New Statistics WordPress Reports

In this new updates of the WP Activity Log Reports Add-On we also introduced the Statistics reports. These reports allow you to see how many times a user logged in, or how many pages the user visited and more. Below is a complete list of the statistics reports you can generate with the new Reports Add-On:

  • Number of logins for a user
  • Number of logins for users with a specific role
  • Number of views for a user
  • Number of views for users with a specific role
  • Number of published content for user
  • Number of content for users with a specific role.

You can also create a report with a list of all the different IP addresses every username used, or logged in from, as seen in the below screenshot. This report is handy if you want to ensure that for example a paid membership is not being shared by multiple users.

A sample of a WordPress Report

To create a statistics report simply click on the Statistics tab at the top of the Reports admin screens, select the criteria and specify the username or role. You can also specify a date range for the report. For example in the screenshot below I am setting the criteria to generate a report to see how many pages, posts or custom post types the users with Editor role has viewed.
