  1. Any idea how to implement these cool plugins into an eCommerce site like Opencart, instead of WordPress. We have a great following on instagram for our site, http://www.newtress.com/extensions, but no idea how to make this work within an eCommerce platform.

  2. Yeah, it’s the era of Instagram ;) The industry of its supplementary apps and plugins growth so fast
