New year, new Jetpack! Jetpack 5.7 is now available for download — update today for maintenance updates, bug fixes, and improvements.
Jetpack Search Customization
We’ve rolled out more improvements to our beta release of Jetpack Search for Professional plan customers. In this release, we’ve added support for configuring sidebar filtering in the WordPress Customizer. Now, you no longer need to write code to add search filtering to your site.
You can learn a bit more about customizing Search here.
Jetpack used to filter out all content added by other plugins hooking on
comment_form_after. No more! Other plugins hooking on the same filter for showing content now work seamlessly with Jetpack.
There was a bug that stopped you from using markdown as content for a shortcode — it would insert a weird hash number into the rendered content. The key word is “was”: we fixed it.
