Module: Instagram Feed

Recommended Posts

I kept running into the issue of self-invalidating access tokens and wanted the site's content editors to be able to handle the generation of new access tokens themselves. The module, however, limits those functions to superusers.

Could you change the module to check for the module-admin permission? It's ProcessWire's internal permission to check who can edit module configurations. It's deactivated by default and has to be created and assigned manually, so there's no additional risk or security concern. On a standard PW installation, it still only applies to superusers. However, it gives people the possibility to allow editors to generate access tokens.

So instead of

if ($this->user->isSuperuser()) {
  $href = self::API_URL_AUTHORIZE . '?' . http_build_query($request);
  $link = "<a href='$href'>" . __('get Access Token') . "</a>";
}

it's

if ($this->user->isSuperuser() || $this->user->hasPermission('module-admin')) {
  $href = self::API_URL_AUTHORIZE . '?' . http_build_query($request);
  $link = "<a href='$href'>" . __('get Access Token') . "</a>";
}

(There's a second check somewhere further down).

Thanks for considering this. I forked the module for now, but would much rather like this to be incorporated into master.

What is the recommedned way of getting another user's recently images? Am I right in saying in sandbox mode only the dev user can display their content, so it's needed to use the profile's account to setup the dev tokens etc, or is there a way of adding another username to the sandbox so I can query their images...

Bit confusing sorry, but I can only display my own images currently, no matter what I add to the module options.

To save myself from the headaches, I only use scrapers anymore. No sandboxed accounts, no setup, no invalidated keys every two weeks. instagram-php-scraper has been working great so far. This is all there is to getting recent media of any user id or name:

$userid = env('INSTAGRAM_USER_ID');

$instagram = new \InstagramScraper\Instagram();
$account = $instagram->getAccountById($userid);
$username = $account->getUsername();
$latestMedia = $instagram->getMedias($username, 10);

foreach ($latestMedia as $media) {
	if ($media->getType() === 'image') {
		[...]
	}
}

@d'Hinnisdaël holy smokes, so shocking to me that their APi is so bad that we have to resort to this sort of thing 😦

True. Many of the recent API updates are about privacy, which is a good thing. But the rollout was more than ideal. And I'd love to go the official way and use their API. But I get emails from clients every other week, asking about invalidated API tokens after they log in from a hotel wifi. And setting up API tokens is quite the hassle. So yeah, it's scrapers for now…

To continuously improve Instagram users' privacy and security, we are accelerating the deprecation of Instagram API Platform, making the following changes effective immediately. We understand that this may affect your business or services, and we appreciate your support in keeping our platform secure.

These capabilities will be disabled immediately (previously set for July 31, 2018 or December 11, 2018 deprecation). The following will be deprecated according to the timeline we shared previously:

  • Public Content - all remaining capabilities to read public media on a user's behalf on December 11, 2018
  • Basic - to read a user’s own profile info and media in early 2020

For your reference, information on the new Instagram Graph API.

Just seen this on the instagram developer portal. I had a quick play with the facebook API explorer but couldn't get it to work as wanted (just display another user's profile image). Think we'll need to get going with this as instagram is stopping support for it's own API 😦

If someone has issues with generating an access token, I now have learned that it is important to include a language with the request for the access token:

https://www.instagram.com/oauth/authorize/?client_id=YOUR_CLIENT_ID&redirect_uri=http://page.dev/processwire/module/edit?name=InstagramFeed/&response_type=token&scope=public_content&hl=en

Source: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/55449162/https-api-instagram-com-oauth-authorize-api-login-error

So inside the "InstagramFeed.module", you should add 'hl' => 'en' in line 385:

<?php

$request = array(
    'client_id' => $this->clientId,
    'redirect_uri' => $redirect,
    'response_type' => 'code',
    'scope' => 'public_content',
    'hl' => 'en'
);

Regards, Andreas

Has nobody the same problem with this module? I think instagram changed the Api or something?

I used this to get the access token:

https://api.instagram.com/oauth/authorize/?client_id=CLIENT-ID&redirect_uri=https://www.yourdomainhere.co.uk/processwire/module/edit?name=InstagramFeed&response_type=code

1. Replace CLIENT-ID with your own CLIENT-ID code
2. I removed the trailing slash off suggested code on Processwire Module instructions

http://page.dev/processwire/module/edit?name=InstagramFeed/

Works OK for me, but I am getting error code "[InstagramFeed]: No user" too, but otherwise feed working OK.

For some reason the instructions above were not working for me. After some googling I found this tool https://instagram.pixelunion.net/.
f you're comfortable with trusting them, it works perfectly.

After a little tweaking, I was able to get the access token back from Instagram. Using the post by @AndZyk as a starting point, I removed the following line from the module code:

'scope' => 'public_content'

Instagram returned the access token successfully.

      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.
