My widget is not updating
I noticed that from some time my widget does not update. I posted several images on Instagram, but none of them appears in my widget…
Most probably you did not authorise our widget yet. There were some policy changes on Instagram side, that we had to adapt to LightWidget in order to continue providing our widgets.
In order to authorise our app you need to visit this link:
Click Login with Instagram button. Make sure that you are logged in with the Instagram account you created widget for. Instagram will show you a message where you have to grant access to our LightWidget app.
After that you will return to our homepage with example widget generated for your username.
You should not create new widget. All widgets created in the past (including upgraded widgets) will be authorised and will pull latest pictures as before.
Without authorisation your widget will stuck and will not pull new images. If you see “Authorisation pending” it means that your widget is not authorised yet.
