Adding your instagram feed

***LightWidget Instagram Feed Warning***

Unfortunately the free version of LightWidget for instagram feeds does not yet support SSL connections.

As Showit works toward integration of SSL for all of our sites, it's important to start removing any embed code that does not currently connect to their services via a secure httpS:// to avoid disruption for your site.

Replacement: We suggest replacing LightWidget instagram feeds with feeds.
