Jetpack 7.7: A Better Experience From the Start

In this month’s release, we’ve improved the user experience around connecting your site to WordPress.com. It’s now faster and more reliable, helping you to diagnose and fix issues as quickly as possible.

Additionally, some new tools will now allow you to transfer a connection to a different administrator on your site.

A better Video block

Jetpack’s video hosting feature allows you to upload videos and host them on WordPress.com, rather than on your host’s servers. Once you’ve uploaded your videos, you can add them to your posts and pages using the Video block:

As you can see on the right of the image above, can now customize your video settings right from the editor.

And more

As always, this release includes many other bug fixes and improvements. You can check the changelog for more details. To use the latest version of Jetpack on your site, update your existing installation or install Jetpack.

  2. I can’t download your patch update for your original update, because the original update has caused my since to bounce between http and https, stopping me from making any changes like updating plugins or creating a new post. How do I fix the problems causes by your update?

      If Jetpack 7.7 is causing issues on your site, I would recommend that you delete it altogether, and then reinstall 7.7.1 from scratch.

      If that doesn’t help, could you contact us via this contact form, and give us more details about your site? We’ll see what we can do to help you get this fixed!
