- In this movie we'll look at adding…the Jetpack plugin to our site.…Now there's a little bit more involved…with Jetpack than with the average plugin,…so let's walk through this installation together.…From the WordPress Admin we'll go to Add New Plugins.…And you can either search for Jetpack,…or in this case it's already at the top of the page,…So let's go ahead and click Install Now…and this will install the latest version of Jetpack.…Then we'll go ahead and activate it.…Once Jetpack is activated you'll see that…it adds Jetpack to your menu, and then also…gives you this message to connect to WordPress.com.…
In order to use all of the features of Jetpack,…we need to connect to a WordPress.com account.…Don't worry if you don't already have one;…It's quick, and free to setup.…I'm gonna open this in a new browser window.…And you can see that it wants me to enter…my WordPress.com username and password.…If you need to get one, click this "Need an Account?" link…and you just fill out your e-mail address,…username, password and sign up.…
