Filter Insta Results by tag w/ Social Feed Gallery

Occasionally I build websites for folks. Recently I’ve been replacing stale old static galleries with a slim WordPress plugin that sync’s a users’ feed to a local cache and formats it in a nice way for the visitor. Its easier to update for the client (if they have a smartphone) and the visitor doesn’t need to be ab Instagram user or have any knowledge of that site to view.

The plugin I use is Social Feed Gallery by Quadlayers. It breaks less than other plugins I’ve used in the past, most of the time it isn’t their fault. Instagram’s API seems to chop-and-change.

Anyway- this isn’t an advert. If you want to display a selection of your Instagram images on your WordPress website but you’d like to filter out certain images (I do this by way of a hashtag #nosync ) then add this script to your CSS:

[data-item*="no-sync"] {display: none!important;}

Remember to tag the relevant items #no-sync, then hit the ‘Cache’ refresh button in your Social Feed Gallery dashboard panel. As Steve would have said *boom*. Discovered this solution at Stack Exchange, full of helpful humans who still beat AI!
