Known issues

Some plugins, themes, and hosting features are known to conflict with some of Jetpack’s functionality. Until these conflicts are resolved, you can check this list to find out what to do.

The best way to determine if this is a case is to test for a plugin conflict or a theme conflict. If you find a plugin or theme conflict, please reach out to their development team to see if they can fix the issue.


Plugins that Disable Access to XML-RPC

Jetpack depends on the XML-RPC connection in WordPress. Plugins that restrict access to xmlrpc.php will cause issues with Jetpack. You will either need to configure these plugins to allow access to xmlrpc.php or add Jetpack’s IPs to the plugin’s allowlist. Learn more about Jetpack’s usage of XML-RPC.

Plugins that Minify and Combine JavaScript

We have seen issues with plugins that minify and/or combine JavaScript files. If you are having an unexpected issue with Jetpack, it is recommended that you disable this functionality and test the feature. If it works, you will know that the issue is with the modification. 

Plugins that Add “Coming Soon” or “Maintenance Mode” Functionality

Some plugins that add a “coming soon” or “maintenance mode” message to WordPress may prevent Jetpack from communicating with your site. If you are having trouble with a broken Jetpack connection, please disable plugins of this type and try again. Depending on the plugin, it may also be possible to configure them in a way that doesn’t block the Jetpack connection. You will need to consult the plugin’s documentation and/or developers for assistance.

Plugins that Add Anti-Spam Functionality and Jetpack Comments

Jetpack Comments replaces the default WordPress comment form and as a result, anti-spam plugins built to work with standard WordPress comments will not be able to filter comments made via Jetpack Comments.

Custom CSS and WP Engine

Custom CSS will not be applied to visits by search engine bots on WP Engine sites due to a rule on their server to prevent bots from loading dynamic content. This can impact users, for example, whose Custom CSS modifies the layout to meet Google’s mobile-friendly designation. To work around this issue, contact WP Engine support and ask to remove the “Redirect Bots” option or add the Custom CSS directly to your theme’s style.css.


Added June 29, 2023

Some sites hosted by GoDaddy can display a “Hi Jetpack! All Systems go.” message on the site’s landing page when Jetpack’s Downtime Monitor is enabled. If you see this message on your site, change your site’s Sucuri Caching settings to “Site Headers” instead of the recommended setting. Sucuri have instructions for changing this setting here.
