WordPress – Show Activity Log on the Frontend Dashboard

In this tutorial, we share with you a guide to display the activity log on the frontend. This can be very useful to integrate this frontend page to a frontend dashboard from which the users of a multisite network can easily manage their websites.

Also, it can be really useful if you have been asked to create a site for a company that measures the online activity of each of their employees, and they have asked you to allow them to view the activity of each person on the frontend without having to deal with the backend.

For this we’ll use these two plugins:

  1. Activity Log: This plugin allows you to see your site’s activity log in wp-admin. You can download the plugin and install it on your site or multisite network.
  2. WP Frontend Admin: With this plugin, you can display any wp-admin page on the frontend to create frontend dashboards and web apps easily.

It’s important to mention that WP Frontend Admin is compatible with the following page builders:

  • Elementor
  • Visual Composer
  • Gutenberg
  • Divi
  • Beaver Builder
  • WP Page Builder
  • Page Builder by SiteOrigin
  • Oxygen
  • Live Composer

  • Etc.

To display the Activity Log page on the frontend using any of these page builders, you can use the following shortcode:

[vg_display_admin_page page_url="admin.php?page=activity_log_page"]

Once you enter the shortcode, click Preview to display the activity log on the frontend and configure your frontend page.

2- Configure your frontend Activity Log page

WP Frontend Admin will display the Activity Log page on the frontend. You’ll see a Quick Settings panel on the left side of the screen. This panel allows you to configure your frontend pages easily without having to program anything.
