Supercharge your WordPress site with powerful features previously only available to WordPress.com users.
For those of you doing eCommerce on WordPress -- save yourself 8hours and DON'T use Jetpack if you want you SSL certificate to actually work!
I had a bunch of problems getting the padlock to display on the interior pages of my site in Firefox even though in Chrome the padlock was always displayed. Same issue in Internet Explorer where that annoying bar would pop up saying "only displaying secure content" and then when you'd tell it to show everything the page still looked the same! :eek: We also couldn't get a redirect from within cPanel to function because of some "mystery" interference from my site. After reading all over the net about people with similar problems I found what seemed to fix everything.
One of the problems is "mixed content" (links to unencrypted images/scripts being sent out, etc.) which Firefox really frowns upon. Your padlock gets yanked on any page displaying "mixed content." Two things had to be taken off my pages:
#2 -- This one was a bigger deal: Jetpack
Having the stats feature is NOT worth it. I hope this helps someone down the line!
Great plugin, especially the stats charts, using it on my site. Would be great if some day there would be added some GA features like time on site or drop rate.
Jetpack is a great way to extend your blog lots of awesome features.
I am still exploring all the options but just being able to get basis stats, automatically post new blog posts to my Facebook account, and making it possible for readers of my blog site to subscribe to email notifications of new posts makes it a keeper in my book!
I feel powerful after installing Jetpack everytime. Thanks for this awesome plugin.
Like the different options that the jetpack provides I do wish you were able to turn some options off because I have my own responsive theme that I would like to use but I cant run Jetpack because of its theme
This plugin has lots of features which you can turn on/off and configure.
Therein lies the problem. Because it has so many modules (features) it contains lots of bugs.
If you ever have a problem with your WordPress.org blog this should be the FIRST plugin that you deactivate to see if it is the problem.
I don't use all the features but it does contain Vaultpress backups (not free), a Contact form, Custom CSS makes updating the theme's css a breeze and Facebook publishing works fairly well (sometimes it doesn't publish to fb and one has to reconnect it).
All in all I recommend it but with a warning that it conflicts frequently with other plugins. Automattic has continued to improve upon it and perhaps someday it will become a quality plugin or be integrated into the WordPress core files.
I loved Jetpack. The convenience of having all those features in one plug-in was fantastic. I also loved checking the stats everyday. Unlike Google Analytics, it was so easy to tell who was linking to my site each new day.
But yesterday, even my tiny blog received too many visitors (probably ~20 at one time) and the server response time shot up. I had an average load time of about 35 seconds, if the page loaded at all. It was a disaster.
A quick analysis by W3 Total Cache pointed out the offending plug-in: Jetpack.
Now that I've uninstalled, I'll have to find other, more stable plug-ins for site stats, subscriptions, sharing, and who knows what else.
I love Jetpackm, i have used it for couple of years and every time its an update i get very happy.
