    My jQuery cookie script is only setting the cookie for a day...

    Hi everyone, I am using a jQuery cookie script to set the cookie of some elements on my website. One of the problems is that I need the cookie to not expire after one day, I need it to expire after a while (I'm going to start off with a year).

    Here's my script, the red part is what I've been editing.

    Code:

    /**

     *
     * @example $.cookie('the_cookie', 'the_value');
     * @desc Set the value of a cookie.
     * @example $.cookie('the_cookie', 'the_value', { expires: 7, path: '/', domain: 'jquery.com', secure: true });
     * @desc Create a cookie with all available options.
     * @example $.cookie('the_cookie', 'the_value');
     * @desc Create a session cookie.
     * @example $.cookie('the_cookie', null);
     * @desc Delete a cookie by passing null as value. Keep in mind that you have to use the same path and domain
     *       used when the cookie was set.
     *
     * @param String name The name of the cookie.
     * @param String value The value of the cookie.
     * @param Object options An object literal containing key/value pairs to provide optional cookie attributes.
     * @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).
