Last Used Items

This plugin lets you quickly view your last edited WordPress items, similar to the "last…

This plugin works for posts, pages and custom post types, e.g. products.

After installation and activation a “Last Used” menu entry appears on top of the screen in the wp-admin area with the last edited items.

If your Site-URL changes during development, the log entries will have the wrong url. In this case use “Last Used Items Clear Log” in the settings options.

The plugin keeps database storage and traffic slim by only saving up to 1000 slim log-entries.
I have been testing the plugin with other major plugins, with no known issus.

This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/plugin-name directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
