The Auditor Enters Closed Beta

Screenshot showing the audit log viewer

The log viewer offers charts to help you understand the pattern of use on your site. Pretty sweet eh?

The Auditor (name to be finalised) is a plugin that comes in two parts – an event logger that tracks key options and content changes within your WP install, and a viewer that lets you view what’s been happening on your site.

The closed beta for the plugin is strictly limited, and we’re rolling out the tool on our own sites before trying on client installs. Once we know that there are no issues or problems caused by the system we will review the beta feedback and make certain decisions on how and when we will release the final version.

The Auditor is designed for power users and administrators. It produces a wealth of data which is useful for debugging problems on sites caused either by users, XSS attacks and so on. User rights upgrades, password changes and so on are all logged in a searchable index on the database.

Beta testing is now closed.  Those who received the plugin will hear from us in due course with a link to a questionnaire.  We really appreciate those of you offering to test – by doing this we can make better software.

    This plugin will be free or paid? Already have a beta version released?

      It will be a paid plugin. However, we are also planning something that works as a service and will require a subscription.

    I just wanted to drop a note letting you know that I am very happy with this plugin. It is a great start and is working great. It has actually gotten to be fun for me to login each day and check to see if anything has changed, and it is very easy to understand what is happening.

      Thanks Shawn – that’s good to hear. We’re making a range of improvements prior to releasing an update – so it’s going to be even better soon!

    Put me on the list, too. I have 20 WordPress clients and I could beta test it on some of the most active ones. Thanks.

    I run a heavy-traffic website, and I am interested in testing your awesome plugin! It would be interesting to test its capability with analytics and the type of activity that happens on the website.

    please put me on the list ;)

    Looks like a missing link in WP auditing and WP security, taking it ever closer to the enterprise level CMS’s
    Good work guys!

  • Todd Lohenry 6 / Mar / 2012 at 7:17 pm

    I’ll test it for you. I’d like to be able to track the changes I make when setting up a site for a client…

    [...] Interconnectit has announced that The Auditor (name to be determined later) has entered the closed beta process and is currently looking for people to test the plugin. The plugin is an event logger that tracks key options and content changes within a WordPress installation and contains a viewer that lets you view what’s been happening on your site. This plugin sounds like the perfect option to determine if things are going on within your website that you were not aware of. The closed beta is limited to a select group of people but if you’d like to participate in the event, you can leave a comment on their announcement post explaining why you’d like to give it a try.

    I’m interested in taking a look.

  • Adam Parry 4 / Mar / 2012 at 6:01 pm

    Please put our name on the list

    Oh this looks absolutely amazing and will save me SO much time in the long run. I have dozens of sites on my servers and anything I can do to help managing everything will make my life so much easier.

    I would be extremely interested in beta testing this with you guys. I do have a lot of experience beta testing products and providing detailed feedback reports. I participated in 2 rather complex projects last summer and really enjoyed the process. I am not currently beta testing any other projects, so I do have time available to help out.

    thank you for your consideration

  • Philip Churchill 2 / Mar / 2012 at 9:06 pm

    Hi, Im a Microsoft MVP and regulary beta test software and would love to test your plugin on my site. We have approx 4 updates per day and would love to see what changes are made to the system by our users and writers.

  • Naomi 2 / Mar / 2012 at 8:38 pm

    Hello, I’d like to test this plugin for use on a new version of a large Multisite/BuddyPress install I’m launching in the next few weeks. With so many moving parts, I’d like to see exactly what’s been happening on the site to accurately respond to support requests and also see the pattern of use for ways to optimize.

    Thank you.

  • Ian Beyer 2 / Mar / 2012 at 8:24 pm

    I have a number of clients that are churches who need this kind of capability, am very interested in what you have.
