Bluetrait Event Viewer 2 is now out!

Bluetrait Event Viewer (BTEV) monitors events (such as failed login attempts) that occur in your WordPress install.

You can publish these events via a password protected RSS feed if you need to monitor multiple WordPress installs.

  • lostpassword_post
  • profile_update
  • add_attachment

  • switch_theme
  • publish_post

Please be aware that this plugin will phone home once a week to check for updates.
The only information sent is the current version of Bluetrait Event Viewer installed.

Event API

It is possible to add your own events to the event viewer. Simply call the following function when you want add an entry:

    btev_trigger_error($error_string, $error_number, __FILE__, __LINE__);


    btev_trigger_error($error_string, $error_number);

Argument Descriptions:

  1. $error_string: This value can be any string, it is used in the description field in the event viewer.
  2. $error_number: This value can be one of the following: E_USER_ERROR, E_USER_WARNING, E_USER_NOTICE. These values determine the type of message in the event viewer (Error, Warning, Notice).
  3. __FILE__: This is the file where the event occurred, please note __FILE__ is a PHP predefined variable. This value determines the source.
  4. __LINE__: This is the line where the event occurred, please note __LINE__ is a PHP predefined variable.

So an example would be:

    btev_trigger_error('Login Successful: "' . $user_login . '"', E_USER_NOTICE);


    btev_trigger_error('Login Successful: "' . $user_login . '"', E_USER_NOTICE, __FILE__, __LINE__);

NOTE: You should check to make sure that the plugin is active. The easiest way to do this is as follows:

    if (function_exists('btev_trigger_error')) {
        btev_trigger_error('Login Successful: "' . $user_login . '"', E_USER_NOTICE);
