an essential plugin
By , for WP 3.8.2

I needed to publish by email in a simple way. I found a better option although the upload sometimes causes a conflict. It is an essential plugin.

Working Well
By , for WP 3.8.2

I have installed the plugin to use "posting by e-mail".
Tested it and it is working well, incl. photo upload.

Through another plugin, I have connected the pages posts to facebook, to be published there automatically. That is working well too with this plugin (so, when I email, it publishes to my website/blog plus to the fb page timeline).

That´s all I wanted, and it easily works plus offers different layout options.

It's hanging sometimes..
By , for WP 3.8.1

I was using it on Holi Festival 2014 and its working well most of the times. But sometimes, it hangs and won't load the dashboard exactly the way it should be. I don't know whether its a bug or my server issue. Otherwise its a great tool with lots of features.

Great for multiple features
By , for WP 3.8.1

I would give this 5 stars but the thing about connecting with wordpress.com is not cool. So, 4 stars.

As, the features like sharing do not require to be connected with wordpress.com. It would be great if this was independent without having to create a wordpress.com account just to use few features.

But overall does a great job for handling many functionality under one roof.

Perhaps in the future update, no wordpress.com connection required (being hopeful).....

Minor Annoyances
By , for WP 3.8.1

How do you rate a plugin as multifunctioned as Jetpack?

It nears perfection, but there are plenty of minor annoyances that continually chaff at you. Minor things, little things that feel like shortcuts or placeholders that turn a five minute job into an hour-long search.

One of those burrs that got stuck in my sock was the html code the Sharing module injects for custom services. It inserts inline CSS, setting the background image to the required icon.

<span style="background-image:url("http://flattr.com/_img/icons/flattr_logo_16.png");">Flattr</span>

Inline CSS. Sigh.

My text-only Sharing buttons were being trailed by a monstrosity—a tiling blob over which you couldn't read the text. I was shocked, I tell you, Shocked!

And now I have this ugly additional override in my child-theme CSS. Sitting there, all ugly and mean and sloppy.

li.share-custom span {
	background-image: none !important;

And it's just stuck there in my sock rubbing at blisters for the rest of my life.

And, also, it seems like I can only make one custom service, which is kinda lame.

Jetpack has multiple features, many of them near perfection, but since I can't give fractional stars, and near-perfection is not perfection, I have to give a solid four stars.

Use Jetpack, and be prepared to be annoyed.

Very Pleased with
By , for WP 3.7.1

Migrating from WP.com to a hosted blog so very happy to get many of the same features there. Was a little surprised a few components were on without asking and gave no choice.

I was also disappointed the RRS feed subscription and email subscription had different features and looks considering they're often placed together. The email one only offers an image caption, not a text link like the RSS. eh??

I also found the Widget Visibility bit either doesn't work correctly or is non-intuitive.

But overall, lots of great additions. Thanks!

EXCELLENT customer service
By , for WP 3.7.1

"Publicize" could be improved a bit in order to achieve perfection. It seems to be buggy now and then. Plus an easier solution to customize and properly align icons would be nice.

Jetpack does seem to make my website significantly slower, but installing all these important plugins separately, by separate developers would probably do the same. (?)

EXCELLENT customer service and quick and thorough response. They even provided solutions for a bug that came from my host and not their plugin.

Плагин хороший, но...
By , for WP 3.6.1

Плагин очень хороший и насыщенный. И к нему очень много дополнений. Но он намертво привязан к сайту wordpress.com , отклик от которого иногда приходится ждать минутами. Установил, попользовался и с сожалением отключил, потому что ждать полной загрузки сайта, которую тормозит этот плагин, никто не будет. Да и сам плагин не рекордсмен по скорости загрузки, надо сказать честно.
Если вас это не пугает - вперед, к приключениям.
