Fortunately in the WordPress world nothing dies, it is renewed, it forks, it recreates . So if you want to continue using OmniSearch you can install this tool on your own.

You do not have to do anything, you just install the plugin and you have a search engine in your WordPress management much more organized and practical.

Alternatives to JetPack

 jetpack fail

As I know many do not like the concept of megaplugin of JetPack, let alone its connection with or the consumption of resources here are a series of plugins that can replace the JetPack modules, some with honors.

So let's take each module and offer, if any, alternatives to JetPack


Being an exclusive service, it alerts you of changes, followers, etc. in that service, there are no alternatives, and surely I need them.


In addition to being able to use Google Analytics statistics, much more complete than any plugin that you can install, there are several plugins that can be a good alternative to the statistics module JetPack statistics, such as WP Stats a veteran with not many options, 3dady stats with real-time statistics, or the very complete one, and my recommended one, WP Statistics


If what you want is alternatives for the automatic publication of your content on the main social networks, besides using IFTTT (the best no doubt), you can replace this JetPack module with plugins like Social Networks Auto-poster much more complete than the JetPack module when supporting a multitude of networks, or 1-click Retweet / Share / Like , that in addition to the automatic publication also offers icons to share. With other modules you can get lazy but in this there are much better alternatives than JetPack by far.


If you like social add-ons and comments JetPack comments nothing like install ] Disqus, LiveFyre or the same Intense Debate there is no discussion here either, you have much better and more complete plugins than the JetPack module. You can also install a plugin that integrates all the systems in one even the comments of Facebook and Google+, so do not do anything about it.


Do you remember the veteran Subscribe to comments ?, it is still available and working perfectly so that your visitors can subscribe to the comments, and if you prefer there is a more modern version . And for the subscription to the entries by email there is not one, there are hundreds of plugins tremendously complete as Subscribe2 or Knews and many others. Here, again, almost the worst option is to use JetPack.


For that nice effect in your image galleries, in addition to an adaptation called Carrousel without JetPack you have the wonderful and professional NextGen Gallery which far exceeds what JetPack does and more.

Post by email

 publish by email
Who wants to publish by email and can do so with a mobile application ?, few people, but hey, there are options to the JetPack module. In fact the same WordPress has that option in the writing settings, and if you think you can use little Post by Email which works the same as the JetPack module.

I like it

This module only refers to users so there are no alternatives, no need to do so.

Related entries

 related entries
Legions are plugins that show related entries, with or without miniatures, from the wonderful Simple Tags to my beloved Zemanta Related Posts and all you've tried over the years, so do not even think about it, because most of them are much more configurable than the JetPack module.


The same thing happens with the module to share entries in social networks through icons, there are so many plugins a thousand times more complete than almost do not know what to recommend. If you like the style of the JetPack module you can use one that imitates and if not the original, ShareDaddy on which it is based.

Spelling and Grammar

 spelling and grammar
The spelling and grammar module is actually an adaptation of After the Deadline which you can replace with a plugin that offers the same utilities TinyMCE Spellcheck . ] Vaultpress

The cloud backup service also finds a lot of alternatives, which go through plugins like BackWPup with which you can make copies in a multitude of services " cloud " such as Dropbox, SkyDrive, Google Drive, Amazon S3 and others.

Gravatar Hovercards

This module shows some nice pop-up cards about the profiles of the visitors that comment , and you can substitute by the original plugin of the platform, this with this free adaptation of the JetPack module or implement it yourself manually .


 ] omnisearch
Maybe Omnisearch is my favorite module of JetPack and, fortunately, if you want to install it you can only do it because there is an exact adaptation that does not require the rest of JetPack. And wait a bit because soon it will be integrated into WordPress.

Contact Form

Among the many possible contact forms for your site I recommend the huge Cforms or the versatile Contact Form 7 both fantastic, much better than the JetPack module.

Google+ profile

 google plus profile
Why would you install a plugin if Google+ itself offers you codes? to do it ?, well that, that nothing of plugins, you create the code in the generator of Google badges and widgets and you stick it where you want it to appear. If you still prefer a plugin you have a huge pile of them .

Tile Galleries

The above mentioned with the carousel is worth to you, and if you you have a plugin alternative that does the same but without JetPack .

Short links ​​

 short links wpme
This, even being an exclusive service of you can have an alternative using JetPack Lite which offers it without needing the connection.

Visibility of Widget

 visibility widgets
This module, which allows to choose what type of input each widget will see is really useful, almost essential for the professional webmaster. Fortunately there are alternatives to the JetPack module, which has not invented anything, because we have wonderful plugins and much more complete as Widget display options Widgets Controller or Widget Logic . What do you like the simplicity of the JetPack module? Nothing, you have it alone and you can also create your own conditional widgets using the WordPress conditional tags .

Custom CSS

 custom css
If you want to modify the CSS of your site without directly modifying the theme files there are alternatives to the JetPack module like Custom CSS Manager ] Custom Code CSS & JavasScript Toolbox or Simple Custom CSS really powerful.

Theme for mobiles

 theme mobiles
Availability a version of our site adapted mobile devices is nowadays essential, and you can get it with honors with the great and complete WPtouch the best in its class.

Embedded shortcodes

If you want to use shortcode s to embed your multimedia elements there are other plugins, like Vipers Video Quicktags that do it wonderfully for years. In fact, any plugin to integrate video, images or documents carries its own shortcodes. I do not recommend getting used to them but if it is your choice, there are not many options. And if you do not have the ShortPack a piece of plugin that offers the same shortcodes as JetPack but without JetPack.


This substitute HTML system for the entries by means of simple marks you can use it without JetPack as it is nothing new and there were already a few plugins to use it as they can be WP Markdown WP markdown live MarkItUP! or Splitdown

Beautiful mathematics

Integrate LaTeX in WordPress does not require JetPack, you have a lot of plugins that get it: WordPress LaTeX WP LaTeX or Easy WP LaTeX .

 extra widgets
All your favorite social networks have a place to create widgets with chronologies and banners ( on Google+ on Twitter on Facebook ), and if not It's a lot, but a huge bunch, of plugins that offer the same thing. For the RSS widget there is already one by default in WordPress and to show images you can use the WordPress editor and paste the code in a text widget, nothing easier.

Infinite Scroll

 infinite scroll
new, you do not need to use JetPack to offer a cover of your site without end, you can activate the infinite scroll in WordPress in a simple way.


Hosting images in a CDN can speed up your website significantly, so using a service of this type, such as Photon, is more than interesting, and you have alternative services to the JetPack module that far outweigh its virtues, and that have their own plugin, such as Cloudinary , CloudFlare InCapsula Coral CDN and JsDelivr .

Single sign-on

 wordpress com single access
] How this module allows you to connect to your site with the s credentials there is no alternative, unless you want it for comments, then you can use any substitute to the JetPack comment system that we have seen before.


There is not one, this old service to monitor the status of the server is a common companion of all the webmaster of the planet and there are dozens of plugins for this utility among which the one from and that of Pingdom .


VideoPress is a video hosting service, paid for, on servers, and its alternatives are well known: Vimeo, Viddler, YouTube, totally free, whose videos you can insert into any WordPress using or Embed .

Improved distribution

 services update
What is that you ask me at the hairdresser, on the bus and in the queue of the cinema ?, it is simply a system to warn the world world that you have published something through the Firehouse . That is, the same as the update services that you have on the WordPress write settings page. You have the default of Pingomatic but you can add hundreds of update services and save yourself JetPack.


 json api
This secure identification system in the cloud for services that they support the JSON API or oAuth2, for which there are also plugins, of course: JSON rest API and orAuth2 Provider respectively.

Conclusions? …

Well clearly you can have everything that JetPack offers and more without using this beautiful but heavy plugin . There are alternatives to practically everything it offers and much more, something that will be especially appreciated by those who only use it for a couple of things or three.

And you? Do you use any other alternative to the JetPack modules? what do you think is better?
