Support » Plugin: WP Activity Log » [Resolved]: Admin Spam

  • Update: The admin area spam was deemed a bug by the developers. Rating revised to reflect the change and the fast developer reply. A huge thank you to their team for keeping the admin area clean!

    The pluging works as advertised. I’ve yet to use it long enough to provide a full review, so I am reluctant to just drop 5 stars. Be prepared for a great deal of information to be logged! I’ll continue to monitor the performance of the plugin. While some reviews have stated the plugin’s logs eventually bloat and slow down the site, I have yet to experience that. I’ll update this review as I gain more experience with the plugin.

    The plugin works as advertised, HOWEVER unless you like spam showing up in your admin notification areas, don’t install this plugin. The annoying trend of spamming the notification area on all admin pages leads to constantly having to dismiss messages that show up on every stinking page in the admin area, for all users. In only takes a few of these spammers messages to take up 1/3 to 1/2 of your screen area and you get the “privilege” of having to dismiss every one of them on every admin page you access. Let these developers know this is NOT acceptable by your ratings or by NOT installing this plugin.

    Thank you for the review @studiogrynn.

    In regards to admin notices, this was a bug in the last build and some messages where showing up when they were not supposed to. Please update your plugin to version for the issue to be fixed.

    In fact all our admin messages typically are restricted to the plugin pages. We do not like admin messages that show up on all WordPress pages and never do it ourselves, apart from this case which was a bug.

    Thank you for using the plugin and for the understanding. Appreciate if you can update the review after updating the plugin.
