  • InstAholic Lite

    JED Logo

    InstAholic Lite has reached it's END-OF-LIFE cycle. With the change in Instagram's API requirements, this extension will no longer continue being developed. If you have a working Instagram API, it too will reach an End-of-Life! (Click for details)

    With this upgrade InstAholic Lite can once again offer 'Squared resolution' image sizing dispite Instagram's latest API that took it away. Isn't code great!

    With the increasing popularity of Instagram and now that their latest API has settled in, I'm bringing back InstAholic Lite. It's based on the jQuery script written byMichael Lynch and I've added a number of extra goodies.With the change in the new Instagram API you can no longer display images from hash tags or key search words (as was allowed in the past). Just a single Username feed based on the Access Token (required) you provide.

    Using InstAholic Lite is as easy as downloading and installing into your Joomla website. Once installed go to the module's General Settings tab and enter your Instagram Access Token (instructions) into the option box. At this point you'll want to assign this module to a FULL WIDTH module position or use the Joomla native 'loadposition' tag inside a content page. Make sure to publish and assign this module to a working module position & menu... DONE! Instant Instagram gallery within your Joomla website. Now you'll want to go back to the InstAholic Lite module settings and fine tune the available module options to meet your needs.

    *PLEASE NOTE: Instagram Lite allows you to show a total limit of 20 images based on the Instagram (Facebook) API restrictions.
    *COMPATIBILITY: InstAholic Lite works with all 'MODERN, MOST CURRENT VERSION' web browsers. Until Microsoft's IE10+ or their Edge browser undergoes an upgrade to fully support HTML5 and CSS3, I do not consider these browsers as, MODERN! As such InstAholic Lite may not display properly using these outdated browsers.

  • InstAholic Plus

    JED Logo

    InstAholic Plus has reached it's END-OF-LIFE cycle. With the change in Instagram's API requirements, this extension will no longer continue being developed. If you have a working Instagram API, it too will reach an End-of-Life! (Click for details)

    InstAholic PLUS is not an upgrade to it's brother InstAholic Lite but a newly designed Instagram username delivery extension for Joomla! There is so much being offered under the hood that regardless of your website design, InstAholic PLUS will fit in nicely. It's using the Masonry display engine that makes it crazy responsive without asking you to lift a finger! It will always look great regardless of what device you are viewing from... 24/7! Getting InstAholic PLUS up and running is as easy as obtaining the correct access code from your Instagram account (Click onto the link "Click for instructions on obtaining your Instagram Access Tokenram Access Token" below and follow the outlined instructions) and paste your Instagram Access Token into the module's option box. You'll want to choose a Module Position that your template supports, assign this module to an active menu, save your settings and you off and running... easy peasy!

    Don't forget to download and read through the PDF Documentations. It will guide you through all the different module settings and options as well as give you a number of Tips & Tricks to make your InstAholic PLUS as unique as your website. InstAholic PLUS is 100% free to download and use across as many Joomla! websites you have. No upsell, no trackbacks, no site registration... just 100% free! However, there is a catch. If you find InstAholic PLUS an amazing addition to your Joomla! website, pass along your personal review and rating. It's the only payment I accept!

    Click for instructions on obtaining your Instagram Access Token

    Scroll down this page to see a working demo displaying my personal Instagram feed. As you continue to scroll down through the images, new images will appear until you get to my very first Instagram post. Yes, InstAholic PLUS can do this because my account was approved by Instagram to be in the 'Live mode'. If you are in the default Instagram 'Sandbox mode', your Instagram feed limit will be 20 of your latest posts. Please, I did not make these rules! If Instagram does not approve your API feed to be in the 'Live mode', take your frustrations out on them... not me, this extension or in your Joomla! review & rating!

    PLEASE NOTE: You can only have ONE (1) published InstAholic Plus install per individual Joomla! page. In addition, it is strongly advised to position InstAholic Plus towards the bottom of your Joomla! page. Especially if you have a lot of Instagram posts. As stated above, as you scroll down the page, InstAholic Plus displays more of your Instagram posts.

  • Social Payment

    SocialPayment 450px

    Social Payment is one of those Joomla! 2.5 & 3.x extensions that bridges the gap between 'pay to see' or 'register to see' what you are promoting. With Social Payment your visitors will have access to your assigned link or URL as long as they post a social media message that you have pre-populated within the module settings. Once they post your message to either Twitter, Google+ or Facebook they will get access to the click-through link.

    Social Payment can be used as a way to gain access to a download, read more article or any special item you wish to promote. There is no need for your visitors to pre-register or make a payment to gain access. All they need to do is send out a social media message that you created within the module settings. This now becomes a win-win exchange. Your visitors get what you are promoting and you get the social media exposure!

    The module settings allow you to have all three social media outlets available to choose from or you can limit the selection to just one or two. Social Payment does not have a lot of options to pre-program. Just some basic requirements to fill-in and you are up and running! Social Payment is easy to use and a quick and effective way to promote your products.

    'CLICK HERE' for the download ZIP package (don't forget to un-zip this package. It contains both the Joomla 2.5 and 3.x releases) or follow the demo below.
