By , for WP 4.0.1

I am using it on my site its good but just need a tab where we can see online visitors too.

Great value, and getting better
By , for WP 4.0.1

I've used Jetpack for many years now, I use it on all of our sites. It's a great plugin, and it has improved greatly over the years, especially the gallery and photon features are great. There are still some issues that need to be fixed:

- Pet peeve: It automatically adds @jetpack as the default twitter:site, a real pain in the ass and on the narrow edge of content theft, as links shared on twitter is labeled as coming from jetpack, not your site. It can be fixed by editing functions.php, or by adding a plugin to remove it, both a big NO.

- It's is bloaty, as most functions you activate also adds it's own js og css, some of them more than one. So be careful only to activate exactly what you need, and keep an eye on the number of resources a user has to load. W3total-cache is not able to automatically add and combine them all, making it a pain to work with.

- Poor documentation. Jetpack changes often, and seldom breaks, which is good, but it is pretty hard to find out exactly what is possible, or how to figure out a bug. Useful forum topics get closed before the issue is resolved, making it a timeconsuming prosess to wade though many different threads to try to find the answer you need, or adding your own duplicate topic just to say "this is still an issue".

Great, but bloated
By , for WP 4.0

Jetpack is fantastic, but it is quite bloated. A lot of the plugins are enabled by default, and they shouldn't be.

The TTL of Photon is a problem. Chaching indefinitely is not a good solution for many setups. In my specific situation I had to disable Photon on many sites due to watermarks being added by plugins after upload (making it easier for clients).

It's Great When You Use Most of What it Offers
By , for WP 4.0

We use and rely on a lot of the features Jetpack has such as Photon, Carousels, Contact forms, Comments, etc. While not the best thing to use if you only need a few modules, it's pretty good when you use most of the modules available.

Some options work well, some don't
By , for WP 4.0

I'm using an RTL design, so some of the options work well and some, simply put, don't. But the plugin is well worth the time, some of the options are amazing!

its great plugin for my website self hosting.

Good to have it
By , for WP 3.9.2

One of the best plugin I've came across. It has multiple features and group of other plugins which are mandatory for any blog/website, you just need to configure it and that's it.

Using this since long, works good..

Great because it makes it easy
By , for WP 3.9

I think there may be better plugins for control over every feature aspect contained within jetpack, but I just love that's so plug and play. Truth is I find it hard to evaluate performance because some of the outcomes are relatively challenging to track. If it's doing what it says though it's solid.
