Support » How-To and Troubleshooting » cookie timout of password protected sites
3 years, 11 months ago
today I updated to wordpress 3.5 and now, one of my custom settings misses (I know this could happen – i simply forgot..):
I customized the cookie timeout for password protected sites according a trick like this: http://originalexe.com/shortening-the-cookie-life-time-for-postpage-password/
I already figured out, that the file wp-pass.php doesn’t exist anymore and that the changes are made in the wp-login.php. But there it says:
// 10 days
setcookie( ‘wp-postpass_’ . COOKIEHASH, $wp_hasher->HashPassword( stripslashes( $_POST[‘post_password’] ) ), time() + 10 * DAY_IN_SECONDS, COOKIEPATH )
and I don’t know how I have to change the “10 * DAY_IN_SECONDS” thing, before there was just a number of seconds, easily to adjust.
Sorry, if my problem is quite obvious, I hope someone could help me anyway?

It’s easy :). It’s a math. It couts 10*86400 (number of second in one day). So if you for example want instead of 10 days just 10 minutes you just must write DAY_IN_SECONDS/144
Day in seconds is 86400 and if you divide it 144, you’ll got 600 – number of seconds in 10 minutes 🙂
