FAQ

What Socialmedia platform can be connected to the widget?

For now it`s Instagram. Later we plan on adding Twitter and other platforms.

I created hashtags but nothing is displaying on the site. Why?

Each hashtag when created has a checkbox to connect it with a gallery. If you forgot to do it when creating the hashtag,
you still can connect it by going to Hashtag stream and choosing the hashtag you need. Under the hashtag you’ll see in how many
galleries it’s used. (Ex. http://bit.ly/1Da4ubI). If 0, then press Change and check the galleries you need. (Ex. http://bit.ly/1c0mo6M)

Why my tagged photos do not show up in the Hashtag stream?

Instagram allows to collect photos only from public accounts. If the users account who tagged photos with your hashtag is a Private Account, those photos will not show up in your Hashtag stream

First of all, check if your account is public and try to tag a photo. Go to your Instagram account Settings > Private Account. If your photo shows up but other user photos dont, then all works perfect and their accounts are private. Dont worry, 90% users accounts are public anyway.

How many galleries I can make?

There are no limits on how many galleries you can make and no hashtag limits. However, there shouldn’t be more than 2 galleries on 1 page.

There are 2 types of galleries:

1) Galleries – used for different purposes and each gallery has it’s own customisation. They can be put anywhere on your website.Galleries – used for different purposes and each gallery has it’s own customisation. They can be put anywhere on your website.

2) Product galleries – (WE DO NOT YET HAVE A PRODUCT SYNCHRONISATION POSSIBILITY IN WP, HOWEVER, WE ARE WORKING ON IT) Single customisation for all galleries, unique product hashtags

Can I create hashtags in other languages besides english?

Currently you can make hashtags in any language except those which consist of hieroglyphs such as traditional Chinese

I moved from Shopify / SEOshop to WordPress / WooCommerce. How can I migrate my data from Socialphotos?

If you had only unique galleries then the migration is easy. Just install the plugin and paste the generated gallery HTML code into the plugins input field or any place on your website if you want to use the gallery in a more freestyle way e.g. on a separate page.

If, however, you had product galleries, you can`t migrate them because no product retrieving is possible yet. 🙁 The workaround is to create a gallery for each product and connect hashtags.
