Instagram feed images not showing due to API change

Today, January 12, 2018, the Shopify community woke up to an issue with all Instagram Feed images not showing.
This is due to an Instagram API change, for instructions on how to fix this please view these instructions

Home page

Last Updated: Apr 24, 2017 03:47PM EDT

The icon themes home page is sectioned as of version 5.1 which means that instead of having 1 slideshow or 1 area for an image gallery you may now add multiple slideshows, multiple image galleries or repeat any content sections on your home page as part of a much more streamlined and simplified setup.


Slideshow - With 2 options for background or content style the each Slideshow can contain up to 5 images, each with their own unique title, caption and call to action buttons... each with it's own unique color scheme.

Image gallery - Image blocks which will show between 1-4 images each with size options ranging from 33% of the container width to 100%  
Recommended sizes:

  • when using 1 image: 1600 x 900px ( W x H )
  • when using 2 images: 900px x 600px ( W x H )
  • when using 3 images or more: 600px x 400px ( W x H )

Image with text overlay - Add a full width background image with parallax scrolling effects
For each image you can choose to add short text content or show the full content of a static page within your store.

Featured video - Simply paste the URL of a video on YouTube or Vimeo into this section to display that video at full screen on your home page.

Featured Collection - Choose a collection of product to show within either a grid layout or a carousel allowing left and right scrolling

Collection list - Choose a bunch of collections and show them in a grid of 2, 3 or 4 collections per row

Blog posts - Choose a blog from within your store and show between 2 - 8 of the most recent articles within

Instagram feed - show the 6 most recent images from your Instagram feed, add more feeds if you have more than 1 Instagram account. Need to retrieve your Instagram access token. Click here to generate one.

Social media - Show a small section of social icons to break up your home page content and bring attention to other methods that your customers can use to follow or interact with you.

Remember with a sectioned theme you can show each of the above more than once with different content within each of them
