ToDo/Wish List

History/Backup of modified Admin files

I would love to see a configuration option for this plugin that enables saving a history of the files that it modifies. The simplest approach I see is: when overwriting a file, save old copy as <filename>.YYYY-MM-DD_HH.MM.SS.marcink 2016-04-20 17:40

Hi marcink, I have added this functionality in v2016-05-10 version. Thanks for your idea! — Giuseppe Di Terlizzi 2016-05-10 12:07



If plugin explain is not installed, you get this error:

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in .../lib/plugins/advanced/admin.php on line 399

It took me a while to find out about that.

This issue is fixed in v2016-10-24 release
