Each ProBoards free forum has a security log that can be viewed by the main admin member of the discussion forum. Security log records include important actions taken by forum members, such as accounts deleted from the forum as well as any thread or post deleted, modified, locked, or stickied.

When reviewing the discussion forum security log, you'll be provided with the following information for each event:

Date: The date and time the logged action took place on the forum.

User: This will list the display name of the forum user responsible for the action.

IP: The IP address that was used by the forum member who completed the action.

Action: A summary description of the specific action.

The security log will list the activity of the last 1,000 actions that have taken place on the discussion forum, providing you with 100 results per page listed in order from newest to oldest.
