Jetpack 7.4 Adds Business Hours Block and Ability to Share Content Through WhatsApp
Jetpack 7.4 is now available and includes a new Business Hours block. This block contains a toggle that users can set to show whether they’re open or closed.
There’s also a way to add additional times so restaurants, for example, can display when they’re open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. However, I couldn’t figure out a way to add text to label what the hours mean. Also, depending on the theme, the alignment displays incorrectly. You can see the block in action below.
Sunday Closed Monday 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM
5:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Tuesday 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Wednesday 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Thursday 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Friday 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
The Slideshow, Carousel, and Tiled Galleries blocks have all received enhancements to improve their look and performance on mobile devices. The Carousel block also contains better theme compatibility.
WhatsApp is now included in the Jetpack Sharing module. Users can enable it by browsing to Jetpack > Settings > Sharing > Configure sharing buttons. The button supports sharing content through the stand-alone app and the web interface.
Jetpack 7.4 also makes a number of enhancements to the Recurring Payments block such as improving the display of the renewal frequency in the button list and improving the look of the payment modal on mobile devices. This version also requires users to be on the Premium or Professional plan on WordPress.com in order to access the button.
