Why do I need a account?

Since Jetpack and its services are provided and hosted by, a account is required for Jetpack to function.

I already have a WordPress account, but Jetpack isn’t working. What’s going on?

A account is different from the account you use to log into your self-hosted WordPress. If you can log into, then you already have a account. If you can’t, you can easily create one during installation.

How do I view my stats?

Once you’ve installed Jetpack your stats will be available on, on the official WordPress mobile apps, and on your Jetpack dashboard.

How do I contribute to Jetpack?

There are opportunities for developers at all levels to contribute. Learn more about contributing to Jetpack or consider joining our beta program.

Absolutely essential plugin, and makes adding social sharing icons a breeze. Be aware of some theme compatibility issues, however that's what a staging site is for 😉

Each time there's an update, it kills of the whole site because it can't compile. The site isn't running anything out of ordinary, only standard wp plugins (this and the antispam). Do more testing pls.
