I started out using the free version and eventually upgraded to the paid license so I could keep the logs longer. I use this on all of our sites. The reporting is clear and very useful! Be sure to go to settings and turn on tracking after you install it! That's the one thing I noticed could be easy to miss the first time you add the plugin.

This plugin doesn't seem to work at all...not the free version anyway. I installed it, enabled tracking for all posts types, go and view pages and posts and nothing ever shows up in the log.

I was looking for something to track users on our website. This plugin is exactly what I needed. You can track activity and users. You can see who visited which pages, and the referring page they came from. The premium version gives you even more useful features like tracking only users who are logged in, additional view options, and so on. Excellent plugin, highly recommended!!

It's a good starting point but needs some work: 1) Extending the periods for logs to be retained - two weeks is not enough for most purposes. 2) The "settings" button URL is hard-coded so this only works for sites on a top level domain. 3) There is no export functionality.

This is a great plugin, but I'm finding that the tracking for portfolio and posts to be a bit inconsistent. I'm not always getting the correct data logged from my testing. The other issue is that the plugin only allows a 2 weeks retention of history which is kind of short. It'd be great if it could go up to 30,60,90 days. Finally, an export to CSV, JSON feature would be great. I know it's free, but these are features I think people would be willing to pay for. It's one of the only plugins out there that allows for tracking of logged in user behaviour.
