Add the ability to link your Instagram profile under settings/administrator.

What's wrong with adding a custom URL in the Site and copying and pasting your Instagram URL? The user settings/admin option makes the URL for you, BUT that option does NOT open the link in a new window. Currently, the three sections for FB, Twitter, and G+ will make links, but when adding the links via Site, they open the links in the SAME window. Unless that's what you want. I think, you'd want your potential clients to STAY at your website and any links should be open in a new window.

I have a client currently going through a rebrand and will eventually change the url for their Instagram account. Right now they are using a custom Url which is doing exactly that, problem is that if you have to change it, you can't edit it, you have to delete it and add it again which is a bit cumbersome (especially for non-technical users). The functionality of opening links in a new window is also a desired thing that I do too have for the profile links (e.g. FB, Twitter, and G+) in settings/administrator. I find it interesting that Instagram is missing from those options considering a lot of photographers use Instagram probably more than Twitter and Google+.

HI Trent,


I know about "non-technical" people and they drive me nuts. But I think that for the time being, you'll have to teach them that URL custom typing and editing method. Another method that's sure to work is buying the Instagram plugin for 25-30 USD. I don't remember the exact. I didn't buy it, because I don't use Instagram. From what I understand, buying that plugin will add the Instagram field in the Admin page and the user enters their name. In the Site panel, the ability to add the Instagram link will be via clicking on or off. Additionally, because it's a plugin, the user can cusomise via the Theme tab on the right side to import Instagram files into Koken Library and what not.


Don't fully quote me on this, but I read similar from other Koken users on how that Instagram plugin in the Koken Store works.

I don't use twitter or google+, I'm only on instagram and facebook. I would love the option to have this instagram link added. I understand you can add custom links but it appears at a different place on the site and not with the other social media links, and also not as an instagram icon. I would love to have this option.


I've looked at the instagram plugin, and it appears to only allow importing. I didn't see an option for adding the link.
