Quite a while back I installed Jetpack which allowed interested sites to have their posts automatically post to social media sites like Facebook and Twitter via the Publicize function. In the past week I’ve had two libraries report that this no longer seems to be working for them. In both cases, the connection between Jetpack and WordPress.com has been lost.
So, if this is a feature that you previously set up, please make sure that it’s still working. You can do this by checking to see if your most recent post was sent to your social media site(s). If not, log into your dashboard and select Jetpack from the menu. If you see a large green area at the top of the page telling you to “Connect to Get Started” this means your connection has been lost and needs to be reestablished.
The Setting Up Jetpack and Publicize videos will walk you through the steps needed to get you up and running again. You will need your WordPress.com account login information to get this to work. (There is no need to sign up for another WordPress.com account.)
If you also were using the Statistics and/or Subscription services from Jetpack, you may need to set those up again too.

We have discovered that Web sites are loading but if you click on a blog post’s title to get to the full post, browsers are timing out. We are aware of the problem and are actively working on a solution.
We’ve upgraded to WordPress 4.1. There’s just one thing that you’ll probably notice: the icons available when you click on an image that’s been inserted into a post or page. Here’s a short video that describes the change.
Here at the end of 2014 I get the pleasure of announcing three new sites: Three rivers Library System, Walthill Public Library, and Wisner Public Library. These three additions, along with the closing of the sites for the Meridian, Northeast, and Republican Valley library system sites, brings our 2014 total to 70. Here’s to increasing that number in 2015.
