Facebook and/or Instagram feed on a Webflow site?


#1

Hellu!

Has anyone on this board who incorporated a Facebook or/and Instagram feed into their website?
I've got a couple of requests from my clients regarding that service but my programming and knowledge is somewhat restricted...

Read a few words about the Facebook feed on https://developers.facebook.com/docs/public_feed and it states that you need a HTTPS end-point.....eh? Que?

Anyone with a thought or two about this is highly appreciated!

Cheers

It's difficult if not impossible to access Facebook without https... as the feeds they generate not only pull info but also connect the visitor to facebook (allowing him to comment), it makes sense that it's required to provide an https host. Doesn't it?

I read that at best it's a user setting.

Yes it makes sense. Does that apply for an Instagram feed as well?


#4

I don't know but I'd be happy to read your best practice when you've done it... I'll have to work on IG integration in a couple of months.

has anyone done this yet? I am interested in this as well @vincent @stevenp

Nope, I haven't tried it :confused:

Hello, guys!

Facebook feed is possible to add to the site, but there is a limitation, that it only works with public pages/groups, not private accounts.

Also, here is a site with bunch of jQuery plugins, which you can instal to your site. Some of them have even free versions.
https://www.powr.io/plugins

You can find there Facebook feed and Instagram feed.
Here is how would look like my public Facebook page feed in free version : https://www.powr.io/plugins/facebook-feed/view?id=2831909&mode=page
