New Instagram posts don’t display in the my Instagram Widget WordPress plugin
If new images don’t display in your widget right away, the most likely reason for this is plugin’s cache. Your widget takes the data from the cache which hasn’t expired yet.
Our plugin uses cache to make it load faster and to reduce the server load, so it doesn’t request Instagram each time someone browses your feed. Instead, it requests Instagram once in every 3 hours, pulls in the images by the specified criteria, stores them in the cache, and displays them from the cache. After the cache is expired, the widget requests Instagram for the images again, and that’s when the new ones make it to your feed.
