Timeframe options for scraping hashtags don't work

Closed

Overall, I like the reliability of this scraper. Scaping Instagram can be really tricky.

However, I experience the following problem: The timeframe options for scraping hastags (such as https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/hokarunning/) don't work.

No matter the timeframe option, I encountered the following 3 issues:

  • The recent posts are returned even if I am only interested in posts for the last year.
  • The scraping does not stop at the timepoint specfied.
  • Also the limit of posts to scrape beetween those time points is not working.

I am happy to share a link to a run for this API where I experienced these 3 issues.

Hi! Timeframe support will not be continued, please kindly consider to use https://apify.com/apify/instagram-hashtag-scraper as alternative with filtering out dataset by time range with external software (i.e. Google Sheets).
