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:

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:

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.

Pro Tip: Personal plan customers benefit from priority support and faster assistance.
