Simple History – user activity log, audit tool

Beschreibung

Simple History zeigt dir die letzten Änderungen an, die in WordPress vorgenommen wurden – entweder direkt auf dem Dashboard oder auf einer separaten Seite.

Das Plugin fungiert als Log-/Verlaufs-/Protokoll-/Versions-Aufzeichnung der wichtigsten Ereignisse, die bei WordPress vorkommen.

Standardmäßig bietet Simple History folgende Funktionen:

  • Beiträge und Seiten
    schau dir an, wer einen Beitrag oder eine Seite hinzugefügt, aktualisiert oder gelöscht hat
  • Anhänge
    schau dir an, wer einen Anhang hinzugefügt, aktualisiert oder gelöscht hat
  • Taxonomien (eigene Taxonomien, Kategorien, Schlagwörter)
    schau dir an, wer eine Taxonomie hinzugefügt, aktualisiert oder gelöscht hat
  • Kommentare
    schau dir an, wer einen Kommentar bearbeitet, freigegeben oder gelöscht hat
  • Widgets
    erhalte Infos darüber, wenn jemand ein Widget in einer Sidebar hinzugefügt, aktualisiert oder gelöscht hat
  • Plugins
    Aktivierung und Deaktivierung
  • Benutzerprofile
    Info über hinzugefügte, aktualisierte oder gelöschte Benutzer
  • An- und Abmeldungen von Benutzern
    Du siehst, wann sich ein User an- oder abgemeldet hat. Auch fehlgeschlagene Logins werden registriert (eine gute Art, Brute-Force-Angriffe zu erkennen).
  • Fehlgeschlagene Anmeldeversuche
    Du siehst, wenn jemand erfolglos versucht hat, sich einzuloggen. Der Logeintrag enthält dann auch die IP-Adresse des möglichen Hackers.
  • Menü-Änderungen
  • Options-Einstellungen
    Du siehst Änderungen an unterschiedlichen Einstellungen von WordPress. Dinge wie Änderungen des Seiten-Titels oder der Permalink-Struktur werden aufgezeichnet.
  • Privacy page
    when a privacy page is created or set to a new page.
  • Data Export
    see when a privacy data export request is added and when this request is approved by the user, downloaded by an admin, or emailed to the user.
  • User Data Erasure Requests
    see when a user privacy data export request is added and when this request is approved by the user and when the user data is removed.

Unterstützt Drittanbieter-Plugins

Standardmäßig unterstützt Simple History bereits die folgenden Plugins:

Jetpack
The Jetpack plugin is a plugin from Automattic (the company behind the WordPress.com service) that lets you supercharge your website by adding a lot of extra functions.
In Simple History you will see what Jetpack modules that are activated and deactivated.
(The creator of Simple History recommends this plugin and its brute force attack protection functions btw. It’s a really good way to block unwanted login attempts from malicious botnets and distributed attacks.

Advanced Custom Fields (ACF)
ACF adds fields to your posts and pages.
Simple History will log changes made to the field groups and the fields inside field groups. Your will see when both field groups and fields are created and modified.

User Switching

Das Plugin User Switching ermöglicht es, mit einem Klick zwischen Benutzeraccounts in WordPress zu wechseln. Simple History zeichnet diese Benutzerwechsel auf.

WP Crontrol
The WP Crontrol plugin enables you to view and control what’s happening in the WP-Cron system.
Simple History will log when cron events are added, edited, deleted, and manually ran, and when cron schedules are added and deleted.

Enable Media Replace
Mit dem Plugin Enable Media Replace kannst du Dateien in der Mediathek einfach ersetzen, indem du eine neue Datei hochlädst. Simple History zeichnet Details über die alte und die neue Datei auf.

Limit Login Attempts
Das Plugin Limit Login Attempts ist alt und wurde seit 4 Jahren nicht aktualisiert. Es hat jedoch immer noch über 1 Million aktive Installationen, daher werden viele Benutzer davon profitieren, dass Simple History Login-Versuche, Aussperrungen und Konfigurations-Änderungen, die in „Limit Login Attempts“ vorgenommen werden, protokolliert.

Redirection
The redirection plugin manages url redirections, using a nice GUI.
Simple History will log redirects and groups that are created, changed, enabled or disabled and also when the global plugin settings have been modified.

Duplicate Post
Mit dem Plugin Duplicate Post können Benutzer
Seiten und Beiträge eines beliebigen Typs duplizieren.
Simple History protokolliert, wenn ein solches Duplikat angelegt wird.

Beaver Builder
The plugin Beaver Build is a page builder for WordPress that adds a flexible drag and drop page builder to the front end of your WordPress website.
Simple History will log when a Beaver Builder layout or template is saved or when the settings for the plugins are saved.

RSS-Feed der Änderungen

Es gibt auch einen RSS-Feed der Änderungen, so kannst du mit deinem Lieblings-RSS-Reader auch auf deinem Smartphone, iPad oder Computer den Überblick über die Änderungen behalten.

Es ist ein nützliches Plugin für Websites, bei denen mehrere Personen an der Erstellung und Pflege von Inhalten beteiligt sind.

Das Plugin funktioniert einwandfrei auch in Multisite-Installationen von WordPress.

Beispiel-Szenarios

Verfolge, was andere tun:
„Hat heute schon jemand was gemacht? Ah, Sarah hat die neue Presse-Erklärung hochgeladen und einen Artikel dazu geschrieben. Klasse! Dann muss ich das nicht machen.“

Oder auch zur Fehlersuche: „Die Seite fühlt sich so langsam an seit gestern. Hat jemand etwas besonderes gemacht? … Ah, Steven hat ‚boeses-plugin-x‘ aktiviert, das muss es sein.“

API so you can add your own events to the audit log

Wenn du Theme- oder Plugin-Entwickler bist und eigene Vorgänge/Ereignisse zu Simple History hinzufügen möchtest, kannst du das, indem du die Funktion SimpleLogger() benutzt:

<?php

if ( function_exists("SimpleLogger") ) {

        // Most basic example: just add some information to the log
        SimpleLogger()->info("This is a message sent to the log");

        // A bit more advanced: log events with different severities
        SimpleLogger()->info("User admin edited page 'About our company'");
        SimpleLogger()->warning("User 'Jessie' deleted user 'Kim'");
        SimpleLogger()->debug("Ok, cron job is running!");

}
?>

Rezensionen

Awesome, thanks to this plugin, you really know what's happening on your website.
26. Juli 2022
Simple and yet very powerful! Exactly what I was looking for. Kudos to developper! Thanks
23. Juni 2022
This seems to meet the needs of some financial-services clients who want to keep track of edits to their websites. It is also useful just in general to check on who-did-what-and-when. Also, when you have a host like WPengine that doesn't want your WordPress site to have Revisions enabled, this provides some level of "anecdotal backup" for peace of mind. And, when your client says they didn't mess up that page, you've got pretty clear evidence that, yes, they did: An audit trail from the point of login to the moment when they deleted that important Post they can't find for some reason. The 3.3.0 version keeps a log for a month, which is generally sufficient, but apparently with some code you can add to your functions.php in a theme, you can increase this duration. The reporting is really easy to understand, and there is a certain amount of filtering if you want to see only specific events, such as failed logins.

  • Fixed: Error when third party plugin passed arguments to the get_avatar filter. #288
  • Changed: If Gravatars are disabled in WordPress („Discussion“ -> „Show Avatars“ is unchecked) then Simple History respects this and also does not show any user avatars in the activity feed. A new filter has been added that can be used to override this: simple_history/show_avatars. #288
  • Update translations. Props @kebbet. See https://docs.simple-history.com/translate for information how to update or add translations of the plugin.

  • Added: Plugin installs now save required version of PHP and WordPress.
  • Changed: Plugin install source is now assumed to be „web“ by default.
  • Changed: Attachment updates are no longer logged from post logger since the media/attachment logger takes care of it.

  • Fixed: Post logger now ignores changes to the _encloseme meta key.

  • Added: Num occasions in RSS feed is now wrapped in a <p> tag.
  • Removed: „Simple Legacy Logger“ is removed because it has not been used for a very long time.

2.39.0 (January 2021)

2.38.0 (November 2020)

  • Changed: It’s now possible to log things before the after_setup_theme hook by using the SimpleLogger() function. Before this change calling SimpleLogger() before after_setup_theme, or on after_setup_theme with a prio smaller than 10, would result in a fatal error (Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Class 'SimpleLogger' not found). Props https://github.com/JoryHogeveen.

  • Updated: lots of code to be formatted more according to PSR12.

  • Fix join parameter order for PHP 7.4.
  • Update donate link. It’s now https://www.paypal.me/eskapism.

  • Fehler im Beaver-Builder-Logger behoben. Behebt https://wordpress.org/support/topic/conflict-with-beaver-builder-plugin-4/.
  • Add filter simple_history/admin_location that makes is possible to move the main page from the dashboard menu to any other menu page, for example the Tools menu. Fixes https://github.com/bonny/WordPress-Simple-History/issues/140. Example usage of filter:

    php
    // Move Simple History log sub page from the "Dashboard" menu to the "Tools" menu.
    add_filter('simple_history/admin_location', function ($location) {
    $location = 'tools';

  • Make it easier to extend SimplePostLogger by making $old_post_data protected instead of private. https://github.com/bonny/WordPress-Simple-History/pull/173.

2.31 (May 2019)

2.30 (April 2019)

  • Add better Gutenberg compatibility.
  • Don’t log WooCommerce scheduled actions. Fixes https://wordpress.org/support/topic/cant-use-flooded-with-deleted-scheduled-action-woocommerce-webhooks/.
  • Store if post password has been set, unset, or changed.
  • Store if a log entry comes from the REST API. Stored in the event context as _rest_api_request.
  • Check that logger messages exists and is array before trying to use.
  • Bump required version in readme to 5.4. It’s just to difficult to keep the plugin compatible with PHP less than PHP version 5.4.
  • Updates to some translation strings.

2.29.2 (January 2019)

  • Fix for (the still great) plugin Advanced Custom Fields 5.7.10 that removed the function _acf_get_field_by_id that this plugin used. Fixes https://wordpress.org/support/topic/uncaught-error-call-to-undefined-function-_acf_get_field_by_id/.

2.29.1 (December 2018)

  • Fix another PHP 7.3 warning. Should fix https://wordpress.org/support/topic/php-7-3-compatibility-3/.

2.29 (December 2018)

  • Make log welcome message translateable.
  • Add two filters to make it more ease to control via filters if a logger and the combination logger + message should be logged. – "simple_history/log/do_log/{$this->slug}" controls if any messages for a specific logger should be logged. Simply return false to this filter to disable all logging to that logger. – "simple_history/log/do_log/{$this->slug}/{$message_key}" controls if a specific message for a specific logger should be logged. Simply return false to this filter to disable all logging to that logger. – Code examples for the two filters above:


    // Disable logging of any user message, i.e. any message from the logger SimpleUserLogger.
    add_filter( ’simple_history/log/do_log/SimpleUserLogger‘, ‚__return_false‘ );

        // Disable logging of updated posts, i.e. the message "post_updated" from the logger SimplePostLogger.
        add_filter( 'simple_history/log/do_log/SimplePostLogger/post_updated', '__return_false' );
            `
    

  • add_filter(’simple_history/log/do_log/SimpleUserLogger‘, ‚__return_false‘);

  • Fix notice in Redirection plugin logger due because redirection plugin can have multiple target types. Props @MaximVanhove.
  • Fix warning because of missing logging messages in the categories/tags logger. Props @JeroenSormani.
  • Fix warning in the next version of PHP, PHP 7.3.

2.28.1 (September 2018)

  • Remove a debug message that was left in the code.

2.28 (September 2018)

  • Always show time and sometimes date before each event, in addition to the relative date. Fixes https://wordpress.org/support/topic/feature-request-granular-settings-changes-detailed-timestamp/.
  • Use WordPress own function (wp_privacy_anonymize_ip, available since WordPress version 4.9.6) to anonymize IP addresses, instead of our own class.
  • Update timeago.js

2.27 (August 2018)

  • Fix notice errors when syncing an ACF field group. Fixes https://github.com/bonny/WordPress-Simple-History/issues/150.
  • Fix notice error when trying to read plugin info for a plugin that no longer exists or has changed name. Fixes https://github.com/bonny/WordPress-Simple-History/issues/146.

  • Weitere Textstellen übersetzbar gemacht.
  • Show plugin slug instead of name when translations are updated and a plugin name is not provided by the upgrader. This can happen when a plugin is using an external update service, like EDD.
  • Übersetzungs-Updates im Protokoll gruppiert. Nützlich, da man manchmal mehrere Übersetzungen auf einmal aktualisiert und das Protokoll dann voll von diesen Einträgen ist.

2.26.1 (July 2018)

  • Fehler behoben: Kompatibilität mit PHP 5.3

2.26 (July 2018)

  • Unterstützung für das Jetpack-Plugin hinzugefügt. Für den Anfang werden Aktivierung und Deaktivierung von Jetpack-Modulen protokolliert.

  • Fix notice in Advanced Custom Fields logger when saving an ACF options page.
    Fixes https://wordpress.org/support/topic/problem-with-acf-options-pages/, https://wordpress.org/support/topic/problem-with-recent-version-and-acf/, https://github.com/bonny/WordPress-Simple-History/issues/145.

2.25 (July 2018)

  • Add wp_cron_current_filter to event context when something is logged during a cron job. This can help debugging thing like posts being added or deleted by some plugin and you’re trying to figure out which plugin it is.
  • Fix for event details not always being shown.
  • Fix for sometimes missing user name and user email in export file.

2.24 (July 2018)

  • Added user login and user email to CSV export file.
  • Fix notice in postlogger when a post was deleted from the trash.
  • Clear database in smaller steps. Fixes https://github.com/bonny/WordPress-Simple-History/issues/143.
  • Fix notice in ACF logger due to misspelled variable. Fixes https://wordpress.org/support/topic/problem-with-recent-version-and-acf/.

2.23.1 (May 2018)

  • Remove some debug messages that was outputed to the error log. Fixes https://wordpress.org/support/topic/errors-in-php-log-since-v2-23/.
  • Fix error beacuse function ucwords() does not allow a second argument on PHP versions before 5.4.32. Fixes https://wordpress.org/support/topic/error-message-since-last-update/, https://wordpress.org/support/topic/errors-related-to-php-version/.
  • Added new function sh_ucwords() that works like ucwords() but it also works on PHP 5.3.

2.23 (May 2018)

  • Add logging of privacy and GDPR related functions in WordPress. Some of the new privacy related features in WordPress 4.9.6 that are logged: – Privacy policy page is created or changed to a new page. – Privacy data export is requested for a user and when this request is confirmed by the user and when the data for the request is downloaded by an admin or emailed to the user. – Erase Personal Data: Request is added for user to have their personal data erased, user confirms the data removal and when the deletion of user data is done.
  • Fix error when categories changes was shown in the log. Fixes https://wordpress.org/support/topic/php-notice-undefined-variable-term_object/.
  • Fix error when a ACF Field Group was saved.
  • Fix error when the IP address anonymization function tried to anonymize an empty IP adress. Could happen when for example running wp cron locally on your server.
  • Fix error when calling the REST API with an API endpoint with a closure as the callback. Fixes https://github.com/bonny/WordPress-Simple-History/issues/141.
  • Rewrote logger loading method so now it’s possible to name your loggers in a WordPress codings standard compatible way. Also: made a bit more code more WordPress-ish.
  • The post types in the skip_posttypes filter are now also applied to deleted posts.
  • Add function sh_get_callable_name() that returns a human readable name for a callback.

2.22.1 (May 2018)

  • Fix for some REST API Routes not working, for example when using WPCF7. Should fix https://wordpress.org/support/topic/errorexception-with-wpcf7/ and similar.

2.22 (May 2018)

  • IP addresses are now anonymized by default. This is mainly done because of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
    Both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses will be anonymized and the IP addresses are anonymized to their network ID.
    So for example the IPv4 address 192.168.123.124 is anonymized to 192.168.123.0 and
    the IPv6 address 2a03:2880:2110:df07:face:b00c::1 is anonymized by default to 2610:28:3090:3001::.

  • Added filter simple_history/privacy/anonymize_ip_address than can be used to disable ip address anonymization.

  • Added function sh_error_log() to easily log variables to the error log. Probably only of interest to developers.

  • Fixed logging for plugin Redirection. The logging of URL redirects and so on stopped working some while back because the Redirection plugin started using the WP REST API. But now it’s working again!

2.21.1 (May 2018)

  • Make sure support for Advanced Custom Fields is activated for all users – and not only for the developer of the plugin 😉

2.21 (May 2018)

  • Added support for Advanced Custom Fields (ACF): when a ACF Field or ACF Field Group is created or modified or deleted you will now get more details in the activity feed.
  • Changes to taxonomies/categories/tags now include a link to the modified term and to the category that the term belongs to.
  • The post types in the skip_posttypes filter are now also applied to trashed and untrashed posts (not only post edits, as before).
  • Don’t log Jetpack sitemap updates. (Don’t log updates to posttypes jp_sitemap, jp_sitemap_master and jp_img_sitemap, i.e. the post types used by Jetpack’s Sitemap function.) Should fix https://wordpress.org/support/topic/jetpack-sitemap-logging/.
  • Don’t log the taxonomies post_translations or term_translations, that are used by Polylang to store translation mappings. That contained md5-hashed strings and was not of any benefit (a separate logger for Polylang will come soon anyway).
  • Fix notice in theme logger because did not check if $_POST['sidebar'] was set. Fixes https://github.com/bonny/WordPress-Simple-History/issues/136.
  • Fix thumbnail title missing notice in post logger.
  • Fix PHP warning when a plugin was checked by WordPress for an update, but your WordPress install did not have the plugin folder for that plugin.
  • Fix unexpected single-quotations included in file name in Internet Explorer 11 (and possibly other versions) when exporting CSV/JSON file.
  • Fix filter/search log by specific users not working. Fixes https://wordpress.org/support/topic/show-activity-from-other-authors-only/.
  • Fix a notice in SimpleOptionsLogger.
  • Better CSS styling on dashboard.
  • Add filter simple_history/post_logger/post_updated/context that can be used to modify the context added by SimplePostLogger.
  • Add filter simple_history/post_logger/post_updated/ok_to_log that can be used to skip logging a post update.
  • Add filter simple_history/categories_logger/skip_taxonomies that can be used to modify what taxonomies to skip when logging updates to taxonomy terms.

2.20 (November 2017)

  • Protokollierung für Beitrags-Vorschaubilder hinzugefügt.
  • Use medium size of image attachments when showing uploaded files in the log. Previously a custom size was used, a size that most sites did not have and instead the full size image would be outputed = waste of bandwidth.
  • Make image previews smaller because many uploaded images could make the log a bit to long and not so quick to overview.
  • Update Select2 to latest version. Fixes https://wordpress.org/support/topic/select2-js-is-outdated/.
  • Show a message if user is running to old WordPress version, and don’t continue running the code of this plugin.
    Should fix stuff like https://wordpress.org/support/topic/simple-history-i-cannot-login/.
  • Fix an error with PHP 7.1.

2.19 (November 2017)

  • Filter simple_history/user_can_clear_log hinzugefügt. Gehe zu false bei dem Filter, um die „Clear Blog“ Schaltfläche zu deaktivieren.
  • Remove static keyword from some methods in SimpleLogger, so now calls like SimpleLogger()->critical('Doh!'); works.
  • Don’t show link to WordPress updates if user is not allowed to view the updates page.
  • Benachrichtigungsfehler in SimpleOptionsLogger behoben.
  • Fix for fatal errors when using the lost password form in Membership 2. Fixes https://wordpress.org/support/topic/conflict-with-simple-history-plugin-and-php-7/.
  • Code (a little bit) better formatted according to WordPress coding standard.

2.18 (August 2017)

  • Set from_term_description correctly, fixes https://github.com/bonny/WordPress-Simple-History/issues/127.
  • Filter simple_history/post_logger/skip_posttypes hinzugefügt.
  • Don’t log post type jetpack_migation because for some users that post type filled the log. Fixes https://wordpress.org/support/topic/updated-jetpack_migration-sidebars_widgets/.

2.17 (June 2017)

  • Fix search date range inputs not showing correctly.
  • Change the message for when a plugin is deactivated due to an error. Now the plugin slug is included, so you know exactly what plugin has been deactivated. Also the reason for the deactivation is included (one of „Invalid plugin path“, „Plugin file does not exist“, or „The plugin does not have a valid header.“).
  • Added more filters to log message. Now filter simple_history_log_debug exists, together with filters for all other 7 log levels. So you can use simple_history_log_{loglevel} where {loglevel} is any of emergency, alert, critical, error, warning, notice, info or debug.
  • Unterstützt jetzt das Protokollieren geänderter Spracheinstellungen im Benutzerprofil. Dies wurde in WordPress 4.7 eingeführt.
  • Box in der Seitenleiste ergänzt (mit einem Link zu den Einstellungen)
  • Don’t log when old posts are deleted from the trash during cron job wp_scheduled_delete.
  • HHVM is not used for any tests any longer because PHP 7 and Travis not supporting it or something. I dunno. Something like that.
  • When „development debug mode“ is activated also log current filters.
  • Administratoren bekommen eine Warnung angezeigt, falls die Titelform eines Loggers länger als 30 Zeichen ist.
  • Fix fatal error when calling log() method with null as context argument.

2.16 (May 2017)

  • WP-CLI-Unterstützung hinzugefügt. Du kannst jetzt mit dem Befehl wp simple-history list die letzten Einträge des Protokolls abrufen. Zur Zeit ist list der einzige verfügbare Befehl. Lasst es mich wissen, wenn ihr weitere Befehle benötigt!
  • Änderungen an Theme- oder Plugin-Dateien werden jetzt protokolliert. Wenn eine Datei editiert wurde, zeigt das Protokoll die Unterschiede an. So erkennst du beispielsweise, wenn ein Kunde CSS-Styles geändert oder PHP-Quellcode eines Plugins bearbeitet hat.
  • Removed the edit file logger from the plugin logger, because it did not always work (checked wrong wp path). Intead the new Theme and plugins logger mentioned above will take care of this.

2.15 (May 2017)

  • Use thumbnail version of PDF preview instead of full size image.
  • Remove Google Maps image when clicking IP address of failed login and similar, because Google Maps must be used with API key.
    Hostname, Network, City, Region and Country is still shown.
  • Notice beim Logger für verfügbare Updates behoben.
  • Notice beim Logger für Redirection behoben.

2.14.1 (April 2017)

  • Fehlerbehebung für Benutzer älterer PHP-Versionen.

2.14 (April 2017)

  • Unterstützt jetzt das Plugin Duplicate Post.
    Wenn ein Benutzer einen Beitrag oder eine Seite dupliziert, siehst du dies im Protokoll, inklusive eines Links zum Original und der Kopie.
  • Log-Level-Information aus dem Titel im RSS-Feed entfernt
  • Make date dropdown less „jumpy“ when loading page (due to select element switching to Select2)
  • Filter für „Limit Login Attempts“ wird nur hinzugefügt, wenn das Plugin aktiv ist. Dies behebt ein Problem mit „Limit Login Attempts Reloaded“ und eventuell anderen Forks dieses Plugins.
  • Die Debug-Seite zeigt jetzt die installierten Plugins an.
