JetPack.. The don'ts and don'ts
Hello fellow WA'ers,
I wanted to write a quick blog about the virtues of using the JetPack Plugin....
In short there are none! I installed it and it started messing with my site straight away, in that my site could no longer accept comments as the captcha box had disappeared so no one was able to post a comment to my site!
I asked about how to fix it on the chat and got this response from @Rich:
@GregRobs It's 14-in-1 useless rubbish that puts a massive overhead on your site. Most people only use it for "stat-watching". If you run P3http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/p3-profiler/you'll see. It makes endless calls toWordPress.COM Ditch it!!"
So I deleted it and everything was good again! RIch also posted this on chat:
"@GregRobs I've deleted it at least a couple of times via FTP last month after it locked up people's sites so they couldn't log in. However, one of them was a siterubix so they had to start over. It's a NIGHTMARE!!! :)"
So for anyone thinking of using this plugin...In short don't, you'll be wasting your time and if you're using a siterubix site you will lose your stuff and will have to start again!
