This month we have worked on several improvements to enhance your Jetpack experience, including further enhancements to the Social Sharing Buttons and Form Block.
Share your blog posts on Mastodon with improved Jetpack Social Sharing Buttons
We made some design and performance updates on our Social Sharing Buttons for a better user experience, including a new sharing button for Mastodon.
You can customize your Social Sharing Buttons by following these steps:
- Go to the Jetpack dashboard in WP Admin.
- View the
Settingsmenu and click on
Add sharing buttons to your posts and pageoption.
- Click on
Configure your sharing buttons.
Once you’ve activated the Sharing feature, you can also go to Settings > Sharing to enable a sharing button:
As you can see in the video above, the button does a few things:
- You can pick between just the icon, icon + text, text only, or a button with a colorful logo and the text.
- When sharing, your visitors will first have to enter the Mastodon instance where they’d like to share the post.
- You can edit the message, but by default, the message will include the post title and URL, and tags will be added as hashtags at the end.
Field style syncing for the Form Block
We introduced a new Sync Fields Style option for the Form Block to provide you greater flexibility in customizing your forms’ designs. You can enable this option from the block settings in your editor:
Updated Stats dashboard design
We are now defaulting to an updated modern design for the Jetpack Stats dashboard to help provide valuable insights and grow your site.
If you have feedback on the updated design, please share your thoughts on this survey. And if you prefer to continue using the traditional stats for now, there is a toggle in the Traffic section of the Jetpack settings.
