Jetpack auto-activates new modules, without asking your permission. This plugin stops that.
My hosting company said Jetpack was constantly writing to the database, so they had to suspend my account to stabilize the server. Anyway, I hope this plugin stops Jetpack from adding service that may get my account suspended again.
Thanks so much for this plugin!
I use this on every site that has Jetpack. I especially like that you can install it before Jetpack to disable all modules, then you can manually activate only the ones you need.
Simply perfect. Thanks Mark!
By the way: love the banner graphics ;)
Jetpack is pretty much a love-hate affair: brilliant features, but utterly confusing (or even misleading) UX decisions.
Such as making it terribly easy to activate stuff without even noticing (by extending the activation area far beyond the "activate" button), and putting the "disable" button in a less-than-obvious location. In my book, those are crimes against elementary user experience rules.
Fortunately for us, Mark Jaquith does a great job in making Jetpack's behavior more reasonable, fixing those issues one by one (see also his aptly named Menu Humility plugin).
Mark, you're awesome! If only Automattic would make you Jetpack product leader. :)
Jetpack is annoying and awesome at the same time - which is weird because if Automattic wanted to be non-hypocritical, you could enable only the awesomeness.
Well, that's what this plugin does, and it does it well. Thank you Mark.
I use ManageWP to managed my client sites, and I've been avoiding updating Jetpack on those sites because I didn't want to have to go through each site and manually turn off all the new features. With Manual Control I don't have to do that.
