Activating the WordPress Activity Log
Before you can start viewing the WordPress Activity Log, you must activate the feature by installing a plugin. We highly recommend the All-In-One WP Security and Firewall plugin, as not only does it include an activity log, but it also includes other useful security features. You can install the plugin from the WordPress dashboard. Once the plugin is installed, activate it through your dashboard.
Viewing the WordPress Activity Log
Once the plugin is activated, navigate to the plugin’s settings page and click on the “Activity Log” tab. Enable the activity log by switching to the right-hand side of the page. Now, view your website activity by clicking “View Log”. The activity log will then be displayed, showcasing all activity on your website in chronological order.
