Add Infinite Scroll to search result pages

By default, Infinite Scroll is only active on your site’s home page as well as on the archive pages. You can, however, use the infinite_scroll_archive_supported filter to add support to other pages:

function tweakjp_custom_is_support() {
	$supported = current_theme_supports( 'infinite-scroll' ) && ( is_home() || is_archive() || is_search() );
	
	return $supported;
}
add_filter( 'infinite_scroll_archive_supported', 'tweakjp_custom_is_support' );

Enable Infinite Scroll in your theme using Masonry

To enable Infinite Scroll in your theme, you can follow the steps described here. However, if your theme uses the Masonry library you’ll need a few extra steps. Luckily, WPTheming put together a great tutorial:

How to change the credit link in the Infinite Scroll footer

If you’d like to change the default credit link appearing in the Infinite Scroll footer, you can use the infinite_scroll_credit filter, like so:

function tweakjp_cust_credit() {
	return '<a href="http://example.com">My Custom Link</a>';
}
add_filter( 'infinite_scroll_credit', 'tweakjp_cust_credit' );

Once you add that code to your theme’s functions.php, a new link will appear instead of the default “Powered by WordPress” link.

Jetpack 2.1: Tiled Galleries

Posting photo galleries on your WordPress blog is a fun way to share your experiences with the world, but do plain old thumbnail grids truly express your artistic side? No, they don’t. That’s why we’ve added tiled galleries to Jetpack.

Tiled galleries allow you to create beautiful photo mosaics for your blog posts. Just activate the Tiled Gallery module (and optionally set the tiled layout as the default) to create gorgeous galleries in seconds. Your friends will envy you, and your enemies will fear you.

You might be thinking, “Are tiled galleries the only new feature in Jetpack 2.1? If they are, that’s certainly understandable, because it’s an amazing addition to an already feature-rich plugin.” No, tiled galleries are not the only new feature; we’ve also added a slideshow mode for galleries. Just choose Slideshow from the Type dropdown when creating your gallery, and you’ll instantly have a dynamic photo display. Slideshows and tiled galleries both look amazing on mobile devices, and they both integrate seamlessly with the Carousel module.

In addition to giving you new ways to show off your photographs, we’ve spent a lot of time fixing bugs, too.  Photon, Infinite Scroll, Publicize, Sharing, and the Contact Form modules have all been given some TLC, and the Custom CSS editor has been updated. For a complete list of changes, see the changelog.

Update: Jetpack 2.1.1 has been released to fix a bug that was preventing updates from Jetpack 1.9.2 and older.

Jetpack 2.0.3 Released

This release continues to refine Jetpack’s handling of images in Photon (our image accelerator) and enhances theme and plugin compatibility with Infinite Scroll.

Jetpack’s Custom CSS Editor also gets a major overhaul for this release. The editing experience is now more streamlined and supports Sass and LESS as alternatives to traditional CSS. Write your site’s styles in your preferred language, and Jetpack handles the rest.

Those are the highlights, but this release also fixes many other issues you reported. For a complete list of changes, see the official Jetpack Changelog.

The update will be available in your WordPress dashboard shortly. Alternatively, you can always download the latest version of Jetpack here at jetpack.me.

Remember these fixes are made possible by bug reports submitted by you (thanks!), so please contact support or post in the support forum if you need help.

Jetpack 2.0.1 Released

Today we released Jetpack 2.0.1 to correct various issues with Photon, Publicize, and Infinite Scroll. What did we fix?

Photon

  • Avoid distorting images that don’t have explicit width and height set, or that only have one dimension specified.
  • When images are linked to their full-size versions, also serve the full-size versions from the WordPress.com CDN.
  • If an image is already processed with Photon, don’t reprocess it.
  • Add support for the Lazy Load plugin.
  • Unbreak smilies. :)

Publicize

  • If a site has custom shortlink settings, use those rather than always using wp.me.
  • Disable the Publicize interface for any posts already publicized to reduce confusion.
  • Link to connected LinkedIn profiles on the connections screen.
  • Improve error handling.

Infinite Scroll

  • Child themes now support Infinite Scroll if the parent theme does.
  • Archives now properly load only posts that would be shown if Infinite Scroll wasn’t present.
  • Link to support documentation within the module when the active theme doesn’t support Infinite Scroll.

Those are the highlights, but we also fixed dozens of other issues reported by our users. For a complete list of changes, see the official Jetpack Changelog.

The update will be available in your WordPress dashboard shortly; alternatively, you can always download the latest version of Jetpack here at jetpack.me as well.

Remember to contact support or post in the support forum if you need help. These fixes are made possible by bug reports submitted by you and other users. Thanks for the help.

Jetpack 2.0: Publicize to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr; Post by Email; Photon; Infinite Scroll

The past nine releases of Jetpack have started to reveal our vision for next-generation features that will boost WordPress’ incredible success by making it more social, more connected, more mobile, and more customizable.

Over three million downloads later, we’re excited to report that the community has embraced this seemingly impossible vision for combining the best of hosted and non-hosted WordPress. This tenth release brings some of the most-asked-for features into the hands of millions of Jetpackers.

Publicize to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr…

You no longer have to jump through hoops and developer portals to connect your blog to your friends on your favorite social networks. Through Jetpack and your WordPress.com account, you can connect to each network with just a few clicks and broadcast to your audiences and followers across several networks, making WordPress your true digital hub. Activate Publicize from the main Jetpack page in your dashboard, then go to Settings → Sharing to add social sharing connections.

Post by Email

If you live in Gmail, Outlook, your BlackBerry, or just find it easiest to email on the go, you’ll love the new Post by Email feature. Email anything to your secret address — a photo, a video, a bunch of photos, an audio file, ten pages of single-spaced text — and we’ll figure out how to make it beautiful and put it on your blog literally within seconds after you send it. Combined with Publicize and the previously-released Subscriptions module, that post will go out to all your friends including ones that subscribe via email, completing the loop of email / blog nirvana. To set up your special address go to Users → Your Profile in your dashboard and click the “Enable Post By Email” button.

Photon Your Images

Have you ever switched themes to find that full-width images break out of the layout and no longer fit your theme? Are you frustrated that images on your blog take too long to load? Jetpack Photon fixes all of that by making the advanced image acceleration and image editing service from WordPress.com available to the broader WordPress community, essentially making every image a fully dynamic object that themes and plugins can transform to their heart’s content without killing your server. In fact, if you enable Photon, you will see your CPU and bandwidth usage plummet as images are served through the global WordPress.com cloud, meaning less load on your host and faster images for your users.

Infinite Scroll

Infinite Scroll brings the future of reading on the web to your website. Speed and performance are key, and Infinite Scroll loads new content quickly without a full-page refresh. Instead of the old way of navigating down a page — by scrolling and then clicking a link to get to the next page and waiting for the page to refresh — infinite scrolling pulls the next set of posts into view automatically when the reader approaches the bottom of the page. Your theme needs support for this to work. There are already several themes in the directory with Jetpack Infinite Scroll support and theme authors will find documentation for adding it to any theme on jetpack.me.

Onwards…

Jetpack 2.0 isn’t just about shiny new things, we’ve also fixed dozens of bugs and under-the-hood things to keep Jetpack one of the smoothest running, most secure, and most stable plugins out there.

I want to personally thank all of the members of the Jetpack community who have shared countless hours of testing, feedback, and criticism. Your thoughts and passion have made the plugin immeasurably better than it would have been otherwise, and rest assured we’re still listening closely to your feedback around better stats, module activation and deactivation, developer mode, translation, and documentation.
