Nonce Extender


This plugin will allow you change the expire time for nonce codes generated with wp_create_nonce


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/nonce-extender directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Visit the general options to change the nonce


  • Help!, I locked myself out from changing settings or doing any actions as the nonce time is too short!

Please add define('DISABLE_NONCE_EXTENDER', true); to your wp-config.php file to disable the nonce from being changed, and then go and fix the option
