Embed the feed on your site

Spotlight offers different ways of displaying your feeds, with more options to come in the future.


From the Feed editor

The final step when adding or editing a feed is called Embed and provides you with a shortcode to use on any page or post once the feed is saved. Click on the Copy button to copy this shortcode to your clipboard and paste it anywhere on your site.

From the Feeds list

In the Spotlight Feeds list you will see a Copy shortcode option under Actions on the right-hand side. Click on this to copy the shortcode for a particular feed to your clipboard and paste it anywhere on your site.

Learn more about the Spotlight Shortcode.


Spotlight includes a widget of its own that can be used in any widget area on your WordPress site:

You can add the Spotlight Instagram Feed widget from Appearance > Widgets or from the Widgets section of the Customizer.

When using the Gutenberg block editor in WordPress, search for "Spotlight" or "Instagram" to find the Spotlight Instagram Feed block.

When you already have existing Instagram feeds set up, you will see a selection like the one below. When you have no Instagram feeds created, you will see a prompt to create your first one.

Elementor Widget [PRO]

If you're building your website with Elementor, Spotlight's premium version has its own widget that allows you to embed, edit, and create Instagram feeds directly within Elementor's editing experience. The preview will also display your feed to make sure you get the design looking right without any back and forth to preview the page.
