Setting Up and Installing Social Feed by POWR

You are here:

POWR Social Feed is the easy way to automatically show posts from social media on your website. Combine posts from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Vimeo, and more in a single gallery.

Connect a Feed

When you create a new Social Feed plugin, the first thing you’ll need to do is connect it to a social media account, so it knows what feed to display. If no feeds are connected, you’ll see a message covering your POWR Social Feed that says:

No feed connected. Connect a feed in the POWR Editor.

To connect a feed, open the POWR Editor and go to the Connect menu. You can connect to the following types of feeds:

  • Facebook – any event or business page. You cannot connect to a personal Facebook profile
  • Twitter – any @handle or #hashtag.
  • Instagram – any @user or #hashtag.
  • Pinterest – any Pinterest board.
  • YouTube – any user, channel, or playlist.
  • Vimeo – any user or channel.
  • Flickr – any Flickr account.
  • DailyMotion – any user.
  • RSS – any RSS feed.

Important: Your account needs to be set to public, or else POWR won’t be able to display your posts.
