All WordPress websites will automatically log you out after a certain amount of time. I generally like this feature as a security measure.
But what if you have a site that you NEVER want to log out of (a local development site, a site that is wrapped in an app, grandma’s photo-sharing blog, etc.)? Well, here’s your solution!
I invested some time this morning creating a simple plugin that will maintain your login cookie for 40+ years. Download it on Github. Hat tip to Alex Mills (Viper007Bond), who wrote the original code that I modified.
I hope you can get some mileage out of it! 🙂
