    Hey
    So I’ve worked as a .net developer for decades, and I’ve developed an Instagram module - saw there wasn’t something available.
    I’m keen to see if this is something the community would be on.
    If you have seen elf sights Instagram model - well I’ve created virtually the same thing.
    Can be customized exactly like theirs , from colors to languages, slider to grid etc.
    I’m keen to know if it’s something I can market or if I’m just smoking my socks.
    I have a few bugs to iron out but kern to get it done and show it to the world ;)

      Hi Michael

      Great to read you're considering offering extensions! 

      As you already did, it is always good to check out any competition. In that respect, I would like to uncover 2 options that I know some of our community members use:

      I hope this gives input to find your sweet spot for your product :-)

        Mike, it would be great to have an option for something like this on the market. The problem we have had in the past is seeing something like this come on the market and then it is not well supported or maintained. Then when Instagram changes their API and/or publishing rules, anyone using the commercial extension finds themselves in a quandary. So, hopefully you can bring a viable option to market long term. My advice would be to price it to enable you to sustain it moving forward. ;-)

          Same advice as David on that one. I did build a few years back and Instagram integration in DNN for a specific client. In the same year after the job was done, it broke 3 times due to Instagram API changes.
