Support » Plugin: Jetpack - WP Security, Backup, Speed, & Growth » Publicize for WordPress 5.0

  • Resolved heykymmie



    My self-hosted wordpress has been updated to version 5.0 automatically. I go ahead and check the Add/New Post and saw the changes or new UI. I can’t seem to see the “Publicize” functionality.

    I tried to click on the gear button (Settings) and it only shows When my post will be published.

    I also tried to click on the 3 vertical dots > Options, and could select fields to be displayed but Publicize.

    Is this not included in the 5.0 version of WordPress? Do we need to revert back to the Classic Editor?

    Hi there!

    The Publicize section is available on the new WordPress Editor once you click on Publish.

    Here is a video showing that behaviour:

    Hello @arunsathiya,

    Thank you for this! You’re awesome! However, would you know where to put a custom text before it posts on other social media sites? Before, you can edit the text before publishing posts.

    Hi there,

    If you have a social media account connected, you should see a box to enter a personalized message right after publishing it. Here’s a screenshot of that box:

    Write back to us if you need more help 🙂

    Thanks for the information for finding the publicize settings. Now I want to edit the information after having scheduled a post. How do I get to it again for editing?



    @denelan, you can use the Jetpack plugin icon at the top right of the WordPress Editor, to update the Publicize message.

    Here is a video showing how that works:

    Thanks @arun for you explanation. It makes it very clear.

    I don’t have that button… I do have Yoast’s icon at that spot.
    And Jetpack is also not showing in the plugins section in the menu of the three dots to the right.

    Hi, I’m using Jetpack on a site. When I go to Jetpack settings to configure my social media accounts, I get redirected to (where I do not have a site). And because I do not have a site, I cannot configure my social media. Any help you can provide is much appreciated.
