The new version of WP Security Audit Log plugin uses the WordPress built-in revision system to keep record of the content changes in the WordPress audit trail, allowing you to see what users changed in posts, pages and custom post types content.
More Comprehensive Monitoring of WordPress Content
One of the benefits of using WP Security Audit Log to keep a WordPress audit trial is the granularity of the audit trail itself. For example when the URL of a post is changed, the plugin logs that specific change in the WordPress audit trail rather than a generic post was modified alert.
The same applies when other properties of a post are changed such as the date, status, content, categories etc. From this version onwards, the plugin will report even more details; it will report what changed in the content.
Keeping Record of the Actual Changes in Your WordPress Content
When the content of a blog post, page or custom post type is changed WP Security Audit Log plugin logs the change and provides you with a link allowing you to see what was actually changed in the content. Below is a screenshot of Alert 2065 which records content changes in a blog post:
Once you click the link in an alert like the one in the above screenshot you can see the actual changes the Alert is keeping a log of, as seen in the below screenshot.
All of the alerts listed below have been updated to include the revision link when content is changed:
- Alert 2065: The content of a published post was modified
- Alert 2068: The content of a draft post was modified
- Alert 2072: The content of a post submitted for review was modified
- Alert 2066: The content of a published page was modified
- Alert 2069: The content of a draft page was modified
- Alert 2067: The content of a published post with a custom post type was modified
- Alert 2070: The content of a draft post with custom post type was modified
Update to the reports module
We also released an updated reports module, which includes support for this new content change monitoring system. Therefore the new reports you generate will also contain the link to the WordPress revision change which you can use to see what the users changed in the content of a post, page or custom post type.
