Jetpack plugin by the WordPress team is no doubt one of the most popular WordPress plugins. By installing just this one plugin, you’ll get lots of additional features for your WordPress – tiled gallery, social sharing button, Custom CSS editor, Widget Visibility and more. However, one thing that annoy me is that Jetpack requires users to login with their WordPress.com in order to use most of the features.
For my own site, that shouldn’t be a huge problem. However, when working on a client site, it really bothers me to create a temporary account to be used for the site.
Luckily, there are ways to enable Jetpack development mode. To enable this feature, you may use one of the options below:
1. Enable the development mode via
define( 'JETPACK_DEV_DEBUG', true);
2. Enable the development mode using
jetpack_development_mode filter. This code should go into your plugin file or
functions.php file of your current theme :
I hope this tutorial helped you to enable the Jetpack development mode. By enabling the development mode, you don’t have to login to your WordPress.com in order to use all the features in Jetpack on your development site.
