Social Feeds for Threads

Description

Best WordPress threads plugin that allows admin to display feeds from Threads, an Instagram app on your website using Threads official API.

Threads launched their API on June 18, 2024 and we have implemented their API in this plugin. You would need to create an App from your FB developer account here and select Threads API usecase.

Check out the live Demo here

Use the shortcode [fftmj_feeds] to load threads from the user you connect in settings.

By default the plugin displays only 5 posts per shortcode.

Note: This plugin uses Threads API which is just launched and might not have all the data available yet but you can get the enough data to display a feed of posts that link to your Threads posts and profile. We will update the plugin as soon as more data is available through Threads API.

Plugin requirements:
– Must use SSL – https.
– Might not work with localhost.

Reviews

This plugin works very well and with the lack of tools to display Threads feeds, I was very happy to find it. Read carefully the instructions to get your Threads numeric user ID and everything works out of the box. If you use custom CSS, the plugin is easy to customize.Kudos for the devs and thanks for the useful free version, helps to test and may be sufficient if displaying the 5 last posts suits your need.
