Incompatible and intrusive
By , for WP 3.5.1

This article says it all, and in addition, there are unmentioned incompatibilities with the themes I use and rely on. But the real problem is that JetPack is intrusive: it takes over entirely too much of my WordPress installation. Learn a little humility, people! The WordPress ecosystem doesn't belong exclusively to you. Play well with others, or go home.

I hate the subscribe to comments module
By , for WP 3.5

I noticed that a lot of WP sites I visit use now the Jetpack "subscribe to comments" module. As you need to confirm EACH TIME your subscription with clicking on a link sent by mail, it's just boring. Imagine this feature in Facebook...

Extensions are nice, but support is terrible!
By , for WP 3.5

The idea for the extensions are nice, but the actual use is terrible!

  1. Some just break for no reason at times because they have to contact wordpress to work.
  2. The plugin automatically activates many features on it's own requiring manual deactivation (because obviously everyone likes every feature)
  3. The plugin adds a damn smiley face under the footer, pushing it up, requiring us to check a box to make it not appear (somehow that isn't automatically set?! <edited> brilliant.)

The ideas for some of the stuff is nice, it's implementation is terrible though. I mean, really, it should not automatically expect us to want some of the shit features, and the things that SHOULD be automatically set, aren't.

All images when selected display a black screen - the upgrade broke carousel for most themes. : (

FATAL ERROR
By , for WP 3.5

Well, brilliant. The previous version of Jetpack worked just fine. After updating I get:

Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context in <path to jetpack.php> on line 688

Seeing all the other comments about load times, perhaps I shouldn't bother.

Increases pageload dramatically
By , for WP 3.5

My default loadtime is around .7 to .9 seconds. Just activating this plugin increased my loadtime to a 2.5 to 3.2 seconds. I wanted to try out the latest features but because they looked very decent, but no plugin is worth this much performance loss.

Great plug-in - in theory only
By , for WP 3.5

Great plug-in IN THEORY.

In practice, it's full of bugs (and the international versions are worse).

I wish they would fix existing bugs instead of adding new features.
