Using the Jetpack Extension in WordPress
In order to either connect to WordPress through the mobile application or desktop application, your ‘self hosted’ WordPress site must be connected to a WordPress account. To do this you must use the Jetpack plugin. In this guide I will be explaining how you install the Jetpack plugin and also connect it to your WordPress account.
Step 1. Create a WordPress Account
Firstly, you will need a WordPress account. If you do not already have one visit the sign up page. Follow the steps on the WordPress sign up in order to do this.
Step 2. Open your WordPress Site
Now you have signed up, leave the WordPress site. Navigate to the NetWeaver Control Panel and in the search bar search ‘Installatron’.
Select the Installatron option.
Select the ‘My Applications’ tab at the top.
Scroll down to your WordPress Site and select the link under the site title which ends in ‘/wp-admin’.
You will now be redirected to your WordPress site.
Step 3. Install Jetpack
On this page, on the left hand side menu select ‘Plugins’ and ‘Add New’.
If not already on the page, search for ‘Jetpack by WordPress.com’.
Install Jetpack and activate it.
Step 4. Setting up JetPack
Once Jetpack launches select ‘Connect to WordPress.com’.
It will now prompt you to create an account, we did this in step 1, so instead at the bottom select ‘Already have an account? Sign in’.
Sign in using your login and password details for your WordPress account you made earlier.
Once you have signed in successfully, select ‘approve’.
Once it is connected you will be prompted to chose a plan.
I recommend you select ‘Start with free’ as many of these features are included with your NetWeaver plan.
You have now successfully setup Jetpack with your WordPress site.
