Logtivity Now Supports Staging and Development Sites

Logtivity allows you to monitor all the important events on all your WordPress sites.

For example, it can be incredibly helpful to get notifications for new Administrator logins or new published posts.

However, you don’t always need to get those same notifications on your staging and development sites. You don’t want your site’s logs to contain events that happened during testing.

To solve this problem, version 1.11.1 of the Logtivity plugin is available now. This release makes it much easier to work with copies of your site.

Logtivity 1.10 Allows You to Quickly Connect Multiple Sites

One of the major benefits of Logtivity is that it can track ALL your WordPress sites. This is a big advantage over normal WordPress plugins that must be configured and monitored site-by-site. Logtivity offers you the ability to easily monitor all your sites from a single dashboard.

Setting up a large number of sites is now even easier with the release of Logtivity 1.10.

Previously, you needed to install the Logtivity plugin and configure all the settings via the WordPress admin area.

Logtivity Notifications Now Provide Much More Information

A few weeks ago, we discovered that Logtivity was recording all the activity on a WordPress site during a successful hack.

Have you ever had your site hacked? It’s a scary experience because you don’t know what the hacker has done. Fortunately, our customer was able to feel better because Logtivity gave them a 100% secure record of everything the hacker did.

After this incident, we started to brainstorm about the future. Could Logtivity let customers know what was happening while the attack was happening? The answer is, “Yes, if we improve Logtivity notifications”.

So we’ve been working hard to upgrade the notifications you get for key events. You can now get a lot more useful details inside your Logtivity notifications. Logtivity is perfectly placed to report on security incidents like this and also on more day-to-day activity.

Your Logtivity Charts Now Have Advanced Date Ranges

Logtivity is a WordPress activity log with a big difference. Not only can you track all the activity on your site, but with Logtivity you can also turn that information into beautiful and useful charts.

Displaying your data in charts gives you a helpful and organized overview of your site’s key metrics. You can use these charts to show logins, purchases, subscriptions, cancellations, downloads, or any other key events. If it happens on your WordPress site, Logtivity can turn it into a bar chart or a line chart.

We’re happy to say you can now customise the date range for charts. Your charts are updated with advanced date ranges, so you can zoom in to view any time period.

This video shows the new date ranges in action:
