Jetpack 8.6: show off your photography skills with these new blocks

This release is highlighted by the introduction of Jetpack Scan, which is highlighted in-depth here. It also introduces new blocks for photographers and more customization options for other popular blocks.

Latest Instagram Posts

Use the Latest Instagram Posts to display your most recent images from Instagram on your site. The block updates automatically when you post new images to Instagram.

Image Compare

Use the Image Compare block to place two images side by side (or above and below) and use a slider to reveal differences between the two images.

More customization options for the Form block and the Subscriptions block

We’ve also made improvements to two other blocks you may already be using on your site:

  • The Form block now gives you more options to quickly create a form that fits your needs.
  • You can now customize the entire Subscriptions block: text size, colors, borders, spacing, and alignment.

And more

As always, we’ve also made a lot of other improvements and bug fixes.

  • If you use the Carousel feature, you can now choose to display your images with or without a comment form.
  • We’ve made further changes to Jetpack’s inner workings to improve your site’s performance.
  • We continue to make changes to multiple Jetpack features so they can be used with the AMP plugin; this month we focused on shortcodes and widgets.

    I want to import my Forminator forms and submissions to Jetpack forms. Is there any way to do so?


    • Jeremy Herve says:

      That’s currently not possible. That said, both Forminator and Jetpack forms can be exported to csv files. You could keep those files on your computer and view them with something like Microsoft Excel when needed.
