Good for security
By , for WP 4.1.1

I use this plugin to see who has tried to log in as "admin" or another nonexistent username, then I block ranges of IP addresses using the WordFence plugin.

This is my new favorite WordPress plugin

This plugin serves as the ultimate version history of your site. I highly recommend.

My favorite feature is the changes it records from the theme customizer. You can see your exact changes and get a great idea of what work went into creating your site.

Fantastic plugin!

This plugin is a must have if you are sharing editing responsibility with multiple editors on a site. Nice intuitive design with convenient filtering options. I didn't realize that there were daily denied login attempts, until I saw them in the activity history. Now I realize how important security is.

Great Plugin!

This is a great plugin for checking on who has logged in and updated what on the site. Perfect for sites with a lot of users, and it helps if the client has a problem to track exactly what they did before the problem occurred. Also alerted me to failed login attacks from out of the country - so now I can block the IP addresses. I like the RSS feed function so I can do a quick scan without having to log into the site.

Great plugin with nice design!

Great way to get an overview of visitors and users on your site!

a must-have for multi-author sites
By , for WP 4.1

I'm the admin for a large literary magazine with multiple contributors. With Simple History I can see who's recently logged in and what they did.

Call me a control freak - but I like to track these things. And, if something should go wrong with the site I can see what's been done.

I've been using this plugin since 2012 and it's getting better all the time.

Great idea and execution!

I've known I needed this for a long time and finally looked around for it. After trying out wp-stream, I tried this one and much prefer Simple History! Thanks!

Great plugin!

After the last update, the ability to filter events was added to the dashboard, which is great. I can track all kinds of events on my website and very easily filter them depending on what I am looking for. I have never had any problems with bugs or any kind of malfunction either.

Very Useful when multiple admin logins are active

I've used this plug in with several sites that are in final transition for hand-off to a client. It lets me know if they are looking at or using the site and also, if there is an unexpected change on the site, it gives me a starting point to determine who to question about what happened to make the change.
Great if there are a lot of cooks in the kitchen.
