Instagram for Elementor free version adds 4 new components to Elementor which will allow you to follow your favorite’ User Accounts / Hashtags / Locations’, optimize the time spent collecting information for your competitive intelligence and assess the relevance of the choice of your hashtags .
The collection of posts is anonymous and does not require identification.

  • Powerful search engine (Search Feeds)
  • Display the posts of a user account (User Account Feeds)
  • Display the posts associated with a Hashtag (Explore Hashtag Feeds)
  • Display the posts of a location (Location Feeds)

To date (03/12/2021) the ‘Search’ and ‘User account’ components are again inaccessible due to new restrictions of the Instagram API.


  • Create, for each component, its own list that you wish to follow (Marketting, etc.)
  • Retrieve a user’s id by username
  • The pictograms of the images display their own content. Ex: The last 50 likes
  • Display Mentions or Hashtags cloud
  • All images and content are displayed in a fancy box (See credit)
  • Tons of other settings to configure each post as well as the overall rendering
