1. Instagram Widget Configuration

Most of our Shopify themes, there is a beautiful widget called Instagram Feed. To use this useful feature, you have to provide some of your Instagram information via Theme Settings, just like this:

(If you are using Fastor Theme, please watch Fastor Social Widgets Configuration)

Unfortunately, Instagram has just made some changes in their API so it can make the Instagram Feed stop working. 

This article is about to guide you how to get the right info of Instagram Client ID, Instagram Access Token and Instagram User ID

1. Instagram Client ID: 

Actually, this is optional and you can totally leave it blank :)

2. Instagram Access Token:

To get this, please go to http://instagram.pixelunion.net/ then click on Generate Access Token. You will be required to log into your Instagram account to process this. 

This tool does not have access to your Instagram tokens, nor does it intend to use them or your photos for any purpose.

3. Instagram User ID:

The Instagram User ID is the first part of the Access Token which is separated by a dot. For example if your access token is:

1212301594.c42ae93.648e5fee6axxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

then your Instagram User ID will be:

1212301594

4. How to setup the Color Swatches for custom colors?

If you want to setup swatches for custom colors, like this:


Please upload an image (50x50 pixels, PNG format) with the color you want into Assets


Please note that the image file name must match the color.

For example, if you have a color called 'Burgundy', then name your image burgundy.png (all characters must be in lower case)

If you have a color called 'Déjà Vu Blue', then name your image deja-vu-blue.png

Other example, if your color is 'Blue/Gray', then name your image blue-gray.png

Most simple example, if your color is 'Black', the name your image black.png

5. How to setup Advanced Group Filtering?

Here is the instruction of enabling Advanced Group Filtering


1. Define your groups. For example the groups are Size, Price, Color

2. In Admin Panel, export your products into a CSV file.

(If you are creating new products, you can skip this step)

3. Prepend all existing tags with what group you want them to be in, with the format Group_Tag Name

For example, we would have tags like Size_Small, Price_100$ - 200$, Color_Red ... and so on

The left side of the underscore is the group name, and the right side is the tag for the product. Spaces can be included on either side of the underscore

You can check example here http://monosnap.com/image/pQsdmx5gNYv1mlsCOMEdWEBLbqAHf9

4. Save your .csv file and import the products back into your store.

Make sure you check "Overwrite existing products that have the same handle" when uploading the file to prevent duplicate products from being created.

In case you have less products, you can do this manually by go to your products, one by one and editing the tags. This way you don't have to do "export/import"
