A complete record of everything that happens on your site.
Keep a closer eye on your site
A good show needs a well-managed backstage. A good site is no different.
Whether you have a site with multiple users or regularly make updates in your dashboard, you need a clear, transparent way to monitor changes — your online presence is too valuable not to pay attention to what happens behind the scenes.
A comprehensive list of all activity takes the guesswork out of site management, debugging, and repair.
The activity log for WordPress
- Records events for core WordPress and Jetpack activities.
- Provides detailed information for each event: timestamp, user, and description.
- Gives you access to the 20 most recent events.
Customers with Backup Daily or Security Daily will see events from the last 30 days, and if you have the Security Real-time plan you’ll see events from the last year. All sites with a paid plan have the added ability to filter activities by type and time range so you can quickly find the information you’re looking for.
Frequently asked questions
Here are answers to some common questions, and we’re always more than happy to answer any additional questions you may have.
Is the activity log included with the free plan?
Yes! Customers on the free plan have access to their 20 most recent site events. Upgrading to Backup Daily or Security Daily extends this: you will be able to see events from the last 30 days, and if you have Security Real-time you’ll see events from the last year.
How do I turn it on?
The activity log is automatically active on all Jetpack sites. To access it, install Jetpack, go to WordPress.com to manage your site, and look for the Activity tab in the left menu to browse recent events. Learn more about what kinds of events and details Activity tracks.
Are all activities and events recorded?
No. Although most of the core WordPress events and Jetpack-related events are logged, events specific to third-party plugins and themes — updating a plugin setting, for example — are not currently supported.
