Instagram Auto Post Restrictions
Instagram has strict requirements on what can be auto posted, which Planoly has no control over.

Content Restrictions
Please review Instagram's restrictions on auto posting: Auto-Posting to Instagram FAQ
* Most Portrait/Landscape images do not qualify for IG direct publishing.
* - Crop them more into a square, and they should be eligible for auto posting.
Multi-Carousel, and Stories do not auto post as well.

Previous posts scheduled before you enabled auto post will not directly publish to Instagram. You can simply go back to those scheduled posts and adjust the time +/- 1 minute for auto post to be enabled.
