A few days ago I installed it. From what little I’ve been able to see, it provides excellent information, much more comprehensive than other similar plugins. I still haven’t found the way to import the visit statistics, possibly I don’t know it well and I can’t find the right option… I’m going to study it a bit these days and any questions I’ll come back to, thank you very much for this plugin. Greetings.

I think I tried all the activity logging plugins out there, looking for one that could precisely track all development changes on my site. Apparently something about wordpress architecture makes this very difficult, because none of them could track everything. This one came closest though. This free version has real utility, which is a nice change from some of the bait and switch freemium plugins around here these days. But I found the premium turned on a few extra capabilities that I wanted, so since it was cheap, I went that route.

I needed an activity log to keep track of changes made my editors and other users with custom roles for a social club website. I tried several before finding one that mostly met our needs. Then I came across this plugin and was extremely impressed. I personally find the layout much cleaner and easier read than other solutions. This free version does more than the other free plugins I’ve tried.

The plugin goes very deep. We’ve just tried the free version but so far very impressed. We plan to subscribe for a paid plan. The plugin looks relatively new but it offers more than other activity log plugins with hundreds of thousands downloads(!!!). It helps you track everything that happens on the admin page. I hope this plugin keep developing to become only better. Good job, guys!
