Post Expirator
[resolved] All picked expiration times go back -7 (15 posts)

    This just starting happening we usually set posts defined in a certain category to expire on 23:59 now we I choose 23 for example and click update its automatically going to 16!

    It looks like no matter what I try and put in for the post time expiration time it automatically forces it back -7 hours! Any idea why this might all of a sudden start happening ? Been working fine for a long time! Thanks in advance!

    Using 2.01 of plugin!

    Is your timezone set correctly for the wordpress install?

    Yes - I am in Pacific time zone I have it currently set to UTC -7 currently 4:05 PM here...

    Also as a side note I just did a test post for 4:02 PM set Post Expiration to 16:02
    when I click publish it then shows @ 09:02 ! That being said the post did expire on the actual time I requested which was the 16:02!

    Are you willing to change your timezone to a timezone string (instead of UTC -7) and see if the issue is still there?

    I have a same issue but with a 4 hour subtraction of the date I set. Each time I update a post which has an expiration date, 4 hours is subtracted from the time I had set. But nothing is expiring at all.

    I have my time set to New York, and can't go to UTC timezone difference because the Ajax calendar plugin requires a City timezone.

    If I can't set timezone to UTC, does that mean I can't use the Expirator plugin?

    Thanks.

    BTW, hosting is linux with DreamHost

    Same issue here (see this thread for long troubleshooting process: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/post-expiration-defaults-to-10-am-posts-dont-expire?replies=5), including some information on how the displayed expiry time fixes itself when I disable any calendar-related plugins (including the Ajax Event Calendar). I can get newly-created posts to expire, but I did appear to be having trouble with posts created before the change to Daylight Savings a couple weeks ago.

    Shared hosting, Linux, single-install.

    Same here. Every save subtracts 4 hours. Any progress with a fix?

    I am also having the same issue, but I set a time and it sets it to expire 4 hours ahead of time.

    I believe this issue should be fixed in 2.1.0, which has just been released.
