Martin,

Tried testing this weekend - seems like the " location URL(stories)" option was removed so I tried just doing "location URL (recent)". The downloaded images were all from posts and NOT stories. Did I set something up incorrectly? Which custom search selection is for stories?

Not sure if you knew about this, but it seems like the URLs are different for stories (the content which I'd like to scrape and download in stories) vs posts. Please note, the below URLs may not redirect properly... but if you look up new york the location you'll see stories posted which users tagged the location AND the posts with the location tagged as well. if you click in the stories in browser you'll see the content.

stories URL is:


and posts URL is

yes, ISG updated location response and stories are not working how they were, I haven't been able to automate the new method for stories yet

so currently you can NOT search location - stories

Acknowledged - I sent you the two different links which I'm not sure are helpful to you as you probably already know/ are aware.

Please let me know if you need me to do any more research or investigating.

I'll submit logs below, the location tag threw an error I think, may be useful for the investigation/fix:

It is saying the feed response contains illegal unicode. If that is the case, there is nothing that can be done, hopefully is just a caption and will pass

Was quite busy this past few weeks and saw a lot of updates, especially with critical changes to the processor.

Did the story location download get fixed? As a refresher since I know you're doing a million things Martin I'm trying to do the following:

1. Search instagram location
2. Download stories from users who posted they were at that location
