CoreActivity 1.0 Beta #3

CoreActivity Beta #3 version is here, and it brings a lot of updates, new components and events, new settings, and instant and digest notifications support. The plugin can be downloaded from Dev4Press and GitHub for now, and soon it will be available on

Due to the huge backlog of plugins to be reviewed on, it is currently unknown when CoreActivity will be reviewed and available on Until that happens, CoreActivity will remain in the Beta stage and be available for download from the Dev4Press website. Based on the current estimates from, CoreActivity might wait until August or September (?). Because of that, I decided to release the plugin early, without waiting for to finish the review process.

The new Beta version adds some new functions for other plugins interaction, includes new event for failed logins from cookie-based checks, new events for transient records (set as disabled by default), support for the Contact Form 7 plugin, and several tweaks and fixes.

And finally, the plugin has a Notification system with three types of notifications: instant, daily digest, and weekly digest. Each type of notification can be configured, and most importantly, for each type, you can choose which events to include via the Events panel. So, if you want to get instant notifications for only a few events, that is very easy.

Updated Events panel with settings for Notifications

Instant notifications will be semi-instant. There will be an instant time delay included. So, if the event happens, and new instant notification is generated at the same time. But, if a few seconds later same event happens, there will be no new notification. Still, the plugin will use delay (5 minutes by default) to send the next instant notification with the list of all events logged in the previous 5 minutes. This way, your email will not be overwhelmed by too many emails coming through. Daily and Weekly digests will include overview (counts) of each component and event (as long as they are enabled for these types of notifications).

At this point, the plugin is mostly complete. The two major features remaining are Adminbar integration and Setup Wizard. These will be in the next Beta version soon. There are a few more minor things planned, and they may end up in the stable release or will be pushed to updates after that, but I plan to release the plugin next month.

More about CoreActivity

To learn more about the plugin, check out the official home page and the list of all components and events included with the latest version available. The download page is here. More information about the plugin will be added soon.

At this point, when it comes to the plugin features, it has plenty of ‘advanced’ features other Activity logging plugins are offering as the Pro up-sale. But CoreActivity will be a free plugin, with no Pro version, so everything added in the future will be included for free also! So, feel free to test the plugin and let me know if you find any issues and want to see more components and events added.
