This update took quite some time to finish, but finally it is here. We are happy to announce the new Search 2.0 Add-on, which adds search functionality to WordPress’ most popular and widely used audit trail plugin WP Security Audit Log. This update which features new functionality and also a completely revamped, new UI. Let’s see what is new in this exciting update of the Search Add-On.
New Search Filters
Prior to this update you could only search for a specific change done by a user by using the username filter. Now you can use the filters to search for activity from a user with a specific First Name and Last Name.
We also included a new search filter for Post Type. So if for example you have a blog post and a post of a custom type (such as Movie from a movie database) with the same name, you can easily filter the search results for changes that happened on that particular post type.
Save and Load Search Term and Filters
In this update of the Search add-on we also included the ability to save the search term and filters. Therefore if for example you have to search for something specific from time to time, you can save both the search term and filters and reload them whenever you need to do the search again.
Other Notable Updates in Search 2.0 Add-On
Apart from a number of add-on performance improvements, we have also:
- Added a new button to clear search results,
- Included hover over functionality to filter audit trail either by IP address or username.
