Adding Photos/Videos To The Gallery
- Once you are connected to the Instagram account, you will see photos/videos populating in the tabs:
- @ => contents posted on your store's Instagram account
- #UGC => contents tagged to your store's Instagram account by customers
- Search => allows you to search for any contents based on hashtags posted

Adding The Instagram Feed Into Your Store
Once the gallery is populated, the Instagram widget will have to be added into the store for them to be showcased.
You can generate the widget snippet in the display widgets page of the dashboard: https://go.stamped.io/v3/#/settings/widgets/display/
Here are examples to the two styles of Instagram feed available:
- Product Specific Carousel: https://www.gatomall.com/products/goat-mug-16oz

Creating Multiple Galleries
- Should you wish for a widget to only showcase specific tagged contents, you can select the contents and use the mass select action to add them to a gallery:
- Once the gallery is named and created, you can add the following attribute to the widget snippet so that it will display contents that are added to the specific gallery by using its ID: data-instagram-gallery-id=" " You will find the ID in the "Add to gallery" section once it's created:
Tagging Posts as Featured
Posts which are tagged as featured will be showcased before the rest in the widget. Simply click on the star icon located below individual posts in the curation interface and ensure that the icon is highlighted:
Requesting Permission From User

Below is an example of how the permission request appears on the curation interface:
