Check if Jetpack Modules Are Enabled

  1. This will still evaluate to true if Jetpack is de-activated after the option has been set at some point. Adding a check for the class seems to help:

    if ( class_exists( 'Jetpack', false ) ) {
    $jetpack_active_modules = get_option('jetpack_active_modules');
    if ( $jetpack_active_modules && in_array( 'sharedaddy', $jetpack_active_modules ) ) {
    // We're good to go!

  2. We just committed a new function to Jetpack Trunk, and it should be enabled in the next release, Jetpack::is_module_active()

    Then you can just call:

    if( class_exists( ‘Jetpack’ ) && Jetpack::is_module_active( ‘contact-form’ ) ) {}

    Or at least, you will once the next version releases, and the user has their Jetpack updated. :) If you’d like to preserve the backward compatability, you can just do:

    if( class_exists( ‘Jetpack’ ) && in_array( ‘contact-form’, Jetpack::get_active_modules() ) {}
