Description

It would be great if WP could track any activity around plugins, eg. install, activate, disable, update, delete.

Seeing as plugins are most often the causes of problems with WP, it would be good to know which was the last plugin activated, or updated, particularly on sites with many plugins.

For example, I'm currently troubleshooting a problem which may be due to a plugin I recently updated, however I have no idea which one it could be, and disabling/re-enabling all plugins is not really the best solution.

A fairly simple nice-to-have that would greatly aid troubleshooting.

  • Component changed from General to Plugins
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Severity changed from minor to normal
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is something that would be better suited for a plugin than in core. This is something that would need extensive UI and back end work.

I think this would be a fantastic plugin. And http://wordpress.org/plugins/audit-trail/ might handle it for you already.

Also, I've used this plugin to track activation/deactivation dates: http://wordpress.org/plugins/plugin-activation-date/
