How to Add Follow Me Instagram Button

  • I noticed with the theme example, under the “display your Instagram” widget there is a blue instagram follow me button, how can I add that to my blog?

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)

  • Hi there!

    You’ve got a good eye. That footer in the screenshot I just realize is from the self-hosted version of the theme and is using a different plugin than was is available on
    However, I can help you recreate it! It won’t sit right under your IG images properly until you’ve added more images to your account though.

    Here’s what to do:

    1. Add a “Custom HTML” widget before the “Follow Button” widget in your dashboard.
    2. Add the following HTML to that new widget:

    Follow me

    3. Add the following CSS to your Customize > CSS menu:

    /* Custom IG Follow button */
      text-align: center;
    .ig-follow-button a {
      background: #5280a5;
      color: #fff;
      border-radius: 3px;
      padding: 10px 20px;
    .ig-follow-button a:before{
      content: '\f16d';
      font-family: "FontAwesome";
      speak: none;
      line-height: 1;
      -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
      -moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;
      font-size: 16px;
      padding-right: 5px;

    Let me know if that worked for you!
