Instagram Widget Stopped Working? Here’s the fix

Most probably, today you might have noticed that your Instagram Widget has stopped working on your website and returns an error. Here’s an example:

Instagram Widget misconfigured, check plugin & widget settings.

If you’re not sure, you might want to check your website, just in case.

This issue is caused by the latest changes from the Instagram API and it affects the users of our WPZOOM Social Feed Widget.

The remaining Instagram Legacy API permission (“Basic Permission”) was disabled on June 29, 2020. As of June 29, third-party apps no longer have access to the Legacy API.

Meet the Remote Workplaces of the WPZOOM Team

Written by Ina Morosanu on in News 0 comments

The world turned upside down lately, forcing the majority of people to work from their homes. For the WPZOOM team, working remotely is not something new. Some of our team members have been working remotely since they joined us, others had the experience of both working from home and from the office (hello, Pavel). However, we’ve gone completely remote, without an office, approximately 6 months ago. We’re feeling great and are super-grateful to have already been adjusted to this before the quarantine.

Following the examples of other teams — feel free to consider this a challenge — we thought it would be awesome to share photos of our workplaces. Meet the small corners from where all the WPZOOM magic happens: new theme ideas and development, updates, blog posts, customer support, newsletters and so on. All of it for making your WordPress experience as easy and awesome as possible!
