Love your database. Keep expired events under control.
Developed to work with The Events Calendar 3.0, this plugin allows for expired events to be automatically vacuumed up rather than leaving them to clutter up your database. If you are still using The Events Calendar 2.x then you should use this older version of Housekeeper, noting that it still has some minor bugs and of course remembering that awesome people use the latest and greatest.
By default, the plugin schedules clean-up tasks to run once a day and limits itself to handling a maximum of 100 events at any one time. This can be adjusted programmatically for special cases.
This plugin was written by Barry Hughes (it is not an official plugin by Modern Tribe, so don't go pestering them for support). If this helps you out then buy the plugin author a beer! More than anything, it will make you feel good about yourself.
