Your WordPress, Streamlined.
I'm on Catchbox theme for both my blog and website. I have jetpack on both and love the functionality and tools. I think Jetpack is the coolest plug in out there and gave it a 5 star rating when I first got it.
However, when I try to update to 3.2, it just hangs forever. When it hangs, my sites just give a Maintenance message and not only can I not get into admin to stop that, no one can see my websites. I had to go into the CPanel to fix this. I left 3.1.1 on the site, but now my plugin page keeps bugging me to update ...
I'm on a MacAir, Firefox v. 33.0.2, Yosemite
I also tried this on my iPad3 with Safari, and tried it on my old laptop MacBook Pro with Firefox 33.0.2 and Snow Leopard... Sot it's not the browsers or the OS.
Download doesn't work, would like the link to work other wise I would give a better review.
Installed and broked all my administrator. It Went completly Blank
Jetpack is really buggy!
Despite creating an WordPress account, it messed up all other plugins.
It's the most buggy plug-in for WordPress I have ever seen! :-(
Unreliable. Comments (facebook/twitter) don't work more often than not. Very disappointing, can't justify wasting more time on it. Why can't I choose which logins to use or disable? them since they don't work in Chrome or IE.
i don't understand what the people at wordpress.com want to achieve with this plugin, it literally slows everything down, probably because it is such a big plugin, but also the need to connect to wordpress.com and mirror to wordpress.com content and have wordpress.com stuff running on the background and on the site when its not needed is quite a hog in every sense of the word, uninstall it from 6 of my sites and going to keep well away from it!
I've previously used Jetpack successfully but, on trying to install on a new blog setup, it killed my little website. Hogged a huge amount of memory and spawned unhappy error messages. Couldn't access dashboard interface until I deleted the plugin. I always wondered why my previous blog setup was slower than desired... I used to blame it on modified themes or lagging servers. Now I strongly suspect it was Jetpack all along.
After installing this plugin you will see an image will appear on top right of your site from source http://pixel.wp.com/g.gif
I like the idea of Jetpack, but it is so slow. I was led to believe that Jetpack would speed up my website, but it has significantly slowed down my site.
I had installed Jetpack on a self-hosted blog (russelrayphotos2.com) about a year ago and it worked/works superbly.
Today I installed it on a different self-hosted blog (russelrayphotos.com), and it won't work at all. I'm specifically trying to get a LIKE button, but it won't load, and leaving comments is not working now.
What am I doing wrong? I'm lost.
I have Jetpack working on two other wordpress.com blogs, so no problem with them. I'll be extremely happy to change this review to 5 stars if someone can help me resolve this. Thanks!
