WP Activity Log
benefits & features
WP Activity Log is the #1 user-rated activity log plugin for WordPress. Here are the features and benefits that make WP Activity Log the most extensive, easy-to-use activity log plugin.
Keep a log of website changes
Whether it’s a content change, a system setting, or a user profile change, the plugin keeps a log of the changes that happen on your website. It has the broadest coverage, so changes don’t go unnoticed on your WordPress.
Comprehensive activity log
When the plugin keeps a log of a change it records all the details you need, such as the date and time, the event ID and severity, the user which did the change and the user’s role, the IP address, and all the other details about the change.
Multisite network support
Keep a log of changes that happen at network level on your multisite network, filter the logs per sub site, allow site admins to access the logs of the sub site they have admin privileges on and more.
Performance & security
The plugin is designed with performance and security in mind. It keeps a log of what logged in users do so it does not affect the front-end of the website and it has no impact on the user experience.
Ensure website compliance
Many compliance bodies such as HIPAA, GDPR, and PCI DSS require website owners to keep a log of the changes that happen on the website, and a log of data access. By keeping an activity log you check another box in your regulatory compliance checklist.
Receive instant SMS & email alerts
Know what is happening on your websites without having to login! Get instantly alerted of critical site changes via SMS messages and emails. You can start right away with the built-in notifications or even create your own notification triggers.
Generate activity log reports
Generate any type of report from the activity log. Criteria are fully configurable, so you are not tied down to a limited number of reports. You can also schedule daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly reports to be sent automatically to your inbox.
Easily track down specific activity
Make free-text searches to easily track down specific WordPress system and user changes. Use the wide selection of built-in filters to fine tune the search results, enabling you to find what you are looking for within just a few seconds.
Manage users sessions in real-time
See who is logged in to your websites and what they are doing in real-time. Remotely terminate sessions, block simultaneous same user sessions, automatically terminate idle sessions, and get notified via email of session statuses.
Keep a log of file changes
Keep a log of all file changes that happen on your WordPress website and any third party code running on it by installing our plugin Website File Changes Monitor, which automatically reports any changes in the activity log.
The plugin has a dedicated sensor for WooCommerce. It keeps a log of customers and order changes, and any other change shop managers do on WooCommerce, such as products, coupons, shipping, and store settings changes.
Activity logs for third party plugins
The plugin also keeps a log of changes that take place on popular third party plugins such as Yoast SEO, Gravity Forms, and WPForms. We also develop a MainWP extension, which enables you to view child sites’ logs in one central dashboard.
Fully configurable activity log
Fine tune the logs to your requirements. Disable individual event IDs, configure log detail level, retention policies, permissions, and more.
Automatically logout inactive users
Protect your site and configure idle user sessions to terminate automatically if users leave their session unattended for an extended time.
Store the logs in an external database
Improve the security posture of your website and store the activity log in an external database. By doing so you also safeguard the integrity of the logs in an unfortunate case of a website hack.
Archive old activity log data
Configure the plugin to automatically archive log data that is older than a specific period to another database. Keep the log organized, easier to search, compact, and blazing fast.
Logs & business systems integration
Mirror the activity log in real time to your central logs management system so you do not have to log in to the websites and see what is happening from one central place. WP Activity Log supports AWS CloudWatch, Loggly, Slack, and others.
Mirror the activity log to log files
Mirror the activity logs to a log file as a backup, while making it easier to import the activity log to your custom logs management system. Configure the plugin to write the activity log to a log file so the logs can be read and parsed by your system.
Send activity logs directly to third party systems
When you send the activity log to a log file or a third party logs management system you can configure the plugin to not write any activity log data to the database, avoiding redundant data.
Export & import plugin settings configuration
Export the plugin settings configuration to keep a backup, or to import the same plugin configuration on other websites, allowing you to have a base configuration and easily propagate it to other websites.
Delete specific activity log data
Need to delete data for a specific user, IP address, or another object? Use the activity log data manager to delete specific data that you do not want in your log.
