    Instagram get recent media for specific user

    Hi All,

    Was wondering if the Get Recent Media for specific user function below still works?

    I keep getting the error below

    This request requires scope=public_content, but this access token is not authorized with this scope. The user must re-authorize your application with scope=public_content to be granted this permissions.

    Any idea anyone?

    It should still work, but with some restrictions due to changes in the Instagram API (and their terms/privacy guidelines).

    By default, your Instagram app will work in a sandbox mode. You only have access to media of the sandbox users of your app, which again by default, is your self.

    If you wish to request media of other users, your app must be approved by Instagram to use the public_content scope, and the authenticated user must have granted this scope during login. If this is in place, it should work.

    I hope that answered your questions ;)

    Are there any tutorials or sample code for this?
