Instagram jQuery Search not showing anything

0 votes

I'm a newbie programmer and i've been reading the Instagram search tutorial over at EduVoyage ( Impressed by this, i've decided to try my hand at it to learn jquery and such. Problem is, I cant get his example to work. I've dumbed my app down and can get it to display the default "cat" search, but when i search on the web form, i get nothing. No errors, no results, nothing. I'm banging my head here trying to find out what I'm doing incorrectly. i know its probably something simple im missing, but any help is greatly appreciated.

Here is js code:

var Instagram = {};

(function () {
    function toScreen(photos) {
        $.each(, function (index, photo) {
            photo = "<div class='photo'>" +
                "<a href='" + + "' target='_blank'>" +
                "<img class='main' src='" + photo.images.low_resolution.url + "' width='250'  height='250' />" +
                "</a>" +
                "<img class='avatar' width='40' height='40' src='" + photo.user.profile_picture + "' />" +
                "<span class='heart'><strong>" + photo.likes.count + "</strong></span>" +

    function search(tag) {
        var url = "" + tag + "/media/recent?callback=?&amp;client_id=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"
        $.getJSON(url, toScreen);

    $(function () {
        $('form#search button').click(function () {
            var tag = $('').val();
    }); = search;

and the HTML

    <!DOCTYPE html>
<script src=''  type='text/javascript' charset='utf-8'></script><script src='javascripts/application.js' type='text/javascript' charset='utf-8'></script>
<link href="stylesheets/application.css" media="screen" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

    <div id='photos-wrap'>
      <form id='search'>
       <button type='submit' id='search-button' tabindex='2'>
         <span class='button-content'>Search</span>
     <div class='search-wrap'>
       <input class='search-tag' type='text' tabindex='1' />

The latest changes in Instagram has affected almost everyone using Instagram Feed on their website. There’s no CMS or website builder which can avoid the risk: WordPress, Shopify, Joomla, and other – if there’s any kind of Instagram integration into your website, it may have issues.

There’s good news for Instashow users, though! You can save the trouble and address support right away. We already have a solution for you, so don’t waste your time! And in case you have to deal with the problem on your own, we have come up with a list of main reasons why your Instagram feed is not working and provided simple and doable instructions for each case.
