         We know from reading the documentation that Sitefinity will log errors but what about "normal" activities? The CMS is out on a public facing server and like any other website is open to attack attempts. If someone should compromise the administrator login or any login with the ability to alter content through normal CMS channels they could inject malicious Javascript or HTML. However if we are logging all such content changes to a log file, the windows event logs, or some other kind of log we can configure our monitoring software to pick up on changes and compare them to a list of authorized changes (through an internal change request system) and then alert if a change is made to the content of the website outside of authorized means. So does Sitefinity offer the ability to record normal content changes to some kind of log? If it doesn't natively, can someone direct us to functions that exist in the API that we could use for such a purpose?
         Alternate solution, what about adding our own triggers to the SQL tables that govern content? We could write such changes to a custom table and then produce a "log" from that.

    We are open to input and suggestions.

    Hi Christopher,

    Thank you for using our services. That's a tough one - currently we offer only the error logging, but we'll be working on delivering such functionality for one of our upcoming releases. If adding triggers to the Db tables suits your needs for now, I'd recommend you this method. I hope you find this information useful. If you need some additional information, please let us know.
