Dashboard fail
By ,

I have been using Jetpack stats for some time and appreciate having the free tools in Jetpack. I am rating this down today because the stats failed in my dashboard. They still work on the stats page. Anyone know why they work one place and not in the other?

It was working, but now...nothing
By , for WP 3.7

After the latest WordPress (3.7) update my stats quit working. So I disconnected then tried to reconnect. Now all I get is:
Couldn't resolve host 'jetpack.wordpress.com'
Nothing on my site has changed. I have no clue as to why I can't connect.

It slows down admin panel
By , for WP 3.6

On self hosted wordpress, It slows down admin panel. It needs improvements. Otherwise 5 stars.

jetpack is a great plugin but..
By , for WP 3.6

The only drawback to Jetpack is it is a resource hog. I had to remove this plugin from all of my sites until the high resource usage has settled a bit. I have one site of full dedicated server, and have been told by hosting as well Godaddys plugin p3 profiler not to use this. Now honestly If anyone could trust anything godaddy ever said or done, then i'd follow it. But when the hosting company im with said that it pulled way too much of my site and we compared stats, it is true. 80% of the wordpress site was used by jetpack with minimal of the additions it comes with turned on.
I hope this one day gets better as jetpack is an awesome plugin, if you have some severe hosting or dedicated servers.
Much props to the creators as once again, i'm going to install this plugin and try a work around on resources.

Great features but missing the finishing touch
By , for WP 3.5.2

Jetpack in on one hand great. It offers features that should not be basically part of the WordPress core. In that way we love the statistics, custom css, sharing, CDN, and so on.

On the other hand we strongly miss the finishing touch. I.e. Jetpack offers an image widget, but the image widget is not connected to the media library. I manage to get the url by myself, but don't understand the logic behind it. I also don't understand why activating, deactivating and configuration of modules is so user unfriendly. Connection with WordPress.org, and so on.

So please continue developing the plugin and the modules. If the finishing touch is there we would certainly consider paying for a premium version.

sweet but ugly

its a good plugin with many features but some features take long time to respond , they may respond after the visitor has left the page

Pretty good
By , for WP 3.5.1

Like the different options that the jetpack provides I do wish you were able to turn some options off because I have my own responsive theme that I would like to use but I cant run Jetpack because of its theme

Jetpack is incompatible with All-in-One Event Calendar
By , for WP 3.5.1

If All-in-One Event Calendar is running jetpack doesnt conect.

Give you a "register_http_request_failed"

CSS ruined the front page
By , for WP 3.5.1

I installed it I was excited about all the great features, then I enter my site to see how it looks: ERROR. Reloaded it several times, then I entered toother pages of my site and it seemed to work fine. Noticed the CSS Editor and thought it was the reason for it, and as a lazy person I don't feel like using it, especially since I was fine with the older design and I didn't see any choices (and I'm stupid) so I uninstalled the whole plugin. Nice job with the other features, though.
Notice that I'm a rookie so I'm probably wrong.

Good, but it slows down my website
By , for WP 3.5.1

Generally, Jetpack is good; but it slows down my self-hosted website which resulted as some pictures not showing up. Yesterday, I even couldn't post a single entry so I decided to deactivate Jetpack and apparently things went OK again. Hopefully Jetpack team could fix this soon :)
