Authorising Instagram


I’m trying to activate the Moesia FP: Instagram widget, but when I click the link to get the User ID and secret I get:
{“error_type”: “OAuthForbiddenException”, “error_message”: “You are not a sandbox user of this client”, “code”: 403}

I did see another post about this error but that was regarding a re-authorisation and the link in the answer requires the Instagram Client ID which I don’t have.

Please advise, thanks

Hello Ian,

Did you visit the link in widget settings to get your User ID and Access Token?

Kind Regards, Roman.

Hi Roman,

Do you mean this link:

To authorize the app for Instagram and get your User ID and Acces Token, go here

If you do that is the one I’m reporting doesn’t work



If the link doesn’t work for you, you can obtain the required data in another way:

  1. Go here and generate your access token.
  2. Go here and get your User ID.
  3. Add them in the widget and select the number of images you want to display.
