How do I embed my gallery?

I set up my gallery but no images appear!
Click the Reload Now button or refresh your browser (Ctrl + R) and your images will appear.
Why are there blank images in my gallery?
If images are deleted from Instagram, Instagram does not tell us that the image was deleted and it will show as blank in your gallery. You can either Hide the image or Remove it from your gallery (depending on your plan)
This could also be due to Instagram's changes as of April 2018. If you're sure the image has not been deleted, click the Refresh button on the gallery moderation page, wait a few minutes, refresh the web page, and your images should reappear. If you are asked to upgrade, email us instead.

Can I use custom CSS to further customize my gallery?
Yes! This is a feature reserved for users on the Business plan and accessible in the customization screen. Add custom CSS guide.
Why do you need all these permissions when installing the app?
We're working our best to grow Covet.pics into a workhorse of an app and that means adding new features. To add these new features, we need permissions that allow us to access certain data including customer and order information.
It's important to note that we cannot physically see this information and it is only accessed by our app's code. This information is not stored or used by us in any other way than for what the app is intended for.
These permissions are required to use our service.
I don't want to show all the images from my Instagram, can I choose which are shown and hidden?
Yes! When a gallery is created, choose whether to Approve All posts and hide the ones you don't like, or Hide All and then approve the posts you want to show. Check out our guide to learn more.
What's a Product Gallery and why do I need one?
Product galleries are product-specific galleries that automatically show a specific product on their product page. If you're tagging products in your main gallery, then creating a Product Gallery is easy because all you need to do is paste an extra code in your product.liquid file. Check out our guide on how to get set up with that.
Do I have to have to Connect to Instagram?
It doesn't actually matter which or whose Instagram you use to initially connect to Instagram, but it is required so that Covet.pics can establish an API connection with Instagram. You can pull from any username or hashtag that is public and do not need to pull from the account you used to connect with.
Why can't I see the buy functions on Instagram?
This is not possible. Instagram allows for posts to be pulled externally but it does not allow for a return call. That means that Covet.pics is designed to pull posts from Instagram and make those posts shoppable in Shopify, but not in Instagram.
My gallery is showing in a narrow format - why isn't it showing the right layout?
Sometimes themes actually limit the width of code and that forces the mobile view of Covet.pics - This typically happens when embedding the code in a Page. If this happens, you simply need to use a wide page template. Check out this article to find out how to add a full-width template to your Shopify account: Create a full-width page template
Error "The page you were looking for doesn't exist"
Clear your main browser's cache, restart the browser and try again. If that doesn't work, double check that your embed code is up-to-date in your theme's code.
How do refunds work?
If you are given a refund, it will be sent through Shopify's Billing system. Your refund will be sent to your Shopify account and is then managed by Shopify. It typically will stay as an App Credit and be applied to future app charges on your Shopify invoice. You can read more on Shopify's Help Center.
Do you have a partner or affiliate program?
Yes! You can read more about it and contact us regarding it by checking out this page.
