Tips to prevent Instagram feed issues

To prevent having an empty Instagram feed on this section of your storefront, you should delete the Instagram feed section on any pages it appears within your theme by following these steps:

1. In your Admin, navigate to Online Store > Customize.
2. Locate the Instagram section within the Theme Editor.
3. Remove the Instagram section where it appears on all pages.

Newer versions of Broadcast will allow you to use any image you upload to your Shopify files as the reference photo. Older theme's use an Instagram image link which should continue to work. This feature has been decommissioned and we recommend moving forward that you update your theme to use a static image in the even Instagram changes share privileges.
