Simple History 4.1.0

Version 4.1.0 of Simple History is now available. This release contains smaller additions, fixes, and changes.

👨‍💻 As am working full time on this plugin at the moment I’m finally having time to go through the GitHub issues. If you have found a bug or have a feature request, now is the time to report it to me!


  • Actions simple_history/pause and simple_history/resume to pause and resume logging. Useful for developers that for example write their own data importers because the log can be overwhelmed with data when importing a lot of data. #307
  • clear_log() now returns the number of rows deleted.
  • Added disable_taxonomy_log() to simplify disabling logging of a taxonomy.
  • Function get_db_table_stats() that returns for example the number of rows in each table.


  • Check that array keys attachment_parent_title and attachment_parent_post_type exists in Media Logger. #313
  • Don’t log when terms are added to author taxonomy in Co-Authors Plus. Fixes support thread, issue #238.
  • Don’t load the log or check for updates on dashboard if the widget is hidden.
  • Don’t check for updates on dashboard if a request is already ongoing.


  • Moved filter simple_history/dashboard_pager_size to method get_pager_size_dashboard().
  • Move function get_initiator_text_from_row() to Log_Initiators class.
  • If a filter is modifying the pager sizes then show a readonly text input with pager size instead of a dropdown select. #298
  • Update Chart.js library from 2.0.2 to 4.3.0. Fixes support thread, issue #340.
