Web-Dorado has announced the launch of WordPress Instagram Feed WD plugin. The new contemporary WordPress plugin is an addition to Web-Dorado’s collection of 17 WordPress plugins. The plugin is claimed to be the most advanced and user-friendly Instagram instrument in WordPress directory.

I had the privilege to test this plugin couple of weeks ago, when it still was in the process of development. After testing out the most popular plugins with the aids to showcase Instagram feed, I came to the conclusion that this guy is the most advanced Instagram Feed plugin available in WordPress directory. Yet not necessarily difficult in terms of user friendliness. Moreover, it was the simplicity that captured my interest. First of all I liked the clarity of the back end of the plugin; same is true for shelf sorting of the data both in the code and back-end interface. With options created in a simple and clear manner, short comments and notes explaining functionality of options, icons and preview options of gallery view modes, this fellow is going to help everyone, including newbies and professional users.

Besides that, users are able to organize the feed in different modes, including random feed, where images are sorted randomly, based on number of likes or comments and sort images by date.
