…Before we continue, just a quick word on Jetpack as a plugin.…Many will argue that Jetpack is a bit of…a bloated solution just for getting stats onto your site.…And that would be true, as you can see when you go into the Jetpack settings.…If you scroll down, there are a lot of different cards and a…lot of different functionality that's introduced…to your site when you activate Jetpack.…In many case, you may want to use some of or all of the features…within Jetpack and in that case having the full version of Jetpack installed is fine.…
However, if you only want WordPress.com stats from…Jetpack, I have a better solution for you.…If you go to the WordPress plugin…directory, you'll find a plugin called Jetpack Light.…What this plugin does is it removes all the modules from…Jetpack except for the stats module and the WP.me shortlinks module.…And these are the two base features of Jetpack that most sites…will want regardless of whether or not they want all the other stuff.…So, if you're only looking for stats from Jetpack and nothing else.…
