KnownInstagramShim

This is a Known plugin for properly setting syndication links on Instagram photos brought in via Micropub.

This is emphatically not a plugin for syndicating to Instagram. Instagram doesn't give out access to its publish API, so we have to fake it by posting to IG first and then reverse-syndicating via Micropub (e.g. with OwnYourGram). All this plugin does is see the incoming micropub post and set the URL so it shows up as a u-syndication property (which also helps Bridgy find it to backfeed likes and comments).

Installation

Download and place this plugin in IdnoPlugins/InstagramShim. It must be named InstagramShim (rather than KnownInstagramShim), or Known will not be able to find it.
