Thank you for this extremely useful plugin!
Keep up the good work!

Great plugin and support
By , for WP 4.0

Works seamlessly and captures all events with useful icons, URL's, and timestamps. Also has pruning in place (based on rolling time period or total # of events). There was an issue with pruning not working recently but support is on top of it and they reply quickly.

Nice Plugin and quick support
By , for WP 4.0

One of my must have security plugins in WordPress and the support is also very quick if you've got a problem with it.

Kills my CPU
By , for WP 4.0

I am runnnig a dedicated server with 2 sites (under multisite). The plugin kills my CPU when it shows the logs. It takes the CPU to 100% for several seconds.

I guess the query's are not efficient. The rest of the plugin it's ok and very usefull, but for the moment I had to turn it off.

Okay for small sites, bad for high-traffic sites
By , for WP 3.9.2

Had only good things to say about this plugin when I started using it for some of my clients' smaller projects, so I installed it on 3 of a client's high-traffic sites. My bad.

I saw at least a 500% increase in server load (database and cpu) after the last couple of updates. Tweaking apache, mysql and setting up nginx on my site's server didn't alleviate the problem, so I deactivated the plugin.

It's a bit of a shame it can't be used for bigger sites, as I really like the plugin.

just 5 stars.

An Invaluable Plugin That Enables You To Monitor Site Activity
By , for WP 3.9.2

We only have limited users and posts on our WordPress site, but we have been hacked before and this plugin makes it easy to see who has logged into the site (or attempted to), and what activity has taken place (new posts, plugins changed etc).

Each log entry shows the user id, avater, role and most importantly the IP Address, so for us this is invaluable.

On a site with larger volumes of activity you might need to limit what is shown in the log, but this is all configurable via the Settings option.

Contrary to what some other reviews have said, I haven't noticed any performance problems with PHP or SQL on this plugin. Maybe this is something that has been fixed, but in any case as regards the log taking up a lot of space in the database, you can control it's size.

I definitely feel a lot safer being able to see what activity is taking place on our site and highly recommend this plugin. Support is also first class.

Great plugin

Just what you need to make sure that everything is going well on your WordPress site.

Support is top notch and very helpful.

WP Security Audit Log
By ,

Well What can i say with this program in conjuction with wp-ban i can weed out both the spammers and the people who wish to try to hack into my admin account. Only real drawback is you need to contact them to get the list of numbers to enter into the array to delete logs if you dont delete set to a short enough time.

All in all a good plugin.
