Why You Should Use
WP Activity Log

The Most Comprehensive WordPress Activity Log

It is all in the detail! When a user change something in a post you need to know what they have changed in the post and not just that the post has been changed. A Post has been updated in the log leaves a lot to be desired for – what has changed though?

The WP Activity Log keeps a log of every little detail in the log. It reports if the URL, category, date, status, visibility, author or anything else is changed in a post.

If the content of a post is changed you can also see the content changes.

For every change in the log the WP Activity Log plugin also reports the user who did the change, when the change happened with millisecond precision, and the IP address from where the change originated.

Best Coverage of WordPress Changes

You cannot know that something happened on your WordPress if the plugin does not keep a log of it. This might sound like common sense, but it isn’t. In fact most other WordPress activity log plugins do not have a broad coverage.

  • Content (posts, pages, posts with custom post types)
  • Comments
  • WordPress users profiles & activities
  • Plugins & Themes
  • Menus & Widgets
  • File uploads, deletion and file Changes
  • WordPress settings & multisite networks
  • WordPress Database
