Instant Cookie Expire – my first WordPress plugin

Recently, I published my first WordPress plugin: https://wordpress.org/plugins/instant-cookie-expire/ do5enef. It’s a very basic and simple plugin that does just one thing: setting the expire-time of a cookie when using a password protected post to “instant” instead of “10 days”.

This solves the problem that, once the password has been entered, you can access a password protected post for the next 10 days without having to enter the password again. In some cases, this isn’t wanted behaviour and so I crafted this one-line plugin.

Primarily, this was a testcase though. I wanted to learn the workflow of building WordPress plugins and publishing them to the repository. Currently I’m building my very own WordPress Security plugin (over 1500 lines of code already and still counting), which I hope to release by the end of 2016.

Of course I’ll keep you all posted!
