Excellent post here. JetPack seems very groovy so far. We also like the concept of plugin consolidation.

Your blog must be either hosted on WordPress.com account or you don’t have Administrator Privileges to add/edit plugins.


Lori January 27, 2014 at 1:39 am

So how do you get the Administrator privileges to add or edit a plugin?


Aky Joe January 27, 2014 at 2:44 am

It may sound loopy, but only an Administrator can get those privileges.
