Latest Instagram Posts Block

The Latest Instagram Posts Block lets you display your most recent images from Instagram on your site. The block update automatically updates when you post new images to Instagram.


The Latest Instagram Posts block is available on all Jetpack connected sites.

Adding the Latest Instagram Posts Block

You can add the Latest Instagram Posts block by searching and/or selecting it from the Jetpack section of the block selector:

See Jetpack Blocks for detailed instructions on adding blocks.

Configuring a Latest Instagram Posts Block

After adding the block, there will be a ‘Connect to Instagram’ button, which then opens up an Instagram log in window. After logging in, you’ll then need to click the Authorize button to allow Jetpack to be able to access your Instagram posts.

Block Settings

Every block has specific options in the editor sidebar in addition to the options found in the block toolbar. If you do not see the sidebar, click the ‘cog’ icon next to the Publish button.

Under Display Settings, you can modify the number of posts, number of columns and the amount of space between each image. Modifying the number of posts alters the number of images showing in this block.

The ‘Stack on mobile’ option determines whether or not each post (image) will display on it’s own line, or whether the columns you’ve pre-selected will remain, when viewing your posts from a mobile device.


The Advanced tab lets you add a CSS class to your block, allowing you to write custom CSS and style the block as you see fit.

Disconnect Instagram

If you want to disconnect Instagram, perhaps so you can connect a different Instagram account instead, log into your account and follow these steps:

  1. Go to My Site(s), and select the site you’re working on.
  2. Go to Tools → Marketing, and click the Connections tab.
  3. Locate Instagram in the Manage Connections section, and click the Disconnect button.
