Announcing Jetpack 1.2

Here at Jetpack HQ we’ve been working hard over the last few weeks, finishing up a major update for Jetpack: we’re calling it Jetpack 1.2.

Among other highlights for this release are two of the most frequently requested features: support for Google+ in the Sharing toolbar and Email subscriptions, a feature which lets your readers get every single post on your blog direct to their email inbox.

Other new features and enhancements include:

  • Email subscriptions to your blog
  • Improved UI for showing new and updated Jetpack features
  • Better support for other languages
  • Smarter and safer Jetpack upgrades
  • New Shortcodes for VideoPress & Google Maps
  • Added LinkedIn and Google+ buttons to Sharing UI
  • Image Widget
  • RSS Links Widget

To download:

  • If you have an earlier version of Jetpack: go to Dashboard->Updates. If Jetpack isn’t listed, click the Check Again button (it may take a few minutes for Jetpack 1.2 to appear).
  • Or, go to your Dashboard. Under Plugins, click “Add New”. Type ‘Jetpack’ into the search field.
  • Or if you prefer to do it manually download the latest version here. For Support, go here.

  1. John says:

    Thanks for this update! One quick question, though. Do you plan to implement twitter / facebook login for commenting anytime soon?

  2. aleSub says:

    alright! update mode: on :D

  3. Well I definitely go an check all 3 of my WordPress blogs to update my Jetpack

  4. Will Stevens says:

    Updates to the Sharing toolbar constitute a ‘major rev’ for Jetpack? Seriously? Methinks a fair number Jetpack followers are waiting for more substantial additions, such as Highlander comments from WP.com. Amirite?

    • Scott Berkun says:

      Hi Will:

      The big investment for 1.2 was Subscriptions, a surprisingly powerful feature. We highly recommend you check it out. Works for comments as well as posts.

      Request noted for Highlander. Thanks.

  5. What about the comments widget ? When we are going to have it ?

  6. Daniel says:

    Thanks alot, crew! I hope this is the beginning of a bit more frequent updates . :)

    Two things though:

    1. Sorry for nagging about this, but the new comment function (the one available for wordpress.com users, where you can choose to login with wordpress/twitter/facebook). It’s really crucial; at least I think so. I tried both Disqus and Intense Debate, but I want something lighter, where I don’t need to sync my comments to an external site.

    Again, sorry for bringing it up only minutes after a really good update. I just feel like it’s such a wanted function, it would be unfair not to mention it.

    2. The e-mail subscriptions. Good job, but would it be possible to translate them into other languages (Swedish for me)? Preferably without having to go into the code.

    • Scott Berkun says:

      Hi Daniel. Thanks for the emphatic request for the WordPress.com comments UI. We hear you and will keep this in mind as we plan future releases.

      I know that sounds like the kind of generic response you often see when users of a service make requests, but I can promise it’s not generic. We actually keep track of requests and that does impact the decisions we make, and I am a real person and not a auto-comment request responder (Although, this is exactly the kind of thing a great auto-comment responder would say)..

      On #2 – The subscriptions UI is pretty sparse, it wouldn’t take much effort to manually translate. But we can see about supporting more languages in the future.

    • mdawaffe says:

      We know there are some missing translations for many languages in this release. We’ll likely release a translations update sometime soon to address the problem.

      Sorry for the hassle.

  7. It broke something when I did the upgrade. Here’s a bit of it:

    Warning: fopen(/home/liamb2/public_html/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/twitter-widget.php) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/liamb2/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4339

    Warning: fread(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home/liamb2/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4342

    Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home/liamb2/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4345

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/liamb2/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php:4339) in /home/liamb2/public_html/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/jetpack.php on line 2309

    Blah, blah…

    • mdawaffe says:

      We saw that happen occasionally in our testing, but couldn’t reliably reproduce the problem. The errors should go away on the next page load. If you continue to experience problems, please contact support.

    • I have a similar problem. I could not get to the Jetpack upgrade from the upgrade icon (even after hitting “try again”). and so did it yesterday from the plugin procedure – and got the standard, expected response: “Jetpack updated successfully”).

      Today, I have the same series of warnings described above.

      • Problem now gone away, voluntarily. I wait to see what happens when next I load a post – otherwise, thanks. Subscriptions feature is just what I have been waiting for.

  8. Daniel says:

    I found one more thing.

    The Google +1 button is too small, it would be great if it was the same height as the twitter and facebook buttons. Also, it loads a bit slower than any other button (but perhaps that issue is on the Google side).

    Another problem is that when adding something after the facebook like-button, there is a huge gap before the next button appears. Also, that may be due to buggy facebook-coding.

    • mdawaffe says:

      We’re working on cleaning up some of the inconsistencies in the Sharing buttons. The speed of the Google+ button probably isn’t something we can change, and is probably dependent on many external factors. For me, for example, it loads quite quickly, and some of the others are much slower.

      The Facebook button is notorious in its lack of width intelligence. The issue is with their implementation.

      • Karchesky says:

        Thank you for the update. I’d like to add to the “google+ button inconsistency” problem. If possible, I’d prefer it there was a choice beetween a simple link and a “smart button” like in the other cases, mostly so that the link could be styled to match the rest of the theme.

  9. Dave Zatz says:

    Finally, an update! And with great new features – thank you! Now my initial nits…

    1) Google +1 sharing icon is too small compared to the others.
    2) I tried to subscribe to a comment and the site was listed on the user management web portal as “Jetpack” and hyperlinked.
    3) Sidebar subscription widget is pretty ugly – can we do something better?
    4) Related to blog post subscriptions, anyone know of a way to port folks from Feedburner?
    5) Related to not-so-hot formatting, anyone know where I can find info how to customize the Twitter sidebar widget via CSS?

    • mdawaffe says:

      You’re welcome :)

      1) Yup. We’re working on ironing out some of the inconsistencies.
      2) Can you please contact support with more information and a screenshot?
      3) The widget tries to do as little as possible to respect the theme’s widget styling.
      4) Importing subscriptions is something we’re considering, but aren’t yet sure the best way to handle everything.
      5) There’s some basic information at http://en.support.wordpress.com/css-basics/, but it’s not specific to Jetpack widgets, and it’s geared toward the WordPress.com audience. If you’re familiar with CSS, that link won’t help much: just look at the widgets markup and have fun. If you’re not familiar with CSS, there’s lots of forums that are helpful.

    • MegaZone says:

      To fix the +1 sizing

      Edit jetpack/modules/sharedaddy/sharing-sources.php

      Change:

      public function get_display( $post ) {
      return '<div class="googleplus1_button"><g:plusone size="small" callback="sharing_plusone" href="' . esc_attr( get_permalink( $post->ID ) ) . '">/g:plusone></div>';
      }

      To:
      public function get_display( $post ) {
      return '<div class="googleplus1_button"><g:plusone size="medium" callback="sharing_plusone" href="' . esc_attr( get_permalink( $post->ID ) ) . '">/g:plusone></div>';
      }

      In a future update perhaps give the user the option to select the size. Valid values as ‘small’ (15px), ‘medium’ (20px), and ‘tall’ (60px). For ‘standard’, which is 24px, omit the ‘size=’ attribute completely, it is the default. You could also give people the option of choosing the ‘inline’ annotation (annotation=”inline”) or no annotation (annotation=”none”). The default, which you use, is to omit the annotation attribute and get ‘bubble’. See http://www.google.com/webmasters/+1/button/index.html

  10. mdawaffe: Yeah, seems to have settled down. Thanks

    Bill

  11. crissoca says:

    Nice! thanks guys i was looking forward for Google+

  12. cjx says:

    Please include the comment system for the next update. Thank you

  13. Wel, I am sorry to say so, but , again, the wordpress.com stats are NOT working !!
    I am getting this message: You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page. !!
    Again …..

    I received a beta version that worked fine, but after the upgrade, it is all gone !!

    • mdawaffe says:

      This seems to be a fairly common problem, though we’re having trouble reproducing the issue.

      I’ll follow up in an email asking for more details.

      • I’m having this same issue on my site, I’ll keep an eye on this thread hoping for a solution.

        Love the new features, especially the subscribe by email widget!

      • Deactivating the WP Dashboard Stats plugin seems to be fixing the issue, I just tried it and I now have Jetpack stats working again. Might be a conflict?

      • johnyw says:

        Some guys here were able to fix the stats issue by deactivating the WP dashboard stats!
        Well, As far as I know of, I don’t have this plugin installed and yet the Stats are not working.

        Strangely enough, about a month ago I received Jetpack Version 1.1.4-alpha, and that version is working fine ! Even now, I deleted the 1.2 version, reinstalled the alpha version again, and yes , it works fine. I would think, that, by comparing the two versions the people behind Jetpack should be able, by comparing the two versions, it must be possible to find what is causing the error.
        But, ok, I am not a programmer and I guess its not that simple…?
        Anyway, I am confident the will come up with a fix :)
        In the meantime, I run the alpha version .

      • Classical Music Education.com says:

        I’ve got the same problem. Could you email me too please?

      • seyekuyinu says:

        Hello, I am having the same issue. It tells me I don’t have enough permission to access the page.

  14. FoodieBuddha says:

    I just updated and am having trouble with JetPack. I had the same problems as William Bowles. Now everything seems to “work” okay – however, the stats function has disappeared. I can configure it, but there is no place to view them anymore. When I go to the old url for my stats page, it tells me i don’t have permission to use the feature. Any thoughts?

  15. Fighting For Stanley says:

    Oddly enough my Sharing doesn’t work anymore the link has disappeared from Settings, and when I click Sharing from the jetpack UI it throws this error “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.
    Internal Server Error” etc etc

    • mdawaffe says:

      This problem is not so common. You win a prize for showing us a new bug.

      Your prize, sadly, isn’t a very good one. Just a followup email from me.

  17. I have the same problem of @FoodieBuddha and @Johny Willemyns Privé with wordpress.com stats

    • same problems as stated above. once upgraded stats page is no longer accessible. upgrade also threw tons of header url errors and fatal error when connecting to wordpress (deactivated then re-activated plugin). Can configure all options, but nothing else and dashboard view is now gone

  18. Hi All, I had the same issue with stats giving the you do not have permission error. I uninstalled WP Dashboard Stats, and it started working.

    • I just read this and tried deactivating WP Dashboard Stats (rather than deleting), it worked and I now have Jetpack stats working.

      • LoveLure says:

        Same problem, same solution. Have not read this whole thread yet, so sorry if this is a duplicate, but I noticed one additional stats issue. Before I tried the above solution, I tried going to JetPack Stats/Configure, since occasionally plugin upgrades wipe out settings (and manually restoring them will bring back functionality).

        While re-submitting the configuration info didn’t fix anything, one thing I noticed while I was there was that the Visit Site Stats to see your stats wasn’t pointing to the right page. Instead of pointing to http://www.myblog.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=stats it pointed back to itself, http://www.myblog.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=jetpack&configure=stats.

        Once I applied the above solution, the Visit Site Stats link fixed itself as well. So, not sure if this is already known, but the two seem related, so I thought I’d post in case it helps pinpoint the cause of the bug. Thanks for the plugin.

  19. AMYunus says:

    Great updates! :-D
    Would love it if next version would have popular posts widget
    I’ve taken the Jetpack survey there :-)

  20. Thanks for adding G+ and subscriptions, perhaps just in time with the latter if Feedburner dries up. Nothing has exploded here (stats ok, error free), but thar be minor cosmetic issues ahoy.

    1. As mentioned, G+ is dinky. The Share/More button also seems to be sitting higher. The vertical misalignment was bugging me. Temporarily CSS fixable: .sharing div.googleplus1_button { padding-top: 6px; } .sharing-anchor { margin-top: 3px; }

    2. When continuing on after hitting the G+ button, to share the post on Google+, the preview text is the hidden text from the top of page, not the post content. I.e. in Twenty Eleven: “Main menu. Skip to primary content. Skip to secondary content. Home; [the nav menu...]“. Is there any way to fix that? I’m using WP Super Cache on that site, if it matters.

    Danke!

  21. Muzza says:

    Noice!! I’m liking the updates. What is the shortcode for Google Maps and how do we customise it??

  22. LinHongJun says:

    my dashboard goes to blank page after update this pack.

  23. mdawaffe says:

    For those of you who no longer see a “Site Stats” menu item, we’re working on a fix.

    In the meantime, you should be able to see your site’s stats at https://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/index.php?page=stats after logging in to your WordPress.COM account.

    I apologize for the hassle.

    • snakeair says:

      Thanks for letting us know we can see our stat’s on wordpress.com but i’m having the same issue viewing them from inside my dashboard.

      Thought i broke my blog again till i read this comments. lol

  24. Caspar says:

    Add me to the list of folks for whom the stats are just completely missing after the upgrade to 1.2. For a while the whole thing (all Jetpack functions that I had enabled) crashed, but was able to get it back after completely uninstalling the plugin and then re-installing – except the stats are completely gone. Thanks for the link to get them at the wordpress.com account in the meanwhile. I’ll be looking forward to the next patch that fixes this!!

    Jetpack 1.2 is broken on Internet Explorer – both versions 8 and 9.

    Problems are:

    it looks ugly, nice tables and formatting are all missing
    the bar graph at the top doesn’t display
    the Yesterday tabs do not work – clicking them does nothing
    while the weekly tab does work, again the formatting is ugly and broken

  32. Is this the result of Jetpack? Did a save from the editor and got this:

    GENERAL

    At: http://williambowles.info/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=proxy_atd&url=/checkDocument

    Doc saved ok though…

    • mdawaffe says:

      It looks like your error report got eaten.

      I think, though, that you may be able to fix it by going to Admin → Jetpack, and clicking “Configure” on the “Spelling and Grammar” box. Then, under “Proofreading”, uncheck both checkboxes under “Automatically proofread content when”. (Those two checkboxes are labelled “a post or page is first published” and “a post or page is updated”.)

      If you have further trouble, please contact support with more details.

  33. PS: Happens every time I save a post

  34. Ben Vassie says:

    I’ve upgraded and site stats are still not working for me

    You are not a member of this site.

    If you have just installed the WordPress.com Stats plugin, this error probably appeared because the API key entered in the plugin belongs to a different WordPress.com user account.

    The owner of the API key must visit this site’s stats page to grant access.

    • Ben Vassie says:

      I’ve tried deactivating WordPress.com Stats and reactivated it, but it does not fix the issue for me

    • Scott Berkun says:

      Sorry you’re having trouble. The error message you are seeing suggests that you may have two different WordPress.com accounts or API keys. You should contact support and they can help you sort out which one to use for your site.

  35. BTW, I like the subscribe by Email widget. I’m currently still using Feedburner as well. Will they conflict as I’m loathe to turn off subscribers.

    Bill

    • Scott Berkun says:

      Hi William:

      Jetpack’s subscription widget will not conflict with Feedburner. They can both live happily side by side.

      We’re aware some people want to import email subscribers from other services, but Jetpack 1.2 does not currently support this.

    Thanks for the update! I’ve come up with an article suggesting all bloggers out there to try Jetpack – http://www.maindevice.com/2011/11/18/use-jetpack-for-wordpress-blog/ you should give it a read.

    And, I want to tell you that with Jetpack, you can help beginner blogger avoid installing tons of plugin. You did that with this awesome subscription feature!

  38. Janardhan says:

    stats is not displaying after the update to 1.2
    anyone help!!

  39. Jelena says:

    After I installed the latest version of Jetpack (1.2), I could not see my stats anymore.
    I uninstalled and installed Jetpack again, but now I cannot connect to wordpress.com and activate the plugin. When I try to do that, I get the following messsage:

    “Your Jetpack has a glitch. Something went wrong that’s never supposed to happen. Guess you’re just lucky: site_lang_missing
    Try connecting again.

    Error Details: The required “site_lang” parameter is missing.”

    So I have two problems; even when it was active, I could not see my stats (I am site admin) and now I cannot activate the plugin at all.

  40. Tammy says:

    I’m loving the functionality of JetPack. With the new email subscription option, is there a way to migrate email subscribers from another service into JetPack?

    • Scott Berkun says:

      Hi Tammy:

      Currently we do not support a migration option. We realize many of you are using other services, so we will investigate this and consider adding it to a future release.

      • Tammy says:

        Thanks, Scott. As a follow-up: I just found a problem with the email subscription on my self-hosted multisite setup, as follows:

        1 – I activated JetPack on one of the sites in the multisite and put the email subscription widget in the sidebar for that site.

        2 – I subscribed with an email address unassociated with any of the blogs on my multisite.

        3 – When I received the email to confirm I wish to subscribe, the email subject line listed one of the OTHER blogs in my multisite. The blog referenced in the email doesn’t even have JetPack activated.

        Any sense of what may be going on here? Thanks!

      • Tammy says:

        A few additional details about the subscription problem, Scott, in case they help with troubleshooting.

        I went ahead and confirmed the subscription to the “wrong” blog to see what would happen. Sure enough, when I visited my new subscription page at wp.com, the blog listed is the wrong one and the link takes me to the wrong site.

        However, the site stats for the correct site show my fake person as a subscriber.

        When I put up a test post on the correct site, I did not receive it in the email account used to subscribe.

    Hi! One question: where can i deactivate the subscription options under the comment box?

    • Scott Berkun says:

      Hi cmonb:

      Currently there is no way to disable the subscription checkboxes that appear under the comments. Why would you want or need to do this?

      • cmonb says:

        I’d like to disable the checkboxes because they’re kind of “destroying” the design of my website. Seems like i have to download the older version again. Where can i find and download it?

      • Scott Berkun says:

        You can turn the Subscriptions feature off if you like, which will of course make the checkboxes go away.

  49. On a different facet of JP, the stats section where it asks you to count the posts/pages registered users access (I have it checked), but does it register every post that’s accessed whether by registered users or not?

    Bill

    • mdawaffe says:

      If left unchecked, only pageviews by people who are not logged in will count.

      If checked, all pageviews will count regardless of wether the person is logged in.

      Note that when it says “page views”, it just means any URL on your site. It is not talking about WordPress capital-P Pages (Admin → Pages → Add New).

      Does that answer your question?

      • Yes, I think so. The problem I have is that most of my site is not in WP (10,500 posts), it consists of flat html pages that I created before WP even existed and there’s a lot of them, maybe 15-20,000 pages in total. They’re all in the same root directory but of course WP doesn’t know they’re there. Moving them into WP is just not on. I have a custom Google engine that searches the entire directory and a WP search just for the WP posts but I don’t like the WP one. In the old days I used to be able to use a beautiful Boolean engine that was so flexible and even output thee results in all kinds of permutations to a text file (I’m talking System 7 or even earlier for the Mac).

      • mdawaffe says:

        Oh, I see. Jetpack’s stats tracker only loads on WordPress generated pages, so it will track views on those pages.

      • Problem with stats
        There seems to be an intermittent problem with the display. The numbers arrive but not the graph and sometimes nothing comes at all though it says ‘done’.

  50. Re the check boxes under comments: Be nice if you could tighten it up, put them on one line please it looks so ugly and a waste of space. An unfortunate aspect of the design of most blogs is the bad use of screen space, bloody great gaps everywhere, no room even for white space.

    B

    • Scott Berkun says:

      One challenge of UI design is we have to make layout choices with different languages in mind. Most languages use 30-40% more space than English does, so if a blog is French or Spanish, much of that whitespace will be filled.

  51. MegaZone says:

    Good update.

    To address the visual issue with Google+ see my comment here: http://jetpack.me/2011/11/17/announcing-jetpack-1-2/#comment-850

    I would still like to see a Facebook button that allows users to Share *or* Like, or at least let us use both. Sharing is better, IMHO, but some users will never use it but will ‘Like’ things.

    Was there ever a solution to the disappearing stats issue?

    installed Jetpack 1.2.2 last night. Since then I’ve been seeing the following error message when I click on “Site Stats”:

    You are not a member of this site.

    If you have just installed the WordPress.com Stats plugin, this error probably appeared because the API key entered in the plugin belongs to a different WordPress.com user account.

    The owner of the API key must visit this site’s stats page to grant access.

    Items to note:
    1. I’ve been using Jetpack for well over 6 months with no problems
    2. My blog (self-hosted) is connected to my wordpress.com account.

    I am having trouble styling the submit button on the email subscriptions form. Everything else is styling as expected with the css, but I cannot get submit botton to take on all of my styling (specifically the width).

    Any help greatly appreciated.

  67. I am with several of the above commenters – I will switch from Feedburner to Jetpack as soon as there is a way to move existing readers over (and, preferably, a way to also get them out, in case WP.com ever drops its service)..

    No problems on my self hosted sites.

    * Might be nice to have option to place the Sharing buttons at top or bottom of post (I prefer mine at the top) or maybe even both

    * For Subscriptions is there any feasible away to not lose the subscriptions I have piled up via the old Subscribe to comments plugin? http://txfx.net/wordpress-plugins/subscribe-to-comments/ Or should I just let it go and start anew?

    For email subscribers, I only want the title and perhaps an excerpt sent so that readers come back to the site. That way they 1) will be recorded in our overall stats 2) will read the post within the environment it was meant to be read in 3) will have the option to easily share the post via Facebook, Twitter etc. 4) will be more likely to leave comments etc.

    As an initial test, I subscribed to my own site and found that the whole post was sent to me by email. After deactivating the subscription option I noticed that only the title was sent to me. It would be great to have this option when permanently activated. Is there any way to currently do this? In the meantime I intend to leave the subscription option deactivated, which is a shame.

  70. This thing of subscriptions on Jetpack is bull. It sends entire posts to subscribers and that limits the amount of traffic coming to the website, some of the subscribers end up coping the posts to their sites without acknowledging the source. It must be addressed with immediate effect.

  71. Thanks for sharing Scott, some really good updates which I think should increase userbity :)
    good stuff.

    I love this plugin, but I can’t use it with my theme. What happens is, as soon as the plugin is activated, all my widgets disappear from the widget area. Also, I can not deactivate the plugin from the plugin page. I have to delete Jetpack from the server. I am using a premium theme from Themeforest. I’d love to have a solution. Anyone?
