Jetpack 4.7.1: Markdown, Widget Visibility, and SSO Fixes

Jetpack 4.7.1 is here to fix a few more bugs, available now for upgrade or installation.

This small update includes:

Widget Visibility Improvements

We made a number of changes to Widget Visibility to improve performance, add more visibility options, and fix a few bugs. In the process, we also changed the way Custom Post Type rules work. Unfortunately, you may have seen some display issues in the widget settings if you used Custom Post Type rules. This is now fixed.

We also fixed some widget setting display issues for folks who use Jetpack in right-to-left languages like Arabic and Hebrew.

Markdown Bug Fix

Depending on your setup, Markdown may not have been working as expected on your posts and pages with the recent update. This is also fixed.

Secure Sign-On Improvements

We toughened Secure Sign-On to make it more reliable and resistant to nonce/token errors. If you ever experienced issues when hitting the “Log in with” button, those problems should now be gone!

    One of my 5 wordpress sites is down and I cannot get any access to any files. When I try to login to for help I am unable to log in or get any response to a password reset. So, I’m totally unable to access help for my site, which is why I’m replying here. Any chance anyone can read this and respond? My other wordpress sites are online and working fine.

    Thank you! Melissa
