How to Get Jetpack without a WordPress.com Account using Slim Jetpack
Activate Jetpack Plugin without WordPress.COM Account by Slim Jetpack
Go to Settings >> Slim Jetpack, here, you can see all the available modules and features of Slim Jetpack. Activating these all features are as simple as that of WordPress but the only thing different is that you don’t need to connect it with WordPress.COM account.
Connecting Jetpack to WordPress.com
After activating and installing Jetpack, you’ll need to connect it to WordPress.com. A WordPress.com account is required so that Jetpack can provide your site with stats and analytics about your traffic, site security, faster content delivery, sharing tools and multiple site management from one interface.
In many cases — for example, our content delivery network, which hosts your images on the WordPress.com servers — we already had the infrastructure in place to use Automattic’s servers for this feature, whether you enabled the feature from a WordPress.com site or a self-hosted site with Jetpack.
The ideal way to experience WordPress
Keep visitors interested with automatic links to your related content, and monitor stats and notifications on the go with the WordPress mobile app.
There is a nifty developer mode that makes it possible to use Jetpack without connecting a WordPress.com account to your site – making it essentially “offline-mode”. If you’re a user of the now deprecated JP Plugins that allowed you to use Jetpack features without Jetpack itself, this is a good alternative.
In order to better understand how our customers use Jetpack — and so that we can efficiently and effectively improve the product — we actively track activities around the product, including page views (WordPress.com and within the dashboard of your own WordPress site on which Jetpack is installed) and clicks (on any links used when managing your site via WordPress.com or within the Jetpack dashboard of your own WordPress site on which Jetpack is installed).
Getting started with Jetpack
The easiest way to install Jetpack is from within WordPress itself. Log in to your site and head to your dashboard, click on the Plugins tab in the left panel, then click “Add New.” If you search for “Jetpack,” you’ll find the latest version and be able to install it by clicking the “Install Now” link.
How to improve your User Experience using Jetpack
Hello Richard,I’m into trying the things you suggested re: mobile phone exposure. However, I ran into a slight problem. For some reason when I put in my Word Press password it bounces and says it’s the wrong password. That’s funny because it gets me into Word Press. Is there a reason? Please help me by giving me a way to satisfy the password problem. Are they asking for the same password?
JetPack extends the abilities of a hosted WordPress.com web site, and many of its features are reliant on the WordPress.com servers. We have the ability to use JetPack on our self-hosted WordPress web sites using the JetPack plugin, but we must connect our site to a WordPress.com account to open up its many features. Let’s go through those steps quickly right now.
Top 5 Best Practices when using Jetpack on client websites
Very helpful hints Brandon, thank you!
I have a question related to points 3 and 4 (and maybe 5): How does Photon behaves in that case?
I mean, say that I am temporarily connected with my (developer) WP.com account, or I’m developing the site on a “non live URL” (or a staging site).
Now I’m uploading images with Photon activated.
When the site is finished I move the site to it’s official URL (and hosting), and disconnect Jetpak from my account and reconnect it with the client account.
What happens to the Photon images? I’ll stil get them?
Fixing Jetpack Connection Issues
If you passed that test, enter your site’s URL at the WordPress XML-RPC Validation Service (leave all of the defaults as-is, and don’t provide any usernames or passwords if prompted). If you see “Congratulation! Your site passed the first check,” you’re done and have passed the second test as far as we’re concerned.
We currently back up the following data: WordPress database tables (any tables which begin with your WordPress table prefix and also have a unique key or a primary key). We also back up the files in your plugins, themes, and uploads directories, as well as select files from your WordPress root directory and `wp-content` directory. This includes all the unique and irreplaceable data in WordPress, as well as everything properly integrated into the WordPress installation.In addition to the data that we back up and store, we also use (and store) your server access credentials (if provided): SSH and/or FTP/SFTP. These credentials are explicitly provided by you when activating Jetpack Backups.
How to Use WordPress Jetpack Offline
Jetpack comes with plenty of modules to help you use contact forms, utilize infinite scrolling, shortcodes, and a whole lot more. These features can help turn your self-hosted WordPress website to be as powerful as websites are hosted on WordPress.com. However, there is a disadvantage that comes with the tool, it only works with you online, and when logged onto WordPress.com.
Using Jetpack for Client Sites – Updates and Improvements
I love the features of Jetpack but it’s getting more and more complex from a UI standpoint. And some of the features overlap with very popular plugins. Take sitemaps for example… it should honestly just be a part of the core WP platform and not even require a plugin. All search engines have agreed on the standard. But Jetpack doesn’t have critical optimization tools for meta titles and descriptions that other plugins do. It requires me to now configure each against the other to ensure no conflicts. It’s getting busy folks. I feel like Jetpack should extend itself into dozens of plugins rather than trying to be everything to everyone.
The other side of the coin is staying in touch with the visitors who’ve seen and read your content so that they don’t forget about you and come back to see what else you have to say. You may not necessarily want to use all of these of course as it depends a lot on the kind of site or blog you’re running. But because Jetpack makes it easy to turn these on and off some of our users opt to try things one at a time to test out their effect.
