Changes to Instagram feeds in Themes

As of March 2nd, 2020, Instagram will be discontinuing its legacy API. This means that if you entered an Instagram access token to the "Instagram feed" section of the Theme Editor, then the Instagram feed will no longer display images after March 2nd. If you would still like an Instagram feed on your store you can use an Instagram feed app.

This change will not affect your other sales channels, like the Instagram Channel. Some Instagram feeds that have been installed via third party apps, rather than through the section your theme editor, may not be impacted and will continue to work.

To prevent this change from causing display issues on this section of your storefront, we recommend that you remove the Instagram section that is built into your theme.

How to remove the Instagram section

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes.
  2. Find the theme that you want to edit and click Customize.
  3. Locate the Instagram section within the Theme Editor.
