Great Plugin!

This is awesome.

One request, please get all the Jetpack modules!

Some functions ok, like carousel, but so many other issues
By , for WP 3.8.3

Huge struggle with knock on bugs within the Moka Theme from Elma studio. Infinite scroll was didn't fire. Javascript errors killed Flexslider and the tiled mosaic galleries didn't conform to container size on initiation.

Nice idea, a light version of Jetpack, it certainly drew me in; but cannot recommend this to anyone due to the numerous issues and wasted time faced.

Fresh install of the Full Fat Jetpack fixed all issues.

Needs update (missing modules?)
By , for WP 3.8.1

Appears to work, and no nagging.

But instructions suggested(?) that deleting or uploading separate modules would work, which seems important because the listing of modules included here do not match those included in the current version of nag-fest-extraordinaire plugin, Jetpack.

However, the Slim interface doesn't seem to update, with modules added (via ftp) or deleted.

Thus, modules like Publicize! are not included here, and do not seem to be accessible via Slim Jetpack.

Specifically, the ones not included here are: Comments, gplus-authorship, likes, markdown, post-by-email, publicize, and subscriptions.

NOTE: Perhaps those modules all require a wordpress.com connection to operate, so perhaps this is actually up-to-date. There are a couple modules that are included in Slim that do not appear in the current jetpack (2.8).

If I am incorrect in any of this, please let me know and I will update/re-rate my review.

Great!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Practical, useful and compact tool without many unnecessary function from the wordpress.com jetpack for self-hosted sites. User right administration would do well because it was displayed on my website to subscribers if you would not have used any role managers.

Works great, more convenient than standard JetPack
By , for WP 3.8.1

Works as advertised, and no need to re-connect to WordPress every time it's deactivated or reactivated for testing, etc. WAY more convenient (and seems faster) than standard JetPack.

So close, but just far enough off...
By , for WP 3.8

Out of all the plugs in I've tried, this one fell just one important step short of being perfect.

It's easy to install and has a super easy set up interface. In fact, everything about it was looking perfect... EXCEPT.... there is no Facebook like button if you aren't hosted by wordpress.com.

That's a shame since FB is such an ingrained part of the social networking system... oh well. Unless someone gives me a workaround solution (and I tried adding a special icon, but it won't give me the FB logo, just that y shaped share logo), I'm back to shopping.

Great

Only need the same option to jetpack plugin (without wordpress.com login) and this is perfect :).

Always disliked banners...
By , for WP 3.7.1

The marketing banners and wordpress.com registration requirements were always annoying, but this gives you the the benefits of Jetpack without the annoying bits!

I like :)

It does not slow down your site like the original one does!

Nice work!
By , for WP 3.5.2

Just needed tiled galeries support and carousel support so this port is very useful. Thanks!
