site-wide. Ideal for images that are being re-used across the site.
      Suited for images that are used on multiple pages throughout the site (e.g. icons).
      Other than the native ProcessWire images field, the images here are not stored per page. Only references to images on another page are stored. This has several advantages:
      one central place to organize images when images change, you only have to update them in one place. All references will be updated, too. (Provided the name of the image that has changed stays the same) Features
      Images can be manipulated like native ProcessWire images (resizing, cropping etc.) Image names are fully searchable through the API Accidental image deletion is prevented. When you want to delete an image from one of the pages that hold your site-wide images, the module searches all pages that use that image. If any page contains a reference to the image you are trying to delete, deletion will be prevented. You will get an error message to help you edit those pages and remove references there before you can finally delete the image. How to install and setup
      Download and install this module like any other modules in ProcessWire Create a page in the page tree that will hold your images. This page's template must have an images field Upload some images to the page you created in step 2 Create a new field. As type choose 'Image Reference From Another Page'. Save the field. In 'Details' Tab of the field choose the page you created in step 2 Click Save button Choose the images field name for the field that holds your images (on page template from step 2) Click Save button again Choose whether you want to include child pages of page from step 2 to supply images Add the field to any template You are now ready to use the field View of the inputfield on the page edit screen:

      View of the field settings

      The module can be installed from this github repo. Some more info in the README there, too.
      In my tests it was fairly stable. After receiving your valued feedback, I will eventually add it to the modules directory.
      My ideas for further improvement:
      - add ajax loading of thumbnails
      Happy to hear your feedback!

      Although the PW backend is really intuitive, ever so often my clients need some assistance. Be it they are not so tech savvy or they are not working in the backend often.
      For those cases it is nice to make some help videos available to editors. This is what this module does.
      ProcessHelpVideos Module
      A Process module to display help videos for the ProcessWire CMS. It can be used to make help videos (screencasts) available to content editors.
      This module adds a 'Help Videos" section to the ProcessWire backend. The help videos are accessible through an automatically created page in the Admin page tree. You can add your help videos as pages in the page tree. The module adds a hidden page to the page tree that acts as parent page for the help video pages. All necessary fields and templates will be installed automatically. If there are already a CKEditor field and/or a file field for mp4 files installed in the system, the module will use those. Otherwise it will create the necessary fields. Also the necessary templates for the parent help videos page and it's children are created on module install. The module installs a permission process-helpvideos. Every user role that should have access to the help video section, needs this permission. I use the help video approach on quite a few production sites. It is stable so far and well received by site owners/editors. Up until now I installed required fields, templates and pages manually and then added the module. Now I added all this logic to the install method of the module and it should be ready to share.
      The module and further description on how to use it is available on github: https://github.com/gebeer/ProcessHelpVideos
      If you like to give it a try, I am happy to receive your comments/suggestions here.

      A module created in response to the topic here:
      Page List Select Multiple Quickly
      Modifies PageListSelectMultiple to allow you to select multiple pages without the tree closing every time you select a page.
      The screencast says it all:

      Hello all,
      sharing my new module FieldtypeImagePicker. It provides a configurable input field for choosing any type of image from a predefined folder.
      The need for it came up because a client had a custom SVG icon set and I wanted the editors to be able to choose an icon in the page editor.
      It can also be used to offer a choice of images that are used site-wide without having to upload them to individual pages.
      There are no image manipulation methods like with the native PW image field.
      Module and full description can be found on github https://github.com/gebeer/FieldtypeImagePicker
      Kudos to @Martijn Geerts. I used his module FieldTypeSelectFile as a base to build upon.
      Here's how the input field looks like in the page editor:

      Hope it can be of use to someone.
      If you like to give it a try, I'm happy to hear your comments or suggestions for improvement. Eventually this will go in the module directory soon, too.
