Login Session / First party

This blog is built over wordpress platform so when you want to login to the admin console area, /wp-admin/ wordpress uses the wordpress_[hash] session cookie to store your authentication details.

After login, wordpress sets the wordpress_logged_in_[hash] session cookie, which indicates when you’re logged in, and who you are, for most interface use.

WordPress also sets a few wp-settings-{time}-[UID] cookies with duration of one year. The number on the end is your individual user ID from the users database table. This is used to customize your view of admin interface, and possibly also the main site interface.

This blog also uses Google Apps Login plugin to give you another way to login to the admin console area. Google Apps Login plugin allows existing WordPress user accounts to login to the admin console area using Google to securely authenticate their account. This means that if you are already logged into Gmail, for example, you can simply click your way through the WordPress login screen – no username or password is explicitly required. Google Apps Login plugin sets the google_apps_login cookie and it will expire under one day from the time it has been set.

  • qtrans_admin_language – A first party cookie to set the primary language of the website administrator (30 days duration)
