    Simple History

    Add to List

    Simple History shows recent changes made within WordPress, directly on your dashboard or on a separate page.

    The plugin works as a log/history/audit log/version history of the most important events that occur in WordPress.

    Out of the box Simple History has support for:

    • Posts and pages
      see who added, updated or deleted a post or page
    • Attachments
      see who added, updated or deleted an attachment
    • Taxonomies (Custom taxonomies, categories, tags)
      see who added, updated or deleted an taxonomy
    • Comments
      see who edited, approved or removed a comment
    • Widgets
      get info when someone adds, updates or removes a widget in a sidebar
    • Plugins
      activation and deactivation
    • User profiles
      info about added, updated or removed users
    • User logins
      see when a user login & logout. Also see when a user fails to login (good way to catch brute-force login attempts).
    • Failed user logins
      see when someone has tried to log in, but failed. The log will then include ip address of the possible hacker.
    • Menu edits
    • Option screens
      view details about changes made in the differnt settings sections of WordPress. Things like changes to the site title and the permalink structure will be logged.

    Support for third party plugins

    By default Simple History comes with built in support for the following plugins:

    User Switching
    The User Switching plugin allows you to quickly swap between user accounts in WordPress at the click of a button.
    Simple History will log each user switch being made.

    Enable Media Replace
    The Enable Media Replace plugin allows you to replace a file in your media library by uploading a new file in its place.
    Simple history will log details about the file being replaced and details about the new file.

    Limit Login Attempts
    The plugin Limit Login Attempts is old
    and has not been updated for 4 years. However it still has +1 million installs, so many users will benefit from
    Simple History logging login attempts, lockouts, and configuration changes made in the plugin Limit Login Attempts.

    Redirection
    The redirection plugin manages url redirections, using a nice GUI.
    Simple History will log redirects and groups that are created, changed, enabled or disabled and also when the global plugin settings have been modified.

    Duplicate Post
    The plugin Duplicate Post allows users to
    clone posts of any type.
    Simple History will log when a clone of a post or page is done.

    RSS feed available

    There is also a RSS feed of changes available, so you can keep track of the changes made via your favorite RSS reader on your phone, on your iPad, or on your computer.

    It’s a plugin that is good to have on websites where several people are
    involved in editing the content.

    The plugin works fine on multisite installations of WordPress too.

    Example scenarios

    Keep track of what other people are doing:
    “Has someone done anything today? Ah, Sarah uploaded
    the new press release and created an article for it. Great! Now I don’t have to do that.”

    Or for debug purposes:
    “The site feels slow since yesterday. Has anyone done anything special? … Ah, Steven activated ‘naughy-plugin-x’,
    that must be it.”

    API so you can add your own events to Simple History

    If you are a theme or plugin developer and would like to add your own things/events to Simple History you can do that by using the function SimpleLogger() like this:

    <?php
    
    if ( function_exists("SimpleLogger") ) {
    
            // Most basic example: just add some information to the log
            SimpleLogger()->info("This is a message sent to the log");
    
            // A bit more advanced: log events with different severities
            SimpleLogger()->info("User admin edited page 'About our company'");
            SimpleLogger()->warning("User 'Jessie' deleted user 'Kim'");
            SimpleLogger()->debug("Ok, cron job is running!");
    
    }
    ?>
    

    Check out the examples-folder for more examples.
