WP User Activity

Description

WP User Activity is the best way to log activity in WordPress. Activity can be sorted, filtered, and viewed per-user, along with session data for logged in users and IP addresses & user-agents for others.

Activity is broken down into object “Types” and “Actions.” Types are the objects being acted upon, and actions are what is being done to them. If you’re familiar with BuddyPress, this should feel pretty comfortable.

FAQ

Does this work with custom post types & taxonomies?

Yes. It will work perfectly with all post-types & taxonomies that define their own labels. Ones that don’t are mocked using the post type ID.

Can I create custom activity types & actions?

Yes. The autoloader can be filtered, so adding new object types is as simple as:

add_filter( 'wp_get_default_user_activity_types', function( $types = array() ) {
    $types[] = 'Your_New_Type'; // class that extends WP_User_Activity_Type
    return $types;
} );

The WP_User_Activity_Type_Taxonomy class is a good example to start with, if you’d like to create your own actions. It registers simple create/update/delete methods, with easy to understand messages & integrations.

Does this create new database tables?

No. It uses the WordPress custom post-type and metadata APIs.

Does this modify existing database tables?

No. All of the WordPress core database tables remain untouched.

as @pavelword says on August 30, 2021 I don´t write reviews often, and almost never negative ones. But this plugin is coded in such a way that it logs the user activity into the wp_posts table. The same table, that you want to have as clean as possible will end up absolutely taken over by this plugin. Question to the developer: why doesn´t your plugin use separate table? To understand: I inherited a wordpress instance, where the wp_posts database grew to be over 250 MB, of the 575.652 entries were 560.000 entries generated by this plugin! This will of course affect the overall speed. It has taken me hours to find why my wp_posts table is so bloated. for anyone searching: this plugin adds new rows into the following table: wp_posts column: post-type entry: activity my review: After installing that plugin and I write a .httpdocs to block ousite logins at wp-admin folder it cant works. everyday hundreds of activity I think the developer use th secret user names to show us activity works fine.. I THINK NO

often than not i forget the activity that i did especially when working on a multisite. this helps a lot and also very very fast and uses wp's native UI and even language where in my boss can actually understand. so this one i think is a must use

According to my Plugin Performance Profiler tests it's the fastest log plugin.
