Excellent plugin to track everything
By , for WP 4.0

The plugin is extremely easy to use and helps you track everything that’s happening on your site. Whether it’s a single user site owner or a website designer managing multiple sites, this plugin has something unique to offer for everyone. You can effectively track changes to your site before they turn into serious issues.

Dangerous and misleading
By , for WP 4.0.1

I am stopping to use this plugin at the version 1.3.1 because it is outright dangerous from the point of view of security. We often say that "an absence of logs is better than false logs" and this is exactly what is wrong with this plugin.

You think that everything is fine with your website but if you look in closer, you will find that the plugin simply was not logging any security relevant information for some time now. This is unacceptable in a security critical component of the website. It creates a false sense of security.

Previously, this plugin loaded the logs with megabytes of information, slowing down the website and providing tons of nonsensical details in between which I would hardly distinguish the important things. That was fixed now but created an even more dangerous aberration.

I hope the author(s) will fix their act some time.

The best security plugin !

Thanks guys.
This is the best security plugin I ever seen.
Very easy to set.

A superior, top-grade plugin
By , for WP 4.0.1

This plugin works well with multisite. Simply network activate it and you can view logs for all sites from the primary site using a convenient drop-down filter.

I was using Audit Trail prior to this plugin and had reviewed others. The deciding factor for me was the level of consistent support and ratio of resolved topics in the support queue.

The plugin design is neat, complete and consistent with the motifs of the current version of WordPress.

The functionality is intuitive, doesn't require a learning curve and works right out of the box.

The best feature of this plugin is that the authors don't hamper the essential functions of the plugin by reserving them as premium options.

Hopefully, the authors continue the exemplary support of the free version of the plugin.

Great plugin but more important: great support
By , for WP 4.0

I'm not affiliated with the developers but I highly recommend buying a few add-ons to support them (and to get to use their premium support, which is awesome).

They're open to suggestions and even integrated a new alert we needed for one of our clients.

Highly recommend and I hope they stay in business for a long time.

Excellent Job!!!

Easy to use and keeps you aware of intruders

It is working again! Version 1.2.8 did not work properly and when I left a message on the free forum it was fixed quickly.

Lets you look at what is happening.

Great plugin.

Very Useful

Logging POST data is the thing I keep coming back for. It's increasingly important to know what the bots are sending! My only request would be to offer a location choice for the log file - plugin folders are often not writable on my installs.

Thank you!
