Why can’t I find it? Can you help me?
My client had decided to take advantage of Jetpack’s module and not using a separate sitemap plugin.
But they were exasperated with how Jetpack modules were organized in different pages; they couldn’t find the option to enable Sitemaps.
I said I was sorry they were frustrated, explained where the module was located, and walked them through the steps of enabling it.
They were happy to have it set up. Before we ended our phone call, my client asked me:
Why is it so hard to find Jetpack modules? Can’t I see them in one list?
Yes, you can see them in one list.
Here’s what I shared with my client.
View Jetpack’s Modules in One List
Once you’ve logged into your site:
- Go to Jetpack > Dashboard
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Debug, which opens the Jetpack Debugging Center page
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Access the full list of Jetpack modules available on your site
- Viola! The list of all the Jetpack modules displays
What You Can Do in Jetpack List View
By default, the list of all the Jetpack modules initially displays in alphabetical order.
But you can change the view by using the Active or Inactive options.
In addition, you can use the Sort option to view the modules by Newest or Popular.
As you view the list of modules, you’ll see a thick blue border to the left of each module, which indicates the module is active on your site.
The checkbox next to each module allows you to disable or enable a module.
To change the settings of activated modules, you’ll need to hover over the module to display the Configure option.
It’s frustrating when you have to search through multiple screens to find the Jetpack module you want.
Following these steps, you can view all Jetpack modules in one list so you can enable/disable modules as you choose.
Personally, I don’t understand why the option takes so many steps.
I’d like to see View all Jetpack modules in one list link at the bottom of the Jetpack Dashboard page.
