    Good day

    This is more of a question than an issue.

    When setting up Post by Email, does the user have to connect to their own WordPress.com account or can they use the sites account?

    I've tried both and it looks like it needs to be to a different account. Connecting the non-admin account to the sites account broke my stats.

    Many thanks for an excellent product.

    We indeed recommend that each author link their account with their own WordPress.com account, thus creating their own Post By Email address.
    You could of course share your own Post By Email address with each one of your authors, but it would cause 2 issues:

    • When one of the authors uses the email address to publish something, it would get published under your name
    • You would lose control over that email address. If you wanted to revoke publishing access to one of the authors, you'd have to reset your own Post By Email address, thus disabling access to all other authors as well until you send them the new email address.

    I would consequently recommend that you ask your authors to link their account with their own WordPress.com account by going to the Jetpack menu in their dashboard.

    It won't affect your own account, and the main Jetpack connection on the site, unless you break that connection yourself by disconnecting from WordPress.com in the Jetpack menu while being connected with the account you used to activate Jetpack.

    Connecting the non-admin account to the sites account broke my stats.

    Could you post your site URL here, so I can have a look?

    Hi Jeremy

    The site in question is http://kempstonrecruitment.co.za/, I resolved the issue with Jetpack by disconnecting and reconnecting my wordpress.com account in Jetpack.

    Thanks for the info.

    Incase it matters, after signing in as a non admin user, I connected their account to Jetpack, setup pbe and then signed in as admin. At that point my site stats didn't work. I then disconnected and reconnected Jetpack which then fixed the problem but broke the pbe. I've subsequently created a WordPress.com account for one of the users and have setup pbe successfully on the site.

    I checked your site, and Stats seem to be working properly now. All my test visits were recorded.

    Do you still experience issues on your end? If so, could you give me more details about the problem?

    Thanks!
