The Events Calendar Housekeeper

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.

  • Configurable: clean up events almost as soon as they have expired or enforce a buffer period of 1 week upto 6 months
  • Recurring events are intelligently curtailed (the expired instances will be removed, other events remain untouched)

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.

Can't get it to work? Check out the FAQs in the first instance and if that doesn't work feel free to post on the plugin support forum.


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.
