What is your configuration? Are you using to show feed from your own account, celebrity account or a tag?

We are also having this problem, apparently Instagram has implemented restrictions, we are going to study the possible solutions, if we do not find we will develop a new option that requires tokens and credentials. For now we have contacted everyone involved with the project.

It was hard hard work, but we have a new version, you can update from the Joomla updater manager.
The new one has 2 important features:
1. Cache for 6 hours this will prevent IP Banning
2. Added request retries (8 times) to retry if instagram doesn't respond for some reason.

ENJOY...

Good job, now it's working properly.

I just add that, if the website uses cache, the module won't run, even after updating to the new version 2.4.0.

Then, it's perfect. Thanks for this useful free module.

We have no way of knowing why it doesn't work, you may have a conflict with another script. You can share the url where the module is published, as confidential if you prefer.

We are looking for the solution gentlemen, this is not easy, because just as we managed to bypass the limitations, the instagram developers also make those restrictions stronger every day.
In the case of dewilde86 we do not understand why the console shows Google url when anywhere in the code we call Google, perhaps there is another script conflict.

Try to uninstall everything, clear your cache files, if this doesn't work then we are facing a stronger restriction that we hope to resolve soon.

It's the same for me. I'm using Joomstagram to show a user feed. Currently it still shows text but not any of the pictures. I'm running version 2.4 of the extension and I've cleared browser and joomla cache multiple times.
Any suggestions?

This is the site in question: joomla.fswue.de/bilder

Hi,
I have now the same problem of "cur1ous". Before, the plugin was working properly, but today isn't showing any image. The browser console shows the error "net::ERR_BLOCKED_BY_RESPONSE" for all images, than the page isn't loading image despite the link seems correct (copying and pasting in another browser tab loads the image) and showing only the text of "alt" attribute for "img" html tag.

I'm running version 2.4 of the extension and I've cleared browser and joomla cache already.

Your demo page ( www.extensions.unitemplates.com/ ) seems to have the same problem, maybe it's a general problem.

Any suggestions of solution?

Hello cur1ous and carloscesar. We are currently finalizing a new version that has 2 options, javascript (the current one) and another on the server side which stores the data on your site so as not to request the images from Instagram on each page load. It is preconfigured to request new data 4 times a day (every 6 hours) to avoid bans (if they don't post often they can increase that). It will not require KEYS or Facebook Tokens, it will continue to work simply with only user or tag, only it will be faster with local files and lazy load. This version will be available today or in the next few days, as we are currently testing it on Joomla 4 and SP Page builder to be ready for production.

As for the error that is seen in the console, it is because Instagram has limited access to its images, that is why it cannot be loaded in IMG or IFRAME tags, we have contacted the developer of the Javascript library to see a solution to this trouble.

ANNOUNCEMENT: The new version that we created on the server side has problems obtaining data in some hostings, we are currently solving that and will work with the official Facebook API, We will completely remove the javascript library because Instagram is blocking the loading of images obtained arbitrarily . For those who use this module to show Tags, we are analyzing other APIs to see if it is possible, but unfortunately we will stop showing FEED of tags.

This module will not die and as always we will make its configuration as simple as possible.
