I want to keep track of how long a specific WordPress theme has been active, not just installed. The end goal being I want to display a notice after a user has created
x number of posts and the theme has been active for
I can handle displaying a notice, and counting the number of posts published in a specific time, but I was wondering if there is a good way to keep track of how many hours the theme has been active.
I imagine the best way would be to set an option or something stored in the database, and update this each hour? Or maybe save a timestamp in the database of when the theme was activated and when the theme was deactivated (initially
null), then check these two variables and the current timestamp to determine how long its been active?
Thank you for any help you can offer!
