Many features, very bad performance.

not that good
By ,

I had to log into my wordpress.com account and suddenly it made crash my whole website, showing an error 500 EVERYWHERE ! And when i finally manage to unblock it and delete the plugin, IT KEEPS MESSING UP MY INSTALL, showing randomly error 500 again !!!

Not worth the hassle

I've tried using this a few times, and it just doesn't play fair. Doesn't integrate well with other plugins, and doesn't give you enough settings. There are other free plugins that do a better job of the core features here.

Broken Mess

Messed my dashboard up so badly I had to do a fresh install, avoid.

Waaaaaay too much going on here.

Don't get me wrong. Jetpack has some great features, but I don't really need 28 plugins, all at once, and all pre-activated. I use about four of the plugins in the pack, and then I spend forever manually deactivating all the rest so they don't conflict with the plugins and theme I really need.

Requirement to connect to WordPress.com
By , for WP 3.6

I trying to use JetPack on a new website I was working on and it said

"Connect to WordPress.com to use JetPack fully etc… " I only wanted the sharing part of the plugin. So I didn't really need to connect to WordPress.com So I clicked the clear x to hide the message. The tooltip told me this would also deactivate the plugin.

Screen Shot:

1. Why would not wanting to connect to WordPress.com make me deactivate all the plugin features that didn't require WordPress.com account?

2. The plugin didn't deactivate as the tool tip suggests it also doesn't hide the notice box.

Every 6 months or so I install Jetpack just to see what has been happening with it's development and every six months. I end up saying.

I wish I could love this plugin

and then I delete the plugin from my server.

ps. I did try this on two different servers run by two different server companies and the results were exactly the same…

slows down

Jetpack on the ground
By , for WP 3.5.2

I think even one star is too generous. I have simply not been able to activate Jetpack.

No Smiley, please

Slows down load time by 3-10 seconds
By , for WP 3.5.1

My WP blog was running unusually slow after installing this. I ran a number of speed tests, and determined that Jetpack was slowing me down by an absurd amount -- even without Photon enabled. After disabling Jetpack and clearing cookies, I got a 3-10 second increase in speed. Ridiculous!d

I like the jetpack features, but the slow speed makes it unusable.

I use WP 3.5.1 and the Clean Retina theme. Got an additional speed-boost using the W3 Total Cache plugin and a free Cloud Flare account. Now my pages are blazing fast. WTF Jetpack?
