WP nonces? (3 posts)

    I am testing wordpress out with various themes, etc.

    However, I just want to know if you can create a longer nonce key.

    For example: example.com/something&_wpnonce=shortsequence

    Could change into this: example.com/something&_wpnonce=longermorecomplexsequenceandalmostimpossibletoguess

    I guess it can contribute to WP security.

    Also is there a way to refresh the nonces, because I am aware that they are cached for a certain period of time. Is there a way to refresh all of them and assign users different nonces.

    This should help:

    You can create longer salts to use in wp-config.php here:
