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:

Logtivity Can Export Millions of WordPress Activity Logs

We have finally solved the original problem that kick-started Logtivity into life!

Back in 2019, Ralph (one of our co-founders) was getting frustrated. One of his clients was using a WordPress plugin to store their activity logs. The client had major reporting problems because of the amount of data collected on their site. The activity log plugin was storing millions of rows of data in the WordPress database. Whenever Ralph tried to export large amounts of logs, the site would show 502 errors.

Logitivity 1.7 Has Support for Software Licensing from Easy Digital Downloads

Logtivity is a new service that helps you understand exactly what’s happening on your WordPress site.

Understanding your site’s activity is crucial for eCommerce users. You want to know everything, including who paid, who downloaded your files, who upgraded their subscription, and more.

Logtivity 1.7 is available today and it has support for the Software Licensing extension from Easy Digital Downloads.

Logtivity 1.6 introduced support for the Easy Digital Downloads core, plus the Recurring Payments extension. Today’s release is another big step forward. If you sell WordPress plugins or themes, there is a very good chance that you use the Software Licensing extension. It is a cornerstone of the WordPress economy.

Software Licensing provides a powerful license key system that developers use to track usage of their software. For example, on PublishPress.com, we use Software Licensing to provide “One Site”, “Five Sites”, and “Unlimited Site” options. If someone chooses the “One Site” option, their license key provides them with updates and support for a single site.

How to Track User Logins in WordPress

There are two founders here at Logtivity: Steve (that’s me!) and Ralph. Outside of Logtivity, we both work in the WordPress world. I sell commercial WordPress plugins, and Ralph builds sites for clients.

For both of us, it’s important to track activity on our WordPress sites. We need to know how many people are visiting, making purchases, and logging in to our sites. You can track visitors with Google Analytics, and you can track purchases with your payment gateway, but it’s harder to track WordPress-specific information such as log ins.

Using Logtivity, you can get an overview of who is logging in to your site, and how many people are logging in every day.
