In this tutorial, we will show you how to set up your account, connect your Facebook account, as well as generate and display your Instagram stories.
To get started, first you will need to log in to your account, or if you do not have an account yet, click here to register and get started with EmbedStories.
*Before you begin, please make sure that your Instagram account is connected with a Facebook Page
Once you are logged in with your Instagram account, please follow these steps:
1. First, go to the "Social Accounts" section and click on the top right button "Add Account".
2. Next, connect with your Facebook account and provide the required permissions.
3. Then in Sources tab Select the Instagram account that you want to generate the stories from, and click on the Create widget button.
And that's it!
To display the stories widget on your website, just copy/paste the top-right code into the body section of your website.
Please note that once you connect your Facebook account only stories from the last 24 hours will get generated into the platform.
From this moment on, the system will be able to pull and automatically generate your new stories from your Instagram account and update them on your website. The auto-update time for pulling new stories with the Free plan is every 24 hours and with one of the paid plans is every 3 hours.
And if you are interested in uploading your old stories, please look into this article on how you can download them in a JSON file format and upload them into EmbedSocial:
