Instagram to Post

Summary

A custom WordPress plugin to catch incoming posts from IFTT and modify or update posts created.

Tools

Built for WordPress.

Challenges

IFTT was able to create new posts from an Instagram feed, but the post needed to be adjusted, the image needed to be uploaded to the media library, meta data added, and the image set as the featured image of the new post.

Successes

I was able to create a good, simple, plugin that catches the IFTT new post and performs the necessary modifications and adjustments.

Personal Notes

This request has come up before and I handled it in different ways. This project was good because I was able to clean up the solution and make it more reusable for future projects.
