WordPress Sentinel

This plugin acts as a sentinel that watches over your core WordPress programs (plus installed themes and plugins) and tells you when changes happen.


  • Blew stable tag on the last update so no one automatically updated. Now Fixed!
  • Tweaked the options on the Plugins page so settings shows next to Deactivate.


  • The plugin would occasionally show a mystery change alert when a plugin or them had been changed and then removed. It now handles this situation and removes stored snapshot data on themes and plugins that are no longer installed.


  • Increased location field length for the section table to accomodate extremely long install paths


  • Any folder or file named 'cache' is now always ignored
  • Any folder or file named 'error_log' is now always ignored
  • A new option that enables/disabled checksum evaluation has been added (Default and recommended setting is Disabled)


  • Plugin now allows an entire plugin or theme to be ignored (not watched)


  • Details now sort by path & filename
  • Ignored files are now still ignored after refreshing a snapshot


  • Fixed Security vulnerabilities, thanks to Julio from boiteaweb.fr.
  • Changed "Snapshot Everything" button to "Snapshot Everything New" to prevent untentional overwriting of existing snapshot data.
  • Changed Detail so it also shows current file information (size and date) in red below the snapshot values.
