Hello guys, I really need some help with this. I am using the jQuery cookie file to set and retrieve my cookies, but I don't know how to modify it to set all cookies for more than one day.

Here's my code:

* @desc Create a session cookie.
* @example $.cookie('the_cookie', null);

*
* @param String name The name of the cookie.

* @option Number|Date expires Either an integer specifying the expiration date from now on in days or a Date object.
* If a negative value is specified (e.g. a date in the past), the cookie will be deleted.
* If set to null or omitted, the cookie will be a session cookie and will not be retained
* when the the browser exits.
* @option String path The value of the path atribute of the cookie (default: path of page that created the cookie).
* @option String domain The value of the domain attribute of the cookie (default: domain of page that created the cookie).
* @option Boolean secure If true, the secure attribute of the cookie will be set and the cookie transmission will
* require a secure protocol (like HTTPS).
* @type undefined
*
* @name $.cookie

jQuery.cookie = function(name, value, options) {
if (typeof value != 'undefined') { // name and value given, set cookie
options = options || {};
if (value === null) {
value = '';
options.expires = -1;
}
var expires = '';
if (options.expires && (typeof options.expires == 'number' || options.expires.toUTCString)) {
var date;
if (typeof options.expires == 'number') {
date = new Date();
date.setTime(date.getTime() + (options.expires * 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000 * 365));
} else {
date = options.expires;
}
expires = '; expires=' + date.toUTCString(); // use expires attribute, max-age is not supported by IE
}
// CAUTION: Needed to parenthesize options.path and options.domain
// in the following expressions, otherwise they evaluate to undefined
// in the packed version for some reason...
var path = options.path ? '; path=' + (options.path) : '';
var domain = options.domain ? '; domain=' + (options.domain) : '';
var secure = options.secure ? '; secure' : '';
document.cookie = [name, '=', encodeURIComponent(value), expires, path, domain, secure].join('');
} else { // only name given, get cookie
var cookieValue = null;
if (document.cookie && document.cookie != '') {
var cookies = document.cookie.split(';');
for (var i = 0; i < cookies.length; i++) {
var cookie = jQuery.trim(cookies[i]);
// Does this cookie string begin with the name we want?
if (cookie.substring(0, name.length + 1) == (name + '=')) {
cookieValue = decodeURIComponent(cookie.substring(name.length + 1));
break;
}
}
}
return cookieValue;
}
};


I was told to put this in the head section before my page, and it sets it for a year, but I want all the cookies set on the page to be set for a year.



$(function() {
$.cookie('name', 'value', {expires: 365});
});


any ideas?

well if you look at the code, setting it with the value 365 means you are setting it for 365 years.


but I want all the cookies set on the page to be set for a year.

What does that mean?

Well, I want every cookie being set on that page to be set for one year. Like, the expire date to set for a year.

The script above is the backbone for the cookie setting. Then I have a file that sets each cookie for specific things.

If you need to see that code (the one that sets the cookie) let me know.
