This endpoint has been retired – Instagram API

Looking in on a customers website I was hit with a dialog box stating “This endpoint has been retired”. Not sure what to do I Googled it and found the following article.

I was using a Instagram module, and sure enough it was broken. I now need to go back to the customer to ask for more money to fix it. These API’s make it awesome to pull Social Media; however, I wish the Social Media Platforms could standardize and make it easier for a developers reputation. I like asking for money, but hate having to do because something put in place 6 months before is now broken.

I hope this helps someone else out there…
