Fantastic monitering plugin!
By , for WP 4.3.1

Stream is, in my mind, hands-down the best monitering plugin I've ever used on my site. It seems fully compatible with WordPress, and surprisingly doesn't slow down the site at all when in use, which is surprising considering how much it does.

Stream is probably one of the few plugins here on WordPress I'd give a full 5 star rating, but it's earned it. Nice work to whoever developed this! As long as Stream stays compatible with the latest WordPress versions released, I'll be happy to keep using it! :)

Great New Direction for Stream
By , for WP 4.3

I love the new approach taken for v3! I use this on all of my client sites, and it's invaluable. It's easy to detect when changes are made by clients that affect the site. You can use this information to blame and/or scold them, or you can simply identify the problem and quietly fix it.

I've used Stream to:

  • save a ton of time
  • provide better customer service to my clients
  • make my hair shiny and smooth
  • gain 20 lbs of pure muscle mass
  • fix my broken lawn mower
  • give relationship advice to 13 year old daughter
  • memorize Pi to 735 digits
  • find my lost car keys
  • jailbreak an ATM
  • prepare Thanksgiving dinner for 18 people
  • improve my vocabulary
  • download more RAM for my laptop
  • earn my Ph.D. in Ancient Egyptian Algebra
  • attain Enlightenment

Great work, Stream Team!

3.x - kind of like 1.x but better!

Stream is back on track and is a good plugin to have installed, keeping track of what's happening behind the scenes in your WordPress site.

Thanks Stream devs!

Will Be Using Stream Extensively From Now On
By ,

I had no idea Stream existed until one of the devs mentioned it in the WordPress Australia slack chat. I decided to try it out and quickly fell in love with it, it's one of those plugins that you don't know you need until you find it. I did find a couple of issues but these were addressed promptly and they have a good system set up on Github. I believe this plugin could be invaluable for many sites and I'll certainly be recommending it.

Hidden Gem
By , for WP 4.3

This is one of those plugins that you don't know you need, but once you find it and use it, you could not imagine running a WP site without it. As a web developer it is invaluable for seeing who did what that suddenly made the site crash, or all the text turn yellow, and I find it especially useful when letting plugin developers into the back end to fix problems.
Easy to install and use.
A big Thumbs Up to the Stream Team for making such an excellent plugin.

Peace of mind
By Plugin Author, for WP 4.3

It is really comforting when having Stream installed to be able to see the changes that users are making to the site. When working with a less-technical client, having Stream is really helpful in a support request to be able to understand what they may have done wrong.

Disclosure: I've contributed to this project and I am affiliated with it.

3.0 a refreshing return to basics
By , for WP 4.3

I've followed Stream closely over the years and became a "Pro" subscriber with the 2.0 release. Stream had a lot of growing pains and while I was willing to go along with it I wasn't a big fan of the move to the cloud. I've been thrilled to see the "return to basics" with this 3.0 release and I'm excited to see where Stream goes from here.

Love the Reversion to Local Storage
By , for WP 4.3

Great plugin that has gone back to its strong roots. Really handy when working on a site with a team and I want to check out recent activity.

(FIXED) Suddenly a hosted service
By , for WP 4.3

Monetizing the Stream plugin as a hosted service provides a slew of problems such as data retention laws and non-connected installs (intranets etc).

The hosted portion should have been added as an extra addon plugin that would allow data to be collected to the cloud instead of locally.

John Blackbourn summed it up nicely:

Great Plugin

Stream does the job for admin logs and looks great!
