Why Increase Loggin-in Expiry Time

Sometimes while developing a wordpress website, you dont want wordpress to log you off automatically from the website you are working on or in an other case, you might want to increase log-in expiry timer for your website’s users. Here’s a tiny piece of code that you can copy and paste into your functions.php file to help achieve the goal.

Source Code

[php] add_filter( ‘auth_cookie_expiration’, ‘loggedin_for_10days’ );

function loggedin_for_10days( $expire )
return 864000; // 10 days in seconds
