Good for security purposes
By , for WP 4.3.1

I use this plugin to see who does what.

The most useful feature for me is to register user creation activity. I use this, in combination with other security plugin, to prevent access from hackers that keep exploiting WordPress 4.3.1 and creating administrator users for further hacking. User creation logging (displaying attacker IP) allows me to ban such "users".

A must for every site. Thank you !

Must have

A must on every site!

Very good, nice and useful
By , for WP 4.3.1

In any community/registration based website, this plugin is a must whenever you need to troubleshoot user's actions.
It's the better free plugin doing this task!

Works under WP4.3.1
By , for WP 4.3.1

Well, it worked fully well, but after today's update uploaded pictures don't show image size, reading something like this below each picture:

133 kB JPG {full_image_width} × {full_image_height}

This is most likely a minot bug.

Been using for 3 months and still excellent
By , for WP 4.3.1

I've used this plugin for a few months now. It is simple in the right ways, and fancy in just the right places.

This is one of those plugin I hope never have added features. It doesn't need them!!!

Great Plugin

Fantastic plugin.
Now we can control what's going on :)

simple - but all the more useful!

Simple History is, as the name implies, easy to download, install and configure. It also doesn't do much except recording changes made to the WordPress installation like editing, adding or deleting content. This is extremely useful if multiple persons work on the site to keep track of who did what, so you can easily review changes.

Well built and easy customizable. Great support
By , for WP 4.3.1

Very nice plugin. I added an extra logger for my own plugins. With the help from Pär in the support section everything worked out like a treat!

Working as described!

Working great! Now i can monitor in an Simple WAY!

Thank you.

A MUST if your client has access to the site
By , for WP 4.3.1

I install this on all my sites where the client has access. When something goes wrong, I can backtrack to see recent activity.

The login attempt failures are good, to see what usernames hackers are trying.

I just noticed that this same author wrote "Admin Menu Tree Page View", which I install on ALL my sites. Saves boatloads of time.

P.S. I just donated $5 to the author. Granted this is not much at all, but if EVERYONE donated just $5 it would make a difference. Kind of like voting, if everyone felt their vote didn't count, no one would vote.
