Safe Transient Names


Transient names can sometimes get truncated without you realising.

This plugin provides a simple function you can call which will ensure your transient names will always be short enough to avoid being truncated.

Usage: <?php $safe_transient_name = get_safe_transient_name( 'your_transient_name_which_might_be_too_long' ); ?>


  1. Upload the safe-transient-names folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.

  2. Activate the “Safe Transient Names” plugin in your WordPress administration interface.

  3. Use <?php $safe_transient_name = get_safe_transient_name( 'your_transient_name' ); ?> anywhere in your code to get a safe name for your transient.
