Wordpress nonce

These help to give security to WordPress.

wp_nonce_field( $action, $name, $referer, $echo )

Like this:

  <form method="post">
    <!-- some inputs here ... -->
    <?php wp_nonce_field( 'name_of_my_action', 'name_of_nonce_field' ); ?>
  </form>

Then we can verify it:

if ( 
    ! isset( $_POST['name_of_nonce_field'] ) 
    || ! wp_verify_nonce( $_POST['name_of_nonce_field'], 'name_of_my_action' ) 
) {
 
   print 'Sorry, your nonce did not verify.';
   exit;
 
} else {
 
   // process form data
}

Also, try using wp referer field() and wp_get_referer() to verify where the submission came from.

And for admin pages, use check_admin_referer();
