Adding Instagram Handle to Author BioSOLVE
Sep 25, 2018 9:39 AM
Does anyone know if it's possible to add an instagram handle to an author bio? It's odd that Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ are all available but not Instagram. The company that created our template says it's not possible because those are set by HubSpot. Has anyone been able to figure out a workaround?

Unfortunately that company is right, Instagram isn't included in the default social media options on the author profile:
It's possible that a custom development job using HubL could be used to add these on the Post Template but it would be messy as you would need to add the Instagram accounts from somewhere other than the author details section and then use conditions to match the accounts to the author. I wouldn't recommend doing this.
Perhaps you could add this to the Ideas section as a recommendation to the Product team.
If this helped, please mark it as the solution to your question, thanks!

Hello HubSpot Community,
We had a similar requirement to show Instagram for Blog Author, and we found an alternate approach by creating a HubDB record and based on the author.slug fetching the Instagram URL from the HubDB and displaying it on front-end.
