I am trying to get the number of followers of an authenticated instagram user, the problem is that the instagram plugin is lacking this information, which I really believe I basic.
So now I think that my only solution is to use the API connector, I believe there is enough info to authenticate an user, but I couldn’t get enough info about getting the followers number.I am not a coder so I would appreciate a explanation of the workflow, I really don’t know how to handle the answer of the API
Is there anyway to do this without Blockspring? Just to confirm Blockspring does work if you wanna pay $15 per month, I’ve tried it! I’m just looking for a tutorial on maybe using the api connector to get the follow count of any username entered. I can get my follow count using an access_token generated, but sadly only mine lol!
Hi, I really like your approach to this issue.
Is it possible to include dynamic data instead of manually typing instagram URL? So, I basically ask my users to provide a link to their instagram pages and want to extract their followers count automatically with this API call. Obviously, manually typing all of the URLs is not scalable.
Appreciate the feedback.
Next it should automatically create a URL parameters header with a key. uncheck the private checkbox. Add a default instagram full path url with username in the Value field.
Here is my working example app for you to edit
If this doesn’t work can you send me a screenshot or temp access?
So I pasted the values you specified for the API call. That worked. But once I try making the call the follower count value doesn’t get extracted. The same thing happens with your example - I paste the account link and nothing happens, is this just me?
Alright, I finally figured it out. So apparently I put a slash at the end of the link and that screwed up the URL path, once I got rid of it - everything started working… This is huge fro my app, thanks a great deal!
Do you know if it’s also possible to do the same with other social networks (i.e. Facebook, Youtube, VK.com)?
