How to Set Up an Instagram Landing Page

If you’d like to add a custom page to link to on Instagram like on the demo site, here is how to build it!

Create the Instagram landing page

  • In the Admin Dashboard, go to Pages > Add New.
  • Give a name to your page, but you don’t need to add any content.
  • On the right side, in the Settings panel, change the Template from Default Template to Instagram.
  • Publish the page.

Add Content to your Instagram Landing Page

Now that your page is created, you can go to it to view it. It will be empty.

  • While viewing your new Instagram page, click on Customize to open the Customizer.
  • In the Customizer, go to Widgets > Instagram Landing Page.
  • Add a Navigation Menu widget (you can create a custom menu to add in this spot).
  • Add a Simple Social Icons widget.
  • Add a WordPress Popular Posts widget. (Find the plugin here) To make it look like the demo, here are the settings to use:
    • Check “Shorten Titles” and set it to 50 characters.
    • Check “Display Post Thumbnail” and set it to “Set size manually” to 620px wide and 360px high.
    • For the theme, select “None”.
    • Don’t check anything else.
