InstAholic Lite v3.0.7 upgrade is now available and still FREE!

With this upgrade InstAholic Lite can once again offer 'Squared resolution' image sizing despite Instagram's latest API that took this feature away. Isn't code great!

With the increasing popularity of Instagram and now that their latest API has settled in, I'm bringing back InstAholic Lite. It's based on the jQuery script written by Michael Lynch and I've added a number of extra goodies. With the change in the new Instagram API you can no longer display images from hash tags or key search words (as was allowed in the past). Just a single Username feed based on the Access Token (required) you provide.

Change log:
Current release v3.0.7 (Fixed internal Instagram link bug and added new 'Header font size' option).
Upgrade release v3.0.6 (Code housekeeping thanks to Stephan M.)
Upgrade release v3.0.5 (Updated lightbox to Fancybox3. Added six additional lightbox options supported by Fancybox3. Removed 'Show videos?' option. Videos added to timeline will automatically be included into the InstAholic Lite display feed. Per Instagram's API. Added new 'Date format' option. Now supporting M-D-Y, D-M-Y & Y-M-D options. Bug fix between video feed display & captions.).
Upgrade release v3.0.4 (Code update to support 'Squared' Instagram images)
Upgrade release v3.0.3 (Upgrade to support Instagram's latest API restrictions)
Upgrade release v3.0.2 (Bug fix displaying Instagram's video images)
Upgrade release v3.0.1 (Bug fix with Instagram's URL paths)
Initial release v3.0.0
