Your WordPress, Streamlined.
Publicize needs to make the social sharing buttons more visible by allowing them to be both above and/or below the posts/pages.
Something that's mostly Facebook's fault is that often the wrong image will be publicized on facebook. The og:image pulls any image on the page that it thinks is the biggest even if the image is totally inappropriate. There doesn't appear to be any solution other than to disable facebook from Publicize and putting post titles and links manually.
User interface for the various modules could be improved too, it's a bit confusing.
Just installed JetPack on my home security site, and I must say - it's amazing. This will be one of the first plugins I install for my future wordpress installations.
Contact form does not forward contact information when new clients use our form from Jetpack. Support did not provide a solution.
Huge amount of goodies in one plugin, why wouldn't you want to use it!
I use this on a lot of my sites simply for the easy social sharing. Haven't had too much time to play around with the other features, but even if you use it for publicize alone I think it's worth it. Never caused an issue with any other plugins I've used.
I love the idea behind jetpack. But there are still some features integrated that are a bit weired or need customization. E.G. facebook Preview image and text does not work with pages. Also Photon adds strange image crop for no reason.
My Advice: Pick what you need and find a specific plugin...
One of the best and well documented plugins that I ever used.
Activating it took the site down with a series of fatal errors and had to delete it to restore sanity.
Said the plugin had an invalid header and refused to install. That's enough for me - not ready for prime time. Also - Automatic needs to have a look at the practice of harvesting email addresses. I won't subject my visitors to that sort of intrusion and abuse. No Jetpack for me!
