Log Filter v0.5.3

By Byrne Reese
Posted October 7, 2010, in Developer.


This plugin was created to limit which activities are written to the Activity Log (and hence the internal mt_log table in the database).

Specifically, it adds a new mt-config.cgi setting: LogExclude. LogExclude takes a comma separated list of log categories to exclude from the activity log; messages in those categories are simply ignored and will never reach the db.

For example:

LogExclude straight_search

would stop all searches from being logged.
