How to stop Instagram Block From Pulling in Insta Reels

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.alexiasbridal.com

Hello, I have a social block on my website that has been pulling in my Instagram feed for years.  We have started adding Reels to our Instagram account and now Squarespace is pulling them into our block as well. I only want to populate my website with our Instagram Feed posts, NOT Instagram Reels.  Is there a way to custom code for Squarespace not to pull in Reels?  Thanks for any assistance.

You could prevent the videos from looking like videos (make them look like standard Insta posts) by hiding the 'play' icon and preventing users playing the videos. This would maintain the continuity of the Instagram feed so that users (who are familiar with your Insta feed) don't think posts are missing.

You could achieve this by adding something like this to Design > Custom CSS:

.instagram-block .sqs-video-wrapper {
  pointer-events: none;
}
.instagram-block .sqs-video-wrapper .sqs-video-icon {
  display: none;
}

For example:
