Activity Log for Yoast SEO Plugin

The WP Activity Log plugin can now keep a log of SEO changes users do on posts (post / page / custom post type), and when administrators change the Yoast SEO plugin settings. Let’s dive a bit into the details.

Changes in Yoast SEO Meta Box

If you have used the Yoast SEO plugin you are certainly familiar with the SEO metabox shown in the below screenshot.

When a user changes any of the SEO details or settings, the WP Activity Log keeps a record of the change in the WordPress activity log. The plugin keeps a record of what was updated as well. So for example in case the title was changed, it will keep a log of the title change which also includes the old and new title. Below is the list of Alert IDs the plugin uses to keep a record of such changes:

  • 8801: Changed the SEO title

WordPress Users Sessions Management Module

Event ID 1004 - same user session blocked

In this update of the WP Activity Log plugin we also included the fully revamped WordPress Users Sessions Management module, which you can use to:

  • Terminate all logged in users sessions with just one click (in case you notice suspicious behavior),
  • Limit the number of multiple sessions per WordPress user (ideal for all those subscription websites who want to ensure paid users do not share their login details),
  • Automatically terminate idle logged in WordPress sessions,
  • Configure logged in session override settings,
  • Use text search and search filters to search for logged in users,
  • And much more!
