You might have noticed that by now we have developed quite a few activity log extensions for third party plugins. We have an activity log extension for WooCommerce, Yoast SEO, WPForms, Gravity Forms, MainWP and a few others.
To manage all these extensions, and the many others that we have planned, we have created a code core template, so all these extensions can be easily maintained.
In this release, we focused on updating the core code that all the extensions use, which is more efficient and uses the new activity log events definition system in the main plugin: WP Activity Log.
So without wasting any more time, let’s dive right in to see what’s new and improved in this update.
Improved events’ text & more efficient / better performing code
With the new events’ definition we also improved the text in the events. Now the messages in the events for each extension are better written. This change improves the readability of the WordPress activity logs, therefore making it easier to understand when scrolling through the Activity Log Viewer.
New refactored code that is much lighter and way more stable
This update not only introduces better events and logs, but also a number of performance improvements, much more efficient code, and a number of bug fixes.
With the new code the extensions use much less resources, yet it is easier for us to troubleshoot any issues users might encounter.
Update all extensions together to benefit from the new core code
If you are using multiple extensions, you should update all the extensions together as this update also includes some breaking changes in terms of backward compatibility.
Use WP Activity Log to keep a log of changes your users, and you do on some of the most popular used WordPress plugins. See the full list of extensions for third party plugins that we develop.
