Social Media Row

A row component which allows you to embed feeds from Flickr, Instagram, and/or Twitter. If multiple feeds are entered, the component will be shown as tabs.

How-To

  1. Add a new Visual Composer element and select Social Media Row

  3. For Twitter, enter the Twitter handle for the desired account to display.
  4. For Instagram, enter in a developer access token for the account. This needs to be registered on Instagram’s developer site. Follow the steps below to register for an access token:
    1. Log into https://www.instagram.com/developer/
    2. Click on Register Your Application
    3. Your Website: www.peace.edu

    12. The address bar in the browser should have a URL parameter called access_token, copy and paste that value
    13. This is the token to enter into the CMS
