    This is awesome - love it. Once I figured out that I had to activate it one site at a time (in multisite) it works.

    Notifications worked as well, but I am getting multiple notifications. For content that I had set to notify one day before expiration, I got not less than 21 notifications. Do you know why?

    Thanks in advance!

    The bold was only so that you could see the issue clearly. Rereading it, it looks a bit emphatic.

    Hi Paul!

    It's only been two days, so I'm not bugging, but I just wanted to let you know that I am using and love this plugin and it's exactly what my client is looking for, so once we get the notification issue taken care of it will be stellar.

    Do you think it's something with my email client?? possibly? (gmail - so probably not?)

    Thanks again!!

    Hi

    I do think that I have a clue about the problem , as I "suffer" from the same symptom.

    In my case it seems like i get one notification for each time Content-Scheduler runs the expiration check.

    As i have set up
    "Expiration frequency = 60" and
    "Notify before expiration = 7"
    do I recive one notification per hour from the expiration day -7 days

    I might have missunderstod "Expiration frequency" but I believe that the purpose of this is to make a check in the database if there is any posts/pages that are to expire at or before the time when the check is run. If so is the selected options applied to that post.
    And those checks are run at the intervall defined by the "Expiration frequency".
    Unfortunattely does it seems like the notification function is run at the same intervall - so for example if you should set up a 10 minute schedule so would you recieve a mail each 10 minutes.

    The notification option is one of the biggest reasons why I decided on Content-Scheduler as I do have many pages on my site that are valid for a year at a time, and after that need a review as it for example contain a price list valid for the current year and then need to be updated.

    Would be a very nice feature to either get an option to limit the notification to one notification per day or one notification per post that are to expire.

    Thanks for a very good plugin !
