5 Jetpack Tips: CSS, Sidebar Widgets, Comments, Site Verification, Math

WordPress Jetpack Modules in 2016.

Wordpress1. Custom CSS

…With a little CSS and Jetpack, you can make those changes and customize your theme just the way you want to without touching your theme’s files or creating a child theme. And all your hard work is preserved if your theme gets updated!

2. Extra Sidebar Widgets

…The Extra Sidebar Widgets module adds:

  • Google+ Badge Widget, to link your Google+ page to your site.
  • Social Media Icons, for adding icons for the most popular social networks to your sidebar or other widget area.
  • Gravatar Profile, to pull in your Gravatar image along with some of your Gravatar profile data.
  • Gallery Widget, which lets you display a photo gallery or slideshow in your blog’s sidebar.
  • Display WordPress Posts Widget, to display up to ten recent posts from another WordPress.com blog, or another self-hosted WordPress site using Jetpack.
  • Facebook Like Box Widget, for adding a Facebook Like Box for your Facebook Page to a sidebar.
  • Image Widget, which lets you add images to widget areas in your theme
  • Twitter Timeline Widget, to show your latest tweets within a sidebar.
  • RSS Links, for adding links to your blog’s post and comment RSS feeds in your sidebar.

This unassuming feature adds a lot of extras! Try them on your own site — as long as your theme has widget areas, you can use them.
