Hashtag filtering is a Spotlight Pro feature that gives you the option to include posts in or exclude posts from your website's Instagram feed based on the posts' caption containing a specific hashtag.
For example, you can filter your own feed to only include posts with #portfolio to create a feed that displays posts about your portfolio of work.
Here's how to use hashtag filtering:
- When creating or editing a feed, go to the Filter step.
- In the sidebar, you will see a section titled Hashtag filtering.
- Enter a hashtag that you want to filter by in the respective option (show or hide) and press enter.
- The live preview will then be automatically updated with posts that meet these criteria.
Note: Each filtering method also has an option beneath it called Include global filters. When checked, the Global Filters from Spotlight are also applied to the feed being edited, and vice-versa. You can also Edit global filters directly within the feed editor.
