We just released version 1.2.3 of our WordPress security monitoring plugin WP Activity Log plugin. This version of the plugin ships with an improved database structure which allows better and more efficient monitoring of large WordPress and WordPress multisite websites with high traffic.
More Robust Database Structure & Better Monitoring
Lately we received a number of support tickets related to the database structure and performance of the plugin, especially when running on very busy WordPress and WordPress multisite websites. We have taken action upon these support requests and addressed the issue by building a more robust database structure for the plugin that allows it to work much better and more efficiently on high traffic WordPress websites.
Improved Settings Page
We also noticed that many users were enabling the developer options, hence if they had a theme, plugin or any other WordPress component that was generating errors the plugin was generating large numbers of alerts thus increasing the load on the WordPress database.
Therefore we have moved the developer options behind a link and added a warning that developer options should only be enabled on testing, staging and development websites and not on live websites. During the plugin update process such options will also be disabled.
WP Activity Log Plugin Available in German
WP Activity Log is now also available in German thanks to Mourad Louha.
