Embedding Instagram profile onto user profiles

I have tried following this awesome tutorial from @dcoletta , but it doesn’t seem to be working anymore.

Any suggestions on the best workaround to generate a custom embed code based on a user’s Instagram handle? Wondering if Instagram updated their embed code after this tutorial was originally posted.

Thank you!

Hi @ParkAmstutz and welcome to the community!

I just took a quick look, and I don’t see a problem where I am using the embed.

Can you post more details of what you did and what seems to be the trouble?

Thanks much, David! I appreciate it.

Below is a screenshot of both my AirTable and website when the formula is embedded.

When I swap out the embed code in the formula column for code copied directly from Instagram, the embed seems to populate fine.

A little stumped as to what is causing it. I’m currently using the “List details page with video” block with everything hidden except an embed field.

Thanks @dcoletta !

Could it be a typo in the formula in airtable?

Did a bit more digging and it looks like the embed code on Unlock-Softr has a couple minor issues. The second reference to Instagram inside the IF statement has double quotes instead of single, which breaks the URL.

After adjusting that it still wasn’t working, so I used it as a reference and rewrote it with the embed code copied from Instagram and it seems to be working. I have almost zero HTML/JS knowledge and did this in TextEdit, so jury is still out if this is the correct way to share.

Are there any other considerations here with respect to sizing / margins, etc?
I can’t seem to get this to work using the code and flow you’ve described.
Inspecting the code, I’m getting:
DevTools failed to load source map: Could not load content for https://assets.softr-files.com/libs/iframe-resizer/4.2.11/iframeResizer.contentWindow.map: HTTP error: status code 403, net::ERR_HTTP_RESPONSE_CODE_FAILURE

@brendan do you have a page to share ?

I deleted the code and went back to the original because it wasn’t working, but would love to know how to embed if possible. Here were the errors from console:

"A page or script is accessing at least one of navigator.userAgent, navigator.appVersion, and navigator.platform. Starting in Chrome 101, the amount of information available in the User Agent string will be reduced.

To fix this issue, replace the usage of navigator.userAgent, navigator.appVersion, and navigator.platform with feature detection, progressive enhancement, or migrate to navigator.userAgentData.

Note that for performance reasons, only the first access to one of the properties is shown."
