QR Post

The QR Post feature will automatically generate a QR code for your published posts allowing visitors quick access to the post. When scanned, the QR code will link visitors to your post.

Requirements

The QR Post feature is activated by default.

Get Your QR Code

  1. Open an existing published post on your site or create a new post.
  2. Click on the Jetpack icon in the post editor, then locate the QR Code section in the sidebar.
  3. Click on “Get QR Code”.

Once you click on “Get QR Code” the QR Post code will appear in the center of your screen. You’ll have the option to download or close the pop-up. Once you have clicked download, you can click the close (X) to dismiss the QR Code from your screen.

If your site has a custom logo set, the logo will be shown in the center of the generated QR code. For help on setting your own site icon, see How to Set WordPress Favicon.

Your downloaded QR Code will save as a .png image which allows you to share it anywhere you desire. Anyone who comes across your QR Code will be able to scan the code with their smartphone and be forwarded to your published post.

Troubleshooting

How do I make sure the QR Code is working?

You can always test the QR Code before distributing or sharing the code. Just scan the code with your smartphone to make sure the post is visible.

My Site Icon/Favicon is not showing in the center of the QR Code.

If you recently changed your site icon/favicon, it may take a few seconds for the change to occur in the code. If your icon is still not showing after waiting, clear your browser cache – you can learn how to clear your browser cache here.
