This plugin adds a new, sortable, column to the users lists, which shows the date and time they registered.
Primarily useful for single site (which doesn’t show this at all), on Multisite Networks it adds the user’s registration info for all individual sites.
This plugin does not track any additional data other than what WordPress natively collects upon registration. It just makes the data visble.
No special instructions.
Why is the field blank?
Because some other plugins are
_doing_it_wrong(). When they created their column, they forgot to have the filter return the previous content, if it’s not their column, so it’s removing it. Since my plugin’s doing it right, I gave it a higher priority to stop that from happening in most cases.
Can I change the date formatting?
Not at this time. The code is hardcoded because so is WordPress and I wanted to keep it matching as much as possible. That means until WP changes how it formats that column, I’m not changing the plugin. It’s translatable, which will allow for different languages to format as needed, but that’s it.
Does this work on MultiSite?
Yes it does. When Network Activated, it adds a column on each sub-site’s user list to show registration date.
Why doesn’t it show registration time on Multisite?
Because Multisite doesn’t show that by default. If you set the request mode from list to excerpt, it’ll show the time. It’s a bit of a complicated way around it, but this stackexchange thread explains it in detail.
Why does it show the registration date/time as ‘Unknown’?
That means the values in the database are set to pre 1970 or post ‘now’ (whenever now is). Basically it had an invalid date.
Does this work on BuddyPress?
Why doesn’t this check for Stop Forum Spam anymore?
Overlap. After a lot of testing, I determined that Ban Hammer does this better and cleaner. So if you need that sort of thing, use the right tool.
Why did you remove the separate page?
Because it was redundant. If you can sort it all on one page, why not do that?
