How to exclude specific post types from the WordPress activity log
The WP Activity Log plugin keeps a log of all the changes done to all post of any type on your WordPress website and multisite network. By default there are two post types on WordPress; post and page. Though your website might have more post types, which in WordPress are called Custom Post Types. For example if you install WooCommerce a new post type product is created on your website.
If you do not want to keep a log of changes done on posts with a specific post type in the WordPress activity log, you can use the exclusion plugin settings to exclude that post type.
Excluding the logging of changes done to a specific WordPress post type
To exclude the logging of changes done to posts with a specific post type:
- Navigate to the plugin’s settings and click on the Exclude Objects tab.
- Scroll down to the Post Types section and specify the post type in the Exclude Post Type placeholder.
- Click Add and Save to save the settings.
In the below example screenshot we are excluding the default WordPress post type post and the custom post type movie.
To remove a post type from the exclusion list click the X icon next to the post type name and save the settings.
