Before this version (2.7) of Simple History you could see in the log that a user had been created or changed. But you could not see any details.
With this update however, you can now see a lot of details when a user is created or edited: their username, name, email, webpage, and so on. And when a user is edited you can see from what old value to what new value.
The reason for this is that Simple History is really good at logging things. So if your WordPress blog is getting a really big amount of brute force attacks, all those failed login attempts will be logged in Simple History. Nothing wrong with that, that’s the purpose of the plugin. But the number of rows can be huge – like over a million for some sites. And that can be an issue for some low cost hosts where you have a limited amount of storage/disk space.
Here’s what Simple History is doing to keep the database small – and a solution to keep the number of login attempts down to a minimum:
Version 2.4 of Simple History brings a wanted addition to the event log: when hovering the time of an event the tooltip now displays both the local time and the GMT time of the event. This change makes it easier for admins in different timezones that work together on a site to understand when each event happened.
