    Where do I find the client ID and client secret so I can enable instagram for my members?

    1. ProfileGrid

      You may get this from API settings on Instagram.

        Will this API be for my own personal Instagram?
        I don’t want my own Instagram showing on all my members profiles.

        1. ProfileGrid

          This will not display your Instagram ID on user profiles.
