I use a function to inset post at front_end. There are 3 different types of actions may trigger this function. So, in this function, should I write 3 verify_nonce?

Nonce generated is product of:

  • user ID
  • time
  • $action argument

The action is important part and needs to precisely describe what kind of event you are verifying. So if your actions are create something and delete something, your nonces should be generated for example like my_prefix_create and my_prefix_delete and verified accordingly.
