opinions wanted

i’m interested in knowing what you guys think about http://jetpack.me/

is it worth the time?

does it speed up your site?

are the features good, bad, indifferent?

thanks in advance for your opinions.

    Hi billyvayne,

    I can’t really see any speed gain with this one, I don’t think it’s meant to speed up a site. I’d definitely recommend using WordPress Stats, I think it’s just the easiest stat plugin to setup and use and it just works.

    As for the others in the pack, I’ve just never found need for them myself. I’ll ask a couple of the other guys over here what their thoughts are on it.

    We’ve run into issues with it for a few members here. I’ve not actually ever installed it on one of my WordPress sites. I prefer piwik for stats myself. As far as I know JetPack does nothing to speed your site or improve performance.

    Seen far too many conflicts caused by Jetpack for it to be worth the effort to be honest.

    The individual plugins contained can be really useful (though I don’t use them myself) but I’d advocate using the original individuals rather than Jetpack.

    In fact, I’ve contemplated forking them and maintaining them myself just to help folks avoid the problems Jetpack causes.


Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
