please can someone help me!

What I have tried:

from InstagramAPI import InstagramAPI

InstagramAPI = InstagramAPI("myusername", "mypassword")
InstagramAPI.login()                        # login
mediaId = '1469246128528859780_1520706701'    
recipients = ["myotherusername"]                              
InstagramAPI.direct_share(mediaId, recipients, text='hello')

You need to look at the lines of code listed in the error messages. You have not shown either of them, but at a guess you are referring to a variable named position which has never been instantiated.
