  • You need to reset the cookie, it is naturally set to 10 days.

    add_action('wp_head', 'setCookiePasswordTime');
    function setCookiePasswordTime()    {
        setcookie('wp-postpass_' . COOKIEHASH, $_POST['post_password'], time() + 10, COOKIEPATH);

    This sets the cookie to expire after 10 seconds, you can set it to whatever you like. Just put this code in your functions.php file.

    Ouch! That zapped the entire site when I updated the .php . I get all pages blank, and can’t login via admin. I will have to access the FTP area to edit this out.

    I tried the same code in my wp-includes/functions.php and it blew up my site up.
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function add_action() in /home/specialc/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 29

    You have to put this in your theme’s functions.php file.

    This is the way WordPress does his thing with post password.

    @graphfx21 : you can’t do a set cookie in the header, you have to do it in “template_redirect” for example.

    I edited the themes/canvas/functions.php and got this error message
    html/wp-content/themes/canvas/header.php:22) in /home/specialc/public_html/wp-content/themes/canvas/functions.php on line 97

    Could you please tell us exactly which file to add the code to? I do not have a file called template_redirect.
