Activity Log – Complete, Ease of Use & Well Supported
By far the one plugin that we install first on any WordPress blog we have ever had has been this one. This continues to be our go to plugin to keep track of what we do for activity.
Even though we are a small team, it is nice to know when we make our own updates, such as which plugins I am installing, updating, and what I have gotten done. This makes it extremely easy to go back also in the event there is a problem during the process.
Depending on how busy your blog is, though, I would highly recommend a hefty database or using a dedicated DB server as this can track a complete ton of data.
Want to monitor and track your site activity?
Find out exactly who does what on your WordPress website. the Activity Log plugin is like an airplane’s black box that logs every activity in WordPress, and lets you see exactly what people are doing on your site.
- Like, if someone is trying to hack your site.
- Or, when a post was published, and who published it.
- Or, if a plugin was activated/deactivated.
- Log suspicious admin activity
- Securing your site by tracking log of all user activity?
Useful, right? Trust us, you won’t understand how you managed your website without it. The plugin is also lightning fast and works behind the scenes, so it doesn’t affect site and admin performance (For optimal performance, we built the plugin so it runs on a separate table in the database).
If you have tens of users or more, you really can’t know who did what. This plugin tries to solve this issue by tracking what users do, and displaying it in an easy to use and easy to filter view on the dashboard of your WordPress site.
This plugin has an awesome team of developers and hosts several language translations if you are outside of the U.S.A.
