Nice plugin, would like to see....
By ,

... (would like to see) ... a duplicate of the "Clear Log" button on the dashboard area of Simple History, so I don't have to dig down into the plugin when reducing out database size with the "Clear Log" button.

Nice. would Like Export Function and Filter
By , for WP 4.4.2

Great plugin. Good job guys.

It does need an export function and a filter function so you can capture everything a single user has done on the site. Makes it great for development. In fact I bet I can just go ahead and add that functionality. I forgot I can program . LOL. JK.

Everything you need to control your human contributors
By , for WP 4.4.2

If you are not working alone in a project and, want to know/control what everybody does, especially when things gone wrong, this plugin certainly will be very useful for you. Most of people do not need to be flooded with tons of unnecessary information and, in this case, it is good to have an easy to use tool which meets all your current needs.

It lost one star in my evaluation, because in its current version it does not have the ability to limit the log size to a reasonable value (in some cases, it can can lead to a very undesirable growing of your database) or inform the user about the size of the log.

But, if you are an advanced user, always keeping your mind on the database size, it is allright.

Wonderful start
By ,

An audit log for WordPress is sorely missing from the core. This is a great start. Simple - like the title says. Works like a charm, no noticeable performance hit - EXCELLENT!

Good plugin
By , for WP 4.3

Single overview of everything login users do!
Only improvement would be that you have an option to disable the rss feed

Very good, could be even clearer?
By , for WP 4.2.2

Impressive in all the amount of reports availabale, maybe some, like logins, could provide even more info.

perfect plugin, be aware that you need PHP 5.3 for Version 2.
By , for WP 4.0.1

I love this plug, but before upgrading to Version 2 it would have been nice to warn me about the php 5.3 requirement. Since I run 5.2 I had to downgrade the plugin from my backup....thats why 4*, otherwise 5* one of the best and useful wordpress plugins for multiuser pages.
Keep up the good the work!

Very usefull

mysql_query(): The mysql extension is deprecated and will be removed in the future: use mysqli or PDO instead in …/wp-content/plugins/simple-history/index.php on line 261
