How plugin works
You create Instagram galleries in Grace WP admin and copy generated shortcodes. Then you put these shortcodes on any page of your WordPress site. When the feed gallery is shown first time, it’s got cached (takes more time for initial caching but then it will show blazingly fast) and rest of visitors see this cache for cache lifetime. So, for example if you have set 20 min cache and 10000 users visit your site within these 20 min, it’s only one time plugin will request API to pull data, for the rest of time users will see cached data almost instantly. Considering that server runs cache renew task in background it guarantees plugin’s amazing performance.
How multiple Instagram feeds work
First of all, you can create multiple Instagram galleries (streams). The only possible limit is your server capacity. The magic thing is that you then add as much Instagram feeds as you want. For example, you want to include in one stream 3 Instagram accounts, 1 hashtag, 2 likes feed and 1 Instagram location. No problem!
Admin panel provides clear indication of important stuff and is very convenient. You can easily manage your Instagram galleries from one compact list.
Instagram feed frontend sorting
Sorting is optional feature of Grace. If you would like to use plugin with many different feeds this feature could be handy. You can provide useful feeds sorting tool for visitors of your website.
