Track changes on your WordPress site
Keeps track of changes that users on you site make – like what pages do they edit (and what changes did they make), what plugins do they install, what images do they upload, and so on.
Simple History is pretty much the number one essential tool for WordPress sites with multiple admins, authors, editors, or basically any other kind of user.
All the info you need right at your fingertips.
All logged activities in Simple History includes carefully selected information for each event. Where many other plugins only show a short message Simple History shows the important details.
When you install a plugin you will see information about the author and a the url to the plugin. When an image is uploaded you will see a thumbnail of the image and its size. Change a post and information about the changes will be shown.
Find old history events with the easy to use search function.
If you need to find past events the search and filter feature is here for you.
Use filters to quickly dig down events by for example free text search, event type, log level, user, or date.
Multiple log levels. Because not all events are equally important.
Every logged event in Simple History get assigned one of the log levels specified in The Syslog Protocol. There are 8 severities specified and they help you keep your history categorized and easy to filter.
For example a failed login attempt may be of severity warning, but a successful login may only be of severity notice.
Easy to extend
Simple History has an API that developers (or non-developers too!) can use to extend the plugin. Use the History API to customize the audit log to log basically anything. Or create your own logger class and make all your logged entries searchable and filterable.
wp simple-history list command will give you a listing of the latest events. And the list is available as JSON too, just pass argument
format=json to output the list in JSON format instead of a ASCII table.
