Would this be done with a plug-in or built into the theme?
I want each post to log the user's IP or computer name or some unique identifier. After logging that identity a timer would start and once that timer completed, the individual post would black out. Either by changing the background to black, or by drawing a black box over the content.
I would then like text to be displayed in white that says when the user first accessed the post, how long they viewed it, and a timestamp when it blacked out.
My question here is:
Best to be done as a plug-in? or a part of a theme?
I can not code, and php, html is useless for the most part to me unless it is cut and paste.
