Shoppable Social Media Galleries by Sauce [snapppt_embed] Shortcode

The ‘snapppt_embed’ shortcode from the Shop-feed-for-instagram-by-snapppt plugin is used to embed a widget. This shortcode calls the ‘snapppt_embed_func’ function which generates a script tag. The function uses global options and shortcode attributes to define the widget’s type and account ID. If an account ID isn’t provided, an error message is displayed.

Shortcode: [snapppt_embed]


Here is a list of all possible snapppt_embed shortcode parameters and attributes:

  • embed_type – Determines the layout of the Instagram feed on the page
  • account_id – The unique identifier for the specific Instagram account

Examples and Usage

Basic example – The basic usage of the snapppt_embed shortcode requires an account ID parameter. This ID is unique to each Snapppt account and is necessary for the plugin to pull the correct Instagram feed. If no account ID is provided, an error message will be displayed.

[snapppt_embed account_id=12345 /]

Advanced examples – The snapppt_embed shortcode allows for additional customization through the embed_type parameter. This parameter changes the layout of the Instagram feed on your site. The default embed_type is ‘grid’, but you can change it to any other supported layout by Snapppt.

[snapppt_embed account_id=12345 embed_type=carousel /]

Additionally, you can combine multiple parameters to further customize the Instagram feed. In the following example, we’re using both the account_id and embed_type parameters to display a carousel layout for a specific Snapppt account.

[snapppt_embed account_id=12345 embed_type=carousel /]
