How to use the event logger

It monitors, tracks and reports every change on your WordPress site, both in the admin and on the frontend. More than 50 events are instantly tracked with all details!

Know everything that’s going on your site

Monitor, track and log more than 50 events on the site in great detail. From user actions, to post edits and widget changes – Events Logger sees everything.

If you have just installed Security Ninja you will not see much activity, but once you start using the website you will see all activity listed on this page.

There are 6 columns with details about each activity

  • Time – What time the event took place and how long ago (eg. 47 minutes ago)
  • Event – A short description of what happened.
  • User – Who executed the action, or “anon” if user not logged in / automated task.
  • Details – User IP and a link to more details about the user – courtesy of
  • Module – Which group the activity is from – see more below
