Note: if you got locked out of WordPress activity log refer to Regaining access to the WordPress activity log.
By default, the WordPress activity log (where a record of all WordPress changes is kept) can be accessed only by users with an administrator role. In case of a WordPress multisite installation the site administrators have access to the audit trail of the website they administer and the super admins have access to the multisite network activity log. Tefer to the activity log plugin for WordPress multisite networks for more details.
Allow non administrators to read the WordPress activity log
Use the option Can View Events in the plugin General settings to allow a specific user, or users with a specific WordPress role to view the WordPress audit trail. In the example below we are allowing the WordPress user kypri access to view the WordPress activity log.
Allow users with a specific role to read the activity log
You can also allow all the users with a specific WordPress role to access the WordPress audit trail and see all the recorded changes. To do so simply specify the role instead of the username in the setting mentioned above.
