To browse, preview, and activate these themes, simply visit the WordPress.com Theme Showcase, select your Jetpack site from the sidebar (if you have more than one), and scroll down to the all-new “WordPress.com themes” section.

It’s now also possible to manage and upload any theme to your Jetpack site from this very same interface. You can also search through the new showcase by theme name (Lodestar!), feature (like Sidebar), color (try Green), type (Restaurant or Portfolio), and more.

There’s more.

Although we’re announcing today that you can use 165 themes for free, we’ll continue adding more to our showcase. Last year alone, we added 11 new free themes, and we’ll be continuing that work to make sure that you always have a fresh look available for your existing or future sites.

Give it a spin. Try searching for a new theme and, as always, contact support for any assistance.

Rich Email Content via Jetpack Subscriptions

If you post regularly on your blog you probably use various shortcodes to embed content on a regular basis (and if you don’t, learn more here as they’re super useful).

A shortcode is usually a line of plain text that might look like this:

shortcode

Jetpack converts this line of plain text into the necessary HTML and JavaScript needed to display the video directly on your blog post or website page.

You can just as easily embed videos from other services, picture galleries, Spotify playlists, Google Maps, and so much more.

Readers subscribing to your site using Jetpack’s (free) email subscriptions service would, until now, receive in their inbox the plain text version rather than the beautiful, embedded, rich version.

The latest version of Jetpack however solves this elegantly. Subscribers now receive email-friendly content and layout for over 200 of our most popular shortcodes so that your emails look the way you intended.

So now, you can expect your emails to look more like the email on the right of this:

email-shortcodes-3

This improvement, we hope, makes your Jetpack experience even better and continues bringing you closer to your readers and customers.

Upgrade to the latest version of Jetpack or install it today for free.

Share It Again: New Social Media Features for Premium and Professional Customers

Sharing your posts on social media is a great way to ensure your site or blog gets traffic. Our Publicize feature makes it easy to automatically share your new posts on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media networks.

But what about your previously published posts? For posts that are always relevant or valuable to new readers, you may want to share them again — weeks, months, or even years later.

That’s why we’re excited to introduce Re-Publicize, a new feature for our Jetpack Premium and Professional users. Re-Publicize allows you to share previously published posts on social networks — with custom messaging for each service, as well.

This is part of the suite of services Jetpack sites can use on WordPress.com, including the ability to manage your site and plugins, write content, and now re-share your posts. Just go to the Blog Posts section of your site on WordPress.com, select Share, and you’ll see the new sharing menu for reposting to your social accounts:

zrzut-ekranu-2017-02-14-o-16-27-30

Then you’re all set!

As a Premium or Professional customer, using Re-Publicize, it is now easier to automatically share existing posts to social media, allowing you to make the most of your content.

We’re excited about this new feature, and we hope you enjoy using it.
