    I don't remember, I removed everything.

    Question: shouldn't the script have an access token variable for recent media??
    Yes, as I remember. All queries for Instagram depend on token.

      Its working now. The client's profile was set to private.

      The Russian site i saw must have been a default or something.

        Would love to see this working on Evolution.

        I'm getting:
        Error : 
        failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 404 NOT FOUND
          Evolution user, I like the back-end speed and simplicity smiley

          Thanks so much for this. How would you go about getting the caption for the image with this snippet?

            I was not able to get a response with just a client ID, an access token was required. I found a fairly painless way to get my client ID (remember we need the numeric client ID) and an access token from the tutorial here:

            It had an automated generator for both.

            You can then modify the snippet InstaRecentMedia to:
            $json = file_get_contents('https://api.instagram.com/v1/users/'. $user_id .'/media/recent/?access_token=' . $access_token . '&count=' . $count);
            $decode = json_decode($json, true);
            $output = '';
            foreach ($decode['data'] as $post) {
                $output .= $modx->getChunk($tpl,
                        'link'      => $post['link'],
                        'image'     => $post['images']['standard_resolution']['url'],
                        'thumbnail' => $post['images']['thumbnail']['url'],
                        'comments'  => $post['comments']['count'],
                        'likes'     => $post['likes']['count'],
                        'caption'   => $post['caption']['text']
            return $output;

            And in your document use:
              &user_id=`_NUMERIC USER ID_`
              &access_token=`_YOUR ACCESS TOKEN_`
              &count=`_HOW MANY ARTICLE WE WANT TO GET_`

              I can't get anything to display. I tested with my https://api.instagram.com/v1/users/*****/media/recent/?access_token=2******&count=6 and it posts back data but nothing in modx.
