I’m Iain Poulson, Founder of Intagrate
I’m a WordPress developer and business owner based in England, with over 12 years development experience and in the WordPress business since 2011. Over 30,000 websites have used my WordPress plugins.
As a developer, I have worked with some of the biggest WordPress plugin businesses around, like Delicious Brains (the makers of WP Migrate DB Pro and SpinupWP) and Saturday Drive (the makers of Ninja Forms).
I enjoy blogging and talking about WordPress (I co-host the Pressing Matters podcast), as well as organizing my local WordPress meetup.
I love being part of the WordPress community ❤️
The Story behind Intagrate
In 2011, my girlfriend (who’s now my wife) and I moved to London from the South of England. As we both weren’t on Facebook, to keep our families up to date with what we were getting up to, I set up a simple website so we could share photos. Of course, with WordPress.
Around that time my wife really got the Instagram bug, and she found herself wanting to post her Instagram images on our blog. After manually doing this for a while, she asked me if there was anything that could do it automatically. Surprisingly I couldn’t find anything, and after a few weeks of her asking, I decided to sit down and build something.
That was New Years Day 2012, and days later I officially released the free version Intagrate Lite on the wordpress.org plugin repository. To my amazement, other people used and loved the plugin, enabling them to create a new post automatically when they posted to Instagram, as well as saving the image to their WordPress media library as a form of backup and owning your own data.
In June of 2012, I released the pro version and fast forward to today and it’s still going strong. Lots of things have changed in WordPress and with the Instagram (now owned by Facebook) API, but Intagrate continues to do what it does best, automatically post Instagram images to WordPress.
