๐Ÿ’ฌ On Leaving Instagram

Replied to Chris Aldrich (BoffoSocko)

An interesting method of leaving Instagram. I still read content there, but I had usedย dsgnwrks-instagram-importerย by Justin Sternberg to rescue all of my Instagram posts back into my WordPress site since it gave me a huge amount of control over porting over the metadata as well. Iโ€™m noticing that the repository lists it with a warning โ€œThis plugin has been closed as of August 10, 2019 and is not available for download. Reason: Licensing/Trademark Violation.โ€ though I canโ€™t imagine what that would have been for unless Instagram is trying to nudge Justin out. (Thereโ€™s aย copy of the plugin on Githubย for those who may still want it.) Other than a small issue Iโ€™d seen with some emoji in Instagram, the plugin always worked like a charm for me.

I tried jtsternberg/DsgnWrks-Instagram-Importer, but the authentication process throws up an error. I would assume that may relate to the ‘violation’? Might need to try Keyring Social Importer.
