Instagram is a great business tool for building brand awareness and showcasing your core values and company culture. This quick guide shows you how to display Instagram posts on your Ezweb123 site using the third party tool SnapWidget.
First up, head to SnapWidget and click ‘Get started’ from the top menu bar. A customisation panel will appear. You can display all posts from a certain Instagram account, or a specific hashtag. Choose how to display the posts – Grid (images only), Board (grid including text), Scrolling (scroll-able image bar), Slideshow or Map. Once you’re done, click ‘Get Widget’.
Copy the generated code from the box, then navigate to your site editor to embed the code. From the ‘Insert’ tab in the main toolbar, click ‘HTML Snippet’ from the left sidebar.
The snippet widget will appear on your page. To add the code, from the floating Editor box select the ‘Setup’ tab, paste the code and click ‘Apply’. If you see a popup asking to resize the widget automatically, click ‘Yes’ and save your changes. You can preview your widget by clicking ‘View my site’!

Dazzle your followers with videos, news feeds, slideshows and more as the HTML snippet widget becomes part of the blog tool.
For anyone unfamiliar with the HTML widget, it’s one of our most popular tools, which allows you to add bits of HTML code to your website.
So, say you want to embed a YouTube clip on a webpage, you would copy and paste the video code via the widget. Visitors can then view the clip without leaving the page.
Well, we’ve now integrated that into the blog, so you can share YouTube, SoundCloud, galleries etc…in your blog posts.
You can now access the ‘Page organiser’ by double clicking the menu. More convenient for editing and a great time saver.
And, add a new menu through ‘Insert’-> ‘Menu’.
Add Alt tags to image filled shapes
Due to popular demand, we’ve now enabled Alt tags to image fills. This means if you add an image to any shape, you can now include a nice little description explaining what the pic is all about.
This is also a big benefit for SEO and the ongoing battle for a place in search engine listings.
