Over 30.000 websites monitor admin changes with Simple History

For a long time the stats-section of this plugins page over at wordpress.org have felt like it was “stuck”. Always showing “20.000 active installs”…

Today however, it did finally update – to 30.000 active installs!


It feels very good to know that Simple History is trusted by that many sites and even more users.

It’s also a good sign that the support page has no new support questions since over a week. Over 30.000 sites using the plugin, but still no users in need of help. That’s just great!

My goal with Simple History has always been to create a plugin that’s stays out of your way until you need it. So far I think I’ve managed to do that with Simple History: you just install it – and then you don’t need to do anything. No configuration. No setup. No coding. It just works.

Then maybe after a week you need to see who did install a specific plugin or see who switched to a new theme. And that’s when you go to the history page and find the information you need.
