How to use instagram for WRUW

#1 Post by diveboy » Mon Sep 18, 2017 9:49 pm

I use instagram alot these days and this is a quick way to use it for hosting your WRUW posts.

once your image is posted on instagram, open the web interface for and open your image in a new tab to get the URL, EG https://www.instagram.com/p/BZMqG7UjLZ9

using this site https://downloadgram.com/, enter the URL into the instagram box https://www.instagram.com/p/BZMqG7UjLZ9 and click download

wait for the green box to appear that says download, right click (or long hold) and copy the URL (copy link address)

click the add image button in the forum post, cut and paste the URL into it

[_img]https://scontent-lga3-1.cdninstagram.co ... n.jpg?dl=1[/_img]

delete the trailing '?dl=1' from the URL

[_img]https://scontent-lga3-1.cdninstagram.co ... 8144_n.jpg[/_img]

click Preview / Submit and your image will be posted in for the thread.
