I am not seeing a webparserdump.txt file in the skins folder or any folder inside of the skins folder. Sorry for asking such a rookie question.
No problem, it's OK to ask anything. The above code goes into a new .INI file you can create and edit via Notepad or any text editor you like. That file should be created inside a new folder you make within the skins folder. For example, it could go into, say, [YourSkinsFolder]\Instagram\Instagram.INI where you'd paste the above code. You'd Refresh All from the Rainmeter right click's context menu to see the new skin (which is basically an .INI file in a folder from the skins folder, like mentioned already), then load the new skin via the context menu, and see it at work. The WebParserDump.txt is created in your Instagram folder earlier once you uncomment the line I mentioned above via editing the .INI file again, followed by saving it in the editor, then right clicking the skin from your screen and choosing Refresh from its context menu.

Or, you could do it like here, if you prefer. Check the rest of the Rainmeter manual briefly to get familiar with the basic concepts.

Excellent. I don't know about Tiktok, but I posted some link about YT in my earlier replies, if that's what you need, of course.
