JetPack 3.3 announces the death of multi-site managers • WordPress Help

 Jetpack crash

The new version of the megaplugin JetPack, the 3.3 has introduced a new functionality that, at a stroke, services like InfiniteWP or ManageWP are loaded, or at least they complicate survival .

Following in the wake of what Microsoft, Apple or Google have been doing for years, now people of Automattic is incorporating in its megaplugin JetPack all those most popular utilities for users for which previously it would be used other plugins, causing the death of the software on which those new functionalities.

Of course, you are free to use JetPack or others for each utility, but the reality is that most users once install JetPack and see everything that is offered, and what does it do well, no plant ean try other alternatives .

And this is what will surely happen with these wonderful services like ManageWP and my beloved InfiniteWP that, although they have superior virtues and benefits , already have been announced his death with the launch of JetPack 3.3 and its new site management utility .

Okay, yes, it is not integrated in your desktop but you must go to ] to manage your sites and hosted with active JetPack, but neither does ManageWP and the like, which are also managed from " elsewhere " , so the reality is that there is no difference in this regard.

In addition, what for some is an aggressive commercial policy (that everything directs to the service of Automattic for the vast majority is very comfortable, not to mention if you can also manage your sites in that service, something that – by the way – do not offer the other site managers.

Come on, that can be given for dead .

By the way, what can you manage in an integrated manner from the new functionality ?, then almost everything.

In a centralized site you can manage entries, plugins, themes, users, pages, menus, publish entries in any connected blog and change sites easily and immediately, without changing Centralized desktop, which is also very fast, now.

The only caveat is that, at the moment, some administration elements are not activated in but they send you to the classic desktop, but it gives me that it's just at the moment

Here a friend … here some captures of the spawn (pretty, that's it) …

What's new with JetPack 3.3? yes …

  • Customizable video (responsi ve) in BuddyPress
    Compatibility with the new theme Twenty Fifteen
    Visual notice of the active developer mode of JetPack
    Improvements in the JSON Api to manage automatic updates from the site manager
    Labels "title" and "Alt" to images in image carousels

Update or not?

Of course you should, and you should try the new integrated site management utility, and also I know that you will love it .

The risk is that you run the risk of almost not going back to visit your own domains and accommodations to manage your sites, because is so comfortable and easy to do it from that you will end up hooking .

Now is the right way for WordPress? Well coming from Automattic I find a dangerous orientation it is still curious that the empr the one that does the most and is committed to the health and growth of WordPress, precisely with its own flagship product, JetPack, move users away from the native WordPress desktop and " take them " to their service owner and commercial .

It seems to me a step too relevant that they have given as to let it pass without more, not to analyze the consequences it may have, when not too long there are thousands or millions of WordPress users that for months they have not visited their WordPress desktop, the authentic, unique, free and independent, and have become so used to the interface of that the new projects end up not installing a free WordPress but a blog freemium in

At least it's my opinion, I do not know what you'll think about it. The same is that I am very purist or that I do not like to mix concepts in something as beautiful and free as WordPress, precisely on the part of those who in theory should take care of these "things".
