Your WordPress, Streamlined.
Kudos for the outstanding plugin. Very friendly language.
The only annoying thing is having to click the "full features" button to configure them.
Makes turning off multiple features a bit longer than it needs to but otherwise, does as advertised.
I'm not a huge fan of all the modules but I don't use them all. That's one of the reasons I like this plugin. I don't have to use everything. I have a choice! I'm sure somebody will and does use everything and to those that do: awesome!
I've used this plugin as a learning reference when it comes to plugin development and believe it or not, my PHP chops as well. Yes, I learned a lot from looking at the code and how it's utilized.
In all it's a great plugin to use and learn from.
Wonders if James will actually read this
Nice boost to wp possibilities.
All in one functions to enhance WordPress but i have some troubles.
JetPack is a cool plugin.
I'd like to give more it 4 stars but I can not.
a) Some of these plugins should beings integrated directly into WP (Similar news, Contact form, Icon site, Omnisearch, Share on FB and c.o., Subscriptions, Widget Visibility). Plugins require a lot of memory php.
b) I must to install all JP even if there are plugins that I'm not using, I can only disable it's, not remove. There are 17 plugins JP that I do not use. I can not find all my favorite plugins without JP, like those of JP Bot.
c) I regret in some plugins : In developer mode, all those applying for WP connection to work while they only not need such Carousel (if memory serves good).
d) I dont like : VaultPress (not opensource/not free), Notifications, JSON API, the WP Connection button in "Jetpack Comments".
Infinite Scroll not work on my theme (GeneratePress), anyway I dont like the FB style. I prefer WP-PageNavi, this modern style lacks natively in WP.
Similar plugins to "BruteProtect", "bbPress", "Float To Top Button", "Responsive Lightbox", "Evermore" and "Hide My WP" add's on JP or better on WP that would be great.
Thank you for your development work and effort.

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