The WP Security Audit Log WordPress Plugin supports WordPress multisite networks right out of the box. The below video highlights the features of this WordPress activity log plugin when installed on a multisite network. The features are also documented below.

How WP Security Audit Log Works For Multisite Networks

The activity log WordPress plugin is a multisite network tool. This means that it has to be installed and activated at network level and not at child site level. The plugin is designed to work like this because as an administrator you need to know what is happening on all the child sites and on the network, and not just on a few selected child sites.

All the child sites form a part of the network, so if something goes wrong or there is suspicious activity on a child site, it might affect the network. Hence it is imperative to use the WP Security Audit Log as a multisite network tool and activate it network wide.

WordPress Multisite Network Super Admin Privileges

By default super administrators on a WordPress multisite network network can access the WordPress activity logs of all sites on the network.

The Site Selection Drop Down Menu

Super administrators can use the site drop down menu to filter the WordPress activity logs events per site on the WordPress multisite network. As per the example in the screenshot below the multisite network super administrator is selecting Site2 from the site selection drop down menu to filter the WordPress activity log events.

Once the site is selected from the Site drop down menu, the security events are filtered and the super administrator can see the WordPress security activity log for the chosen site as per the below screenshot.

If there are more than 15 sites in a WordPress multisite installation the Site Selection drop down menu is replaced with an auto complete Site Selection Auto Complete Search box as shown in the below screenshot.

Configuring plugin privileges in a WordPress multisite network

WordPress users with super administrator role in a WordPress multisite network installation are the only WordPress users who can enable or disable WordPress activity log events and configure the retention of the WordPress activity logs data.

Allowing Other WordPress Users to Manage the Plugin

Super administrators can allow other WordPress users which do not have a super administrator role to configure the plugin by configuring the WordPress activity log plugin privileges.
