We’ve leveraged all the hooks we could find to better enable logging of member activity in the Control Panel. Audit tracks:

  1. Member Logins, including Control Panel & front-end
  3. Member Logouts, including Control Panel & front-end
  5. New Entries, including Safecracker
  7. Updates to Entries, via the Publish screen or multiple entries via the Edit screen, including Safecracker
  9. Deleting Entries
  11. New Members
  13. Deleting Members
  15. Editing of Members
  17. Changing Templates (editing a template, not its preferences)

We’re logging:

  1. The current user’s ID, username and group
  3. The date/time
  5. The impacted item’s ID, and name where available
  7. The member’s IP address
  9. The member’s browser data

Audit Pro lets you archive logged data, set custom email notifications and search log entries. Choose Audit Pro.

Tested in ExpressionEngine 2.5.5 & 2.6.1, but using standard EE & PHP code.

v1.0.5 includes: Bug fixes for older PHP versions or no support for PHP shorttags. Added support for member edit, added in 2.6.0. Fixed issue where member group name was not output for Logout.
v1.0.3/1.0.4 posted on March 18, 2013. Updated database code so that log tables are not deleted when uninstalled. Log data is preserved. Added support for archive column/status in case Pro is installed. Added IF NOT EXISTS to table creation. Added a safety check to a function triggered at login, to avoid errors when no results are returned.
v1.0.2 posted on March 11, 2013. Added support for front-end logins & confirmed that Safecracker posts/edits are tracked.
v1.0.1 posted on March 9, 2013. Removed Settings link from Extensions screen so that there is no Settings page. Settings page was returning an error as there were no settings.

Extremely helpful for anyone a stable of site authors. Get it before Mr Reeves raises the price, as it’s probably most valuable for more ambitious sites.
