Post Expirator

Allows you to add an expiration date to posts which you can configure to either delete the post, change it to a draft, or update the post categories.

The Post Expirator plugin allows the user to set expiration dates for both posts and pages. There is a configuration option page in the plugins area that will allow you to seperataly control whether or not posts/pages are either deleted or changed to draft status. Additionally you can also choose to have the post categories change at expiration time. If you choose to change the post category, the default action of changing the status will be ignored.

The plugin hooks into the wp cron processes and runs every minute by default, but can be configured to use any cron schedule (hourly, twicedaily, daily, etc).

The expiration date can be displayed within the actual post by using the [postexpirator] tag. The format attribute will override the plugin default display format. See the PHP Date Function for valid date/time format options.
