With EmbedFeed you have the option to embed an entire Instagram feed from a specific hashtag on any website and moderate to showcase only the desired posts.

This is an interesting functionality for organizing campaigns or contests that have the goal of engaging Instagram users by inspiring them to post photos or videos using a specific hashtag.

The option to display this content on a brand’s website helps companies to broaden their reach and also provides a transparent view of the engagement on particular photos if a winner needs to be selected.

Related to this, sometimes moderation is required in order to display only the content that complies with the campaign rules.

Here are the steps on how to moderate the posts in your Instagram hashtag feeds.

First, login to your EmbedFeed account and open the hashtag widget from Social Feeds

If you still don't have an EmbedFeed account, click to start a 7-day trial.

To moderate the posts in your feed before they appear on your website, on the settings on the left side of the widget turn off the button for the "Auto add new posts in widget" section:

Click General, then click Auto add new posts,

This way the posts will continue to update but not on the live version of the widget embedded on your website.

They will update in the Moderation tab in the EmbedFeed dashboard and will be unselected.

So to approve them and display them on the live widget on your website, head over to the Moderation tab and just select the posts that you want to include.

That's it!
